Sound Blaster X-Fi Linux 32/64-bit Driver has now been released. The readme file has the following information:



Quick install
=============
In terminal,

1) Goto source directory

2) Execute make command as root

make

make install


When I go to terminal I get:

michael@michael:~$


so I try to "goto source directory" but Terminal gives me this message:

michael@michael:~$ cd/desktop/driver
bash: cd/desktop/driver: No such file or directory

I guess the CD/ command does not work in terminal?


SO!!! What do I have to do to install this driver?
Note: The driver has been downloaded and extracted on my desktop in a directory named "Driver".

Thanks
Mike

Ubuntu is case sensitive. Please try here ...
cd/desktop/Driver

Don't you mean cd ~/Desktop/driver or cd ~/Desktop/Driver

I figured out the problem.


In terminal, when you are changing directories you don't use /. For example, cd/Desktop. All you do is type cd Desktop.

The installation went perfectly and I have sound with my Fatality sound card. FINALLY!

Thanks for the help.

Not really.. when starting with / you start from root directory and you need to enter the whole path. Without / it's relative. Example:
1. cd /home/your_homedir/Desktop or cd ~/Desktop
2. If you are already standing in your homedir, then and only then will cd Desktop work.

Also note you need a space between cd and /
