After spending 10.000 years on getting my soundcard working on 10.04 (mostly searching for information about how to enable it) I would like to write a small guide on how I just did it on 12.04.

  1. Add the medibuntu repository.
  2. Install the alsa-firmware, i.e. in a terminal, run
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install alsa-firmware
  3. Restart the computer.
  4. In a terminal, run
  5. Arrow left/right until you find <Clock In>.
  6. Arrow up/down to select 44100 (default is 48000).

That's it!

Should probably work on 10.04 as well, but I can not confirm this as I mixed up my system there by double installing different alsa-firmware versions and so on...
