    Sound issues (again)

    Thank you for your time. I rebooted my computer and it seems to be better now. I don't know what that was all about!

    Sound issues (again)

    Hi folks. I posted several times before regarding my SoundBlasterX AE-5 sound card (I could not get the sound to play through all the speakers). Finally, I just gave up and decided that if I really wanted to listen to music, I would just switch back to Windows 10 for that. However, I now...

    Still trying to get SBX AE-5 sound card to work!

    I really appreciate all of your hard work in trying to solve this problem! I don't understand a whole lot, but I did try the code you posted but got this: bash: syntax error near unexpected token `0x1102,' ( whatever that means!). Also, I thought I had the newest kernel just installed yesterday...

    I already had pulse volume control. I will list here all that you asked for (and probably some things you didn't ask for!) To answer your question, I don't need a sound card, it's just a personal preference of mine and has been for years.

    I hope this is what you mean! I do see something there that is very puzzling...I DO NOT have the SB Recon 3D card installed! My card is the SB X AE-5. I don't get it [email protected]:~$ inxi -v 5 System: Host: brenda-MS-7752 Kernel: 5.4.0-84-generic x86_64 bits: 64 compiler: gcc v...

    Thank you for your reply but I am completely new to Linux and although I did follow the link you posted, I have no idea what it all means or what I am to do! Forgive my ignorance!

    Still trying to get SBX AE-5 sound card to work!

    No sir, it's definitely not an onboard sound card! I purchased it several years ago to replace the SB Recon 3D sound card. I did check the Driver Manager and the only drivers that are showing are for my Nvidia graphics card. Thanks anyway

    I have searched the internet but as yet, have not been able to find anything to help me (at least not anything that I can understand!). I have the SBX AE-5 sound card installed on my desktop computer with Logitech 5.1 surround speakers but I am only able to get sound out of two satellite...

    Sound issue

    What an imbecile I am! Thank you. Maybe if I would take the time to read more carefully, I might be able to figure some of these things out myself! Anyway, I was able to select my sound card, however, I'm still only getting sound out of the subwoofer and two satellite speakers (sigh)

    Sound issue

    Well, I didn't think I'd be back here so soon, but here I am! This time, the issue is with my desktop computer running Linux Mint 20.2. I have a Sound Blaster X AE-5 sound card installed and I'm using a Logitech 5.1 speaker system. I'm only getting sound from the subwoofer and two rear satellite...
