1 Answer 1

What is the exact name of the card? Did it ever work on a previous Ubuntu installation?

Please take a look at the ALSA support Matrix: http://www.alsa-project.org/main/index.php/Matrix:Vendor-Creative_Labs

ALSA is the default component for handling audio hardware in Ubuntu, other solutions like OSS exist but may be more difficult to set up.
