i'm trying to install the audio driver for my laptop and having problems. everything works great except for no audio. i locate the file, download it, try to open it, and this is what i get:

Archive:  /home/barry/Downloads/Audio_Conexant_v.
  End-of-central-directory signature not found.  Either this file is not
  a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive.  In the
  latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
  the last disk(s) of this archive.
zipinfo:  cannot find zipfile directory in one of /home/barry/Downloads/Audio_Conexant_v. or
          /home/barry/Downloads/Audio_Conexant_v., and cannot find /home/barry/Downloads/Audio_Conexant_v., period.

can anyone help me out here? thanks

Your trying to install a Windows driver. These drivers won't work on Ubuntu. Usually, the necessary driver just works out of the box. Please open the Terminal application and enter the following command: sudo aplay -l to see the current audio devices in use and post the output. –  phoibos Oct 10 '12 at 15:38
