I have bought logitech wireless headset, but for some reason, I can't choose it from the sound options. I tried live-cd, and there the headset was workin correctly. I also noticed, that i could also choose my integrated audio card in live cd, but in in my computers sound options there is only my other sound card.

I have installed it, but there is also just one sound card. –  Willie Jan 18 '13 at 12:37
ok... then you need to focus on the 2nd sound card 1st and not the headset. Helpful tips here: help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToSetupSoundCards 1st task: find the chipset it uses (please add it into your question; after you do I will remove this comment and make a new one if needed). –  Rinzwind Jan 18 '13 at 12:42
I tried looking the chipset from the motherboard, but i didn't found it. I found my motherboards manual, and there reads Chipset is Intel P965 / ICH8R, but I am not sure, if this is the right chipset. I also wondered, that is it possible to reinstall all the audio things, because I do remember, that I saw both of those audio cards when i first time installed ubuntu. –  Willie Jan 18 '13 at 13:18
No no ;) check the box and/or the manual that came with the card. I assume the 2nd sound card is probably added later(?) Systems tend to have 1 sound card when store bought (alternative: what is make and model of soundcard?) –  Rinzwind Jan 18 '13 at 13:45
Yes I indeed have added "creative xtreme gamer" soundcard, and that's the one my ubuntu recognizes and it works just fine. I just mentioned the integrated sound card, because I thought ubuntus should have recognize it, but I dont really care, if it works or not. I might have been little unclear befor, but should i now try to find wich chipset this Creative card is? –  Willie Jan 18 '13 at 14:46
