I have been desperately trying to get my creative x-fi soundcard to work with my 10.10 install and I am almost there! I have 1 speaker working and when I open volume control I see that my device is Creative X-Fi (Also mixer).
However, it appears to be stuck on mono. When I open
pavucontrol I get a message that says
Connection failed: Connection refused and it exits. Before it closes I can see that playback is set to mono but it won't let me change before it closes.
Can someone help me over this last hump? I am running 32 bit 10.10 any advice is much appreciated.
