I have a laptop with a 5.1 audio set. when I used windows (which I can no longer afford) I was successfully using the realtek drivers that the OEM (Acer) provided. With Ubuntu this is no longer the case (5.1 is not working properly) There is an hd realtek driver designed for Linux on their site (realtek). How do I install it, and, should I?
