I am running ubuntu in Dell Inspiron . Previously when I used windows vista , my USB speakers (logitech) worked well . Now when I connect to ubuntu , it is not working.

Any idea how to send the audio output to the USB speakers?

did you check to see if they're recognized by the OS? post the output of 'lsusb' – kicsyromy Jun 25 '11 at 4:58

click on the sound menu, go to sound preferences and in the output tab look for something like USB Speakers if it's there just make sure it's ticked off and it should work. – kicsyromy Jun 25 '11 at 5:10
Yes. Thanks. Make this as an answer. – vinoth Jun 25 '11 at 5:30
