Running VLC on Ubuntu 11.10, I am not able to use 5.1 ch output.

In Windows, Whwn I right click, and then choose Audio on the contextual menu, I can set the device to 5.1 ch....

However, in my Ubuntu setup, only the Audio Track selection is active, the Audio channel and Audio Device option are grayed out....

Any suggestions?
