Gale, thanks for helping.Sound is showing up on ubuntu, below. The Delta 66 is not showing up as a device on Audacity even though it was previously. Should I start a new thread just for thee Delta 66? I could not figure out what to do with the information on the m-audio link you provided. That is my fault because I do not know many terms or even the names of programs I need.
All I did was use the sudo command you gave me. Inputs show up also. All devices show up in audacity after restarting. Only the alesis usb device works. It is still hard to get sound in most programs. Sometimes running a program, for example band in a box with wine, changes something and sound stops working other places.
I have not installed alsa tools. I didn’t know there was such a thing. The only ways I know to install things are of off the ubuntu software page or with the terminal. With the terminal all I have ever done is cut and paste code. I have no idea how or why it works.
All of the devices show up on the alsa mixer but nothing lights up. Basically I don’t know what programs I need to install or how to instal them if they are not part of ubuntu’s software bundle.
You mean if you a play a song in other audio software, you may not get sound even if you select the built in audio output in pavucontrol?
If it’s as bad as that I would consider reinstalling pulseaudio (see the instructions link I posted).
I would get built-in audio and all external audio devices working with built-in Ubuntu applications, before worrying about Band in a Box. WINE does not work perfectly with all Windows apps.
Sometimes if you need a particular app or game you just have to run Windows natively, either in a virtual machine hosted by Ubuntu, or by installing Windows in a partition then choosing Windows or Ubuntu at boot time.
As you can see from the information I posted, it is strongly recommended to install the alsa-tools packages, because you then get the “envy24control” panel to configure the Delta 66.
sudo apt-get install alsa-tools
sudo apt-get install alsa-tools-gui
then to launch the envy24 control panel
Or you can install alsa-tools (console based) and alsa-tools-gui from “Ubuntu Software Centre”. I would install both because you never know if you may need the console tools, given you seem to have audio issues.
You can always use the Ubuntu forums if you need help using Ubuntu.
