Compaq IJ650 Install and SoundBlaster Audigy LS Install


I am fairly new to Fedora Project and am still trying to get everything working. I installed Fedora next to WinXP on my Compaq Presario 5000 Desktop. Everything worked fine but i am having a little bit of trouble getting my SoundBlaster Audigy LS sound card to work. Fedora detects it but it will not play any sound. I have heard about ALSA but i have no clue on how to install that.

Also i am trying to use my Compaq IJ650 printer. It works sort of. It is detected by Fedora but when I try to print something, it only pushes out a blank peice of paper. No Print.

Again i am pretty new and not exactly sure how to use the Terminal to get around. So if someone can give me any support on these things, it would be greatly appreciated!

Arrow

for the sound :
in a terminal, run "alsamixer" and adjust levels (headphone and PCM), they are usualy down when starting KDE (I don't know why )
if u are trying to play mp3 using xmms, download first of all xmms-mp3 plugin and install it.
I hope u will enjoy your sound card with Fedora
Good luck .

Reset your printer and it should work if detected.
Good luck
