Audigy 2 ZS Platinum driver

Hey, I'm testing out ubuntu.

But there's no driver there for my Audigy 2 ZS Platinum card.

Anyone who know where I can find that driver?

Edit: I can see and choose the driver, but it will not work.

Help anyone?

Another thing: Now I can hear a bit of the sound, on Output #3, but It's VERY low and very bad.

Are you running the sound through ALSA?

BTW, here is an open source site for Creative drivers if you want to try your luck there.

I use an Audigy2 LS and these drivers work for me:

I've used's OSS drivers for several years now with no problems.

You may have to add the /usr/lib/oss/bin/soundon command to your /etc/rc.d/rc.local file to activate the drivers on startup.

Let me know if this works for you!
