Though sad, but I decided to upgrade my old Windows XP that served me for many years (with a few resets, of course). First thought to install Windows 7, but after thinking, I decided to try coming just so freshly Ubuntu 10.10.
Immediately apparent scary fonts on web pages (even after I installed the package with the fonts from Windows). Perhaps it was the other on-screen antialiasing. But now not about it, it's a matter of habit, I hope.
The problem arose with the sound, and I don't know how to solve it. The sound card was detected and working (if not more important, is a built-in sound card X-Fi eXtremeGamer). Sound is output on all six channels here. But I need to configure to low frequencies from all channels was mixed into the channel to the subwoofer. Other transformations are required. Now, if promises to launch the playing of any music (I do not put any other apps and trying on the standard), the music, why it spreads to all 5 channels, but no bass at all. Under Windows, this is solved by a trivial check in the drivers, the "Bass redirection" or something like that. I would like to allow this in future versions of the OS.
That is, I need the sound subsystem in Ubuntu low frequencies from any channel added to the subwoofer channel. However, no transformations 2.0 to 5.1 is not necessary. 2.0, 2.1, 4.0, 4.1, 5.1 as 5.1, etc. Enlighten me, how would I configure the sound in this way. Or advise any good manual (preferably in Russian). And that has plagued the thought to stop sweating and yet to put Windows 7 where sound certainly won't be a problem. Thanks in advance.
