    The support for Xonar DX was added after Alsa 1.0.16, maybe you could not avoid compiling afterall.

      if what marakaid said doesn't work:
      Firstly - are you in the audio group? (not sure if it's the default for ubuntu or not)
      Secondly - try
      Code:
      lsmod | grep snd_virtuoso
      and post the results; if you get nothing say so.

        Not sure what you mean by audio group but there where no results after I did this lsmod | grep snd_virtuoso

          Well that explains it.
          Code:
          sudo modprobe snd-virtuoso
          then run alsamixer and make sure nothing is muted and try to play a wav file
          edit: any audio file you should do really.
          edit2: incase you are wondering the command I gave you should have printed something like:
          snd_virtuoso 8324 3
          snd_oxygen_lib 29184 1 snd_virtuoso
          snd 61000 16 snd_seq_oss,snd_seq,snd_pcm_oss,snd_mixer_oss,snd_ virtuoso,snd_oxygen_lib,snd_pcm,snd_timer,snd_mpu4 01_uart,snd_rawmidi,snd_seq_device

          if the driver had been loaded and functioning correctly.

              If it the modprobe works correctly nothing will print; sorry should have made that clear.
              Edit: I really need to read stuff before I hit post/save etc. in my above post the stuff printed after edit2 is what lsmod ... would have printed. >.<

                    EDIT: Oh wow it just occurred to me, do you have onboard audio as well (does it work)?
                    Edit2: Don't give up quite yet; the driver is loaded now it's just muted/needs a reboot I think (after doing point 1 and 2 on my list)
                    edit3: you do have onboard audio; could you give that a try? (snd_hda_intel is a common onboard audio driver)

                    Try
                    Code:
                    aplay -l
                    in the shell if nothing is printed then the sound is probably just muted. (might be to do with pulseaudio)
                    try alsamixer once more just incase if it still doesn't work


                    1-
                    Code:
                    sudo nano /etc/modules
                    and add snd-virtuoso to the bottom of the file.
                    2 -
                    Code:
                    grep 'audio' /etc/group
                    grep 'pulse' /etc/group
                    if your user name isn't there (audio/pulse repectively) do
                    Code:
                    sudo gpasswd -a username audio pulse
                    (if you are just missing one only use the one missing)
                    3 - see if there is a file called asound.conf in the /etc/ directory if not
                    Code:
                    nano ~/.asoundrc
                    and add
                    Code:
                    pcm.pulse {
                        type pulse
                    }
                    ctl.pulse {
                        type pulse
                    }
                    pcm.!default {
                        type pulse
                    }
                    ctl.!default {
                       type pulse
                    }
                    reboot and then check the sound isn't muted and try playing a sound.

                      pcm.pulse {

                      ctl.pulse {
                          type pulse

                      }
                      reboot and then check the sound isn't muted and try playing a sound.
                      ok I do have onboard sound and it does work I just turned it off via bios
                      and this is the outcome of
                      Code:
                       aplay -l
                      **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****

                        Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
                      then I added
                      Code:
                      snd-virtuoso
                      to the end of the sudo nano /etc/modules
                      the output of grep 'audio' /etc/group

                      pulse-rt:x:118:
                      I had to
                      Code:
                      nano ~/.asoundrc
                      and add
                      Code:
                      pcm.pulse {
                          type pulse
                      }
                      ctl.pulse {
                          type pulse
                      }
                      pcm.!default {
                          type pulse
                      }
                      ctl.!default {
                         type pulse
                      }
                      the I rebooted but still no sound . now does my name have to be at the end of these also pulse:x:116:
                      pulse-access:x:117:
                      pulse-rt:x:118: ?
