My laptop has the usual tinny sound system, so I bought a Creative
X-Fi USB 5.1 gadget.  Some time back, Coling helped me to get that
working, and that is what I normally use for music.  However, I can't
get the audio in/output sockets to work, so I can't use that for a

My problem is the number of places that seem related to sound issues.
 I normally test the speaker setup in System Settings when using the
USB setup.  However, if I need to use the internal audio sockets I
have to switch back to the Intel HDA card.  This is where I come
unstuck.  No matter what I do I can't get sound out, although after a
lot of experimentation I have managed to hear others speak.

Aslamixergui simply shows the PulseAudio channel - so no adjustment is
possible there.  Alsamixer on Konsole shows that channel by default.
Pulling up the Intel channel I can set everything, including mic gain,
to a relatively high setting.  The X-Fi channel says that no
adjustment is possible.

It's possible that there is a microphone problem, but I've tried both
a stand-along mic and a headset, so I'm inclined to rule that out.

What have I missed?  The ideal would be to have everything working on
the X-Fi, but anything at all that can work will be an improvement :-)
