Creative SB X-Fi - centre/subwoofer not working

Hi guys.

I'm a complete linux newbie at the moment. I've been hunting for solutions to my soundcard troubles, but so far nothing seems to have resolved it.

In a nutshell, I have a 5.1 speaker set up, but the centre and subwoofer speakers are not producing any sound under linux.

My soundcard is a Creative SB X-Fi XtremeGamer.

I attempted to install the official creative driver, but received this error message:

Any help would be most appreciated!

I do apologise if this issue has been previously covered - I did a number of searches on the forum prior to posting, but didn't find anything.

Thanks for the reply.

That command just takes me into the directory on the desktop where all the driver data is located. I suspect I have put it in wrong?
