Creative ZEN running on UBUNTU

I have UBUNTU and I want to use a software program that works on UBUNTU.

I am using Ubuntu 7.10 - the Gutsy Gibbon - released in October 2007.

I have installed kZenExplorer and Gnomad2. I have tried kZenExplorer and got it to connect and see the default songs that came on the unit, but when I try and Sync, it freezes up. I haven't tried Gnomad2 yet, I will and the I'll let you know. Thanks for any help.

Will try it out at next available chance. Thanks. Do you know that this will fix my Freezing up? Loaded question, I know, but I have it installed ... I'll look at the blog.

I posted a walkthrough for this on my blog here.

Basically Gnomad2 is the way forward. For anyone new to Linux in general, and Ubuntu specifically, the blog talks you through it. For those that have used it before, you know the drill - Add/Remove Applications, and get Gnomad from the Open Source applications.

I need the ubuntu (linux) software for my "creative labs PD1170 Tank You

You can go to and download the ISO image and burn it onto a DVD/CD using imgburn (you can google it). It's a free software.

That should give you a linux software CD. You can run it off the CD, or you can use it to install linux onto your laptop.

No sound from system with Ensoniq AudioPCI running XUBUNTU 9.04

There is but one cure for this problem I am afraid and that is install compatible drivers for Ubuntu and your sound card ,windows and Ubuntu are two diffrent languages completely ..
Most manufacturers realise that Linux/ubuntu is popular medie now and do have downloadable drivers on their site , however if you cant find rthem dont despair there are many quick savy programers who use ubuntu and they write their own programs to solve such problems . many of these you will find on the linux site or click on add on's in your menu to go to the ubuntu site for recent updates and downloads the cure to the problem is and only is compatible program drivers .. or a new card with same available ...

Creative ZEN running on UBUNTU

I've had the Zen working fine on various versions of Ubuntu - it's worth upgrading though.

I heard the KZenExplorer isn't really supported that much, I tend to use Gnomad2, it seems the option of choice.

Ubuntu sound problem

Hi Josh

First of all check system setting.

It seems like your modules are not loaded, if you just installed, I recommend you to
re-install Ubuntu, if this is not the case, try to run -

sudo apt-get -f install

If everything fails, try this - sudo /etc/init.d/alsa-utils start

Creative ZEN running on UBUNTU

Creative Zen uses MTP which is a Microsoft jobby. Gnomad will allow you to transfer files between Ubuntu and your Zen, and you should be able to find Gnomad under the Add/Remove option in Applications.

I'll make a full walkthrough and add it to my blog later today.

Trying to get online with Linux

I use knoppix v3.3 (linux) to test a hardware part (1cd only, not the latest, but the fastest) boot from cd.

Test your system with that first.

Thats just a half part of the problem, but after that you have only 50% left. (I am not a linux expert, but I can use that CD easy)
