Hey Folks,

I'm trying to trouble shoot a problem I have on my Ubuntu 16.04 setup with a Schitt Modi2 DAC.  I have followed the Alsa configuration instructions located here:

The problem I run into is that in the settings under the Audio tab, Alsa is not listed in the dropdown list of output devices.  Available options are:

auto detect

I can confirm that it works using aplay and deadbeef is able to use Alsa.

Hoping someone out there might have run into this as well and might know what is missing/wrong as I would love to use gmusicbrowser.

Thanks and best regards.

Have you tried booting a LiveCD and install gmb and see if alsa shows up? (To rule out that something is messy with your current install.)
