Default Freebob problem with FireWire Solo (verymeta)

I'm replying to my own post:

> Hi all. I need some help getting Freebob to work with Ubuntu Gutsy. I'm

It works!!

Actually Freebob was working fine all along. I just thought it wasn't
because aplay -l didn't work, and because when I clicked on the sound
icon in the top right I got a 'no soundcard found' message - but I guess
these things don't matter when you are using freebob. In fact the only
reason I wasn't getting sound was I had the wrong input selected on my
Firewire Solo, d'oh!

I feel slightly silly, but maybe some other dumb newbie like me will
read this post and find it helpful :-)

And wow, the sound quality with the Firewire Solo is so much better than
when I was using an onboard soundcard!!
