That is becasue you have to compile it yourself. There is a makefile in there, which is a dead giveaway. Google "how to compile Linux makefiles". I would find you a link but I'm currently on my phone which makes it a bit harder to do so.
Also, check out the readme file. It should contain the compile instructions.

The "source directory" is the directory you found the readme in (the one you have a screenshot of above).

It usually isn't reccomended to compile drivers yourself unless you really know what you are doing. There is more to simply just installing the drivers. You need to have them get booted with the computer, and they have to be linked  to the kernel in such a way so that they keep working when the kernel gets updated.

 

It's easy enough to compile them though. You literally do what the readme says.

Run:

sudo make

then:

sudo make install

Was there a problem with the sound?

Did sound not work on your computer?

Have you tried doing anything else to fix it?

If not, here are some things to try before installing another driver. Linux comes with drivers already installed, and there is usually no need to install another sound driver.

Hi Ramia, I'm definitely a newbie, but I did install Ubuntu recently and mute was checked by default. I know you aren't using Ubuntu, but it might be worth really digging around in the settings menus to see if something like that might be happening. It took me awhile to find the problem.

I also wanted to tell you that I downloaded a typing tutor that had a "sounds" box checked in one of its menus by default. Even when the program wasn't running, I would get a robot voice telling me exactly what my mouse was hovering over. It was very interesting but also annoying. I thought it was Ubuntu's Universal Access (settings to help people with disabilities) malfunctioning, but the little typing program was just able to override all the Ubuntu settings. The robot didn't go away until I unchecked that silly box.
Anyway, I hope reading about my experiences gives you some new ideas about where to start looking. I have definitely learned that I have to keep up with all the programs and understand their menus, etc before downloading more. I got a little excited when I first got Ubuntu and figured out to do some basic installation.  :bananas:

Also, have you looked around in your area for a linux user group? I happen to live in Raleigh NC where Redhat is, so I'm really scared to go to a meeting, but I've decided to try one. Anyway, best of luck! :hug:

I'm not too conversant with Mint / Ubuntu  systems.. but sound can need some adjustment to get it right... many distros use Alsa and Pulse audio. some just Alsa...

 

within both you have to select your sound card  and adjust playback settings...... and what devices..i.e headphones   if you have something wrong the sound may not work..
