SoundBlaster 5.1vx activate all speaker channels Ubuntu 12.04

by Gyro
Today my sound card decided to stop playing sound on all 6 channels, and instead just played regular stereo (front left and right).

After some searching I found this simple fix to activate all speaker channels of a SoundBlaster 5.1vx on Ubuntu 12.04 Precise:

Open daemon.conf
# sudo nano /etc/pulse/daemon.conf
