None of those are the firmware loader for the echoaudio cards.
It's done through udev/hotplug.
I did have an email exchange with Webmaster <info at ubuntuvoice.com> and
tried to help out in my amateurish way.
The firmware was correctly installed, but hotplug wasn't playing nice as
far as I could tell. Replacing udev+hotplug is not trivial.
I'm using the same distro and same card in somewhat the same way, and it
works, but I may have fixed something or else be at a different stage of
upgrading various bits and pieces.
