I have "successfully" used the Fast Track Pro usb card on Ubuntu Studio
8.04.2.  I am not a proficient user of Linux, just playing with it as a
hobby.  There are a couple programs that I won't do without and which I
haven't been able to run satisfactorily on wine.  Plus, I found a really
nice DAW for windows that only cost about $70 (us) that does just about
everything I need.

That being said, I was able to get the Fast Track Pro up and running on
Linux on a Gateway laptop with reasonable latency.  I believe current
versions of the card are class compliant and it is recognized by your system
so it should run on Linux.  I had difficulty getting it working which I
attributed to my lack of knowledge of Linux and the various  programs
available.  But, I was able to use it to play back system sounds and YouTube
audio.  In addition, I was able to set up jack and do some recording and
playback with Ardor, Hyrogen, and one of the syth programs.

Anyway, I would be willing to try to help you get the card to work, but it
may take me a couple of days to put together what I did to get it working.
I can at least probably point you to websites that I found helpful in
getting it to work.
