It's not a problem with Ubuntu.
To use the speaker unit you choose the hardware output in volume 
control. In my case it is the Saitek A250 portable USB speaker unit, 
when the USB controller is plugged into the computer.
Under Windows the controls on the speaker then allow full functioning, 
play, pause, ff, rew, etc. via the buttons on the speaker unit. These 
controls are not implemented under Linux.
But I'm thinking there must be a way. Ric suggested finding out how the 
buttons are mapped under Windows as a possibility.
