Soundcard problems with Ubuntu 12.04?

Hi,
Newbie here. I have followed Geroge Smart's (M1GEO) notes on compiling and running WSPR on Ubuntu.

The program is instaled and runs ok, but after a bit of fiddling with settings I am still not getting any waterfall action and I am assuming there is still some audio problem. I start the programme from the command line and it outputs the warnings shown below.

I know the sound card inputs are generally working as I also run a spectrum analyser programme that works fine on the same audio inputs.

Any help much appreciated.
