You said you already check "standard stuff".. Did this include turning
CPU Scaling off and setting _all cores_ to "performance"? In my
experience this always makes a very big difference in quantity of xruns
regardless of the sound card. Xubuntu doesn't have anything out of the
box for that so you'll either have to use cpufrequtils or if intrested
I've made a simple python-gtk front-end which sits in the tray for
managing the task if you're interested...

Also switching off (internal) wifi improves the situation here.

I get the same problem with using the zoom H4 as a USB device and up to
now found no solution. I recently got a zoom R8 and with that the issue
doesn't seem to be present (although I haven't tested it much as USB
device...) so I assume it *might* be a device problem.

So.. good luck and do share relevant results, as I think some general
'laptop' info might be interesting regardless of brands.

Lorenzo.
