General :: Sound Can Play But Music Can't In Game Second Life On Ubuntu / Sort That?
Mar 7, 2010
Sound can play but music can't in the game "second life" and I'm using it on ubuntu. I don't know how to fix the problem or where to begin and I had asked a tech in that game and they said it might have to do with the firewall, but wouldn't help me out because I wasn't premium. The first sentence is the problem.
currently running mint 8, and have installed both spotify and steam via winedoors. both installed no problem and "work" ok when i open them. my problem is, in steam, it connects, updates, shows my games etc, but when i go to open it it tells me it is lauching my game but nothing happens, no game launch. with spotify, i connect, can see all my playlist etc, buyt when i play a song, no sound! also, im having issues with a program called tuxguitar, which is a midi based guitar tool. where everything is playing through but also no sound.
I have been trying to play this game dawn-rpg.sourceforge.net and it immediately crashes whenever I try to play sounds. The only other sound in this system I have are the sounds for the bash/dash terminal.
So my questions are:-
a. How do I test if the sound system is working alright. b. Do I need to increase some kind of priorty/niceness to sound systems to make sure they get the available resources (cpu, memory ) whatever it needs ?
On the same topic, while I was searching on the Net I got this link http://rosegardenmusic.com/wiki/low-latency_kernels .
I know this is actually for people who want to make sounds/music but can some of these ideas/instructions be useful for me as well ?
I've been using Linux for about a week, now, and yesterday I finally got my audio to work. Before shutting-down yesterday, I installed some more audio-plugins. When I started-up my computer today, there were errors in the console-text that appears while the Debian Linux OS is loading. When I got to the desktop, I tried to play music, but no sound came-out. So, I tried to uninstall the plugins I installed yesterday and restarted. I got similar errors in the console-text as earlier. When my desktop loaded, I still had no sound. I had several problems with the entire sound architecture of the computer. I made some more changes in the application-download-manager-thingy and restarted and I no longer got the errors at boot-time.
Unfortunately, I still have absolutely no sound, and it appears as if ALSA is effectively dead. My soundcards are Rocketfish (PCI) and Realtek HD Audio (Integrated). I got Realtek to work yesterday with OSS.
Another problem is that WINE doesn't work, with the exception of WINE's default programs. I've been trying to get this thing to work for at least four days now, and I've made absolutely no progress...
Also, after fighting with it for a few days, I finally managed to get the internet to work, but Linux still thinks that I'm offline. It's really weird. This one's not so much of a problem as it is annoying. In addition, if I click-on the network-manager-thingy, it says that none of my connections have ever been used. Odd.
iv bin haveing prbles with ubuntu lately ever since i first got it i have a sound probelm when i play this game it has sound but if i go on your tube and play music no sound comes out and it just make the vido lag and i have to force quit

After nhandlers IRC session on ubuntu user days, I got inspired to check out irssi. One thing that I am having trouble with is getting irssi to play an alert sound of some sort when my nick is highlighted. I've tried this:
how can I play audio (Mythtv - Play Music) simultaneously on two sound cards using ALSA drivers. I have two cards working well. One card is an onboard Intel cards, and the other card is a USB Audio card. Both cards are working well. I use the onboard Intel to output SPDIF to an amplified. The second USB card is bound to MPD service and it outputs an analog signal to a second amplified. I'd like to have the following configuration: Play to the default card with 5.1 passthrough, while the second card, connected to a second amplifier, plays an analog signal to the same audio played by Mythtv Play Music. In other words, I need to mix somehow and play the same audio on both cards.
Here is the list of cards:
root@mythtv:~# aplay -L null Discard all samples (playback) or generate zero samples (capture)
I just got my hands on an MSI E7235-295US and slapped Ubuntu 9.10 on it. So far everything's worked great, but I am beginning to get a bit concerned about my sound quality. The laptop itself has 5 speakers + subwoofer so I should be getting 5.1 sound, if I understand things correctly (the newegg link should provide more details) and when I play anything (music, flash, videos, games, etc...) the sound comes out 'muffled'. Almost as if it is in a concert hall, maybe. I initially wondered if the problem is related to the 5 speakers and if the sound is initially only setup for two. If that is the case, nothing I've done has seemed to made any real difference. I've tried changing the master/pci channels, but it only hides it a little, and doesn't solve the problem.
This seemed to be on the right track, but the laptop is still really new and not listed in the alsa file.

I used to be able to use the NFL game center on nfl.com to watch the play-by-play when I was using Fedora 10.Now that I am on Fedora 12 it no longer works. I am able to click into a game and see all the info but the play-by-play drive chart no longer displays anything. Does anyone out there know how to get this working?
Since I began using F11, Midnight Commander takes a life to start. Previous versions of Fedora didn't give me any problem. I know many of you don't use it, but for those who needs MC, anyone is having the same trouble? F11 x86_64.
I've searched upon numerous links for a "fix" but they are either for older releases of fedora, or, I was able to make appropriate changes to the F12 KDE4 release such as the F11 how to fix pulseaudio and vlc guide in this forum
Problem: In order to get the sound to play on my system I have to go to PulseAudio Device Chooser and select default server,sink, etc. every login. I thought it was suppose to change it "permanently" , getting more specific here, when ever I play music in vlc I tend notice gaps/skips in my music very short skips .5 to 1 second sometimes 2 - 3, just now I was playing music flipping through some tracks then I am greeted with a nasty sound I cannot describe. Does anyone have a proper fix for this? Only result I came upon I have not tried yet was something with hda intel sound card and power settings, which feel will not work anyway
Here is my sound card: Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03) Also not to mention, I use to get pop-ups notifying me of pulseaudio device not being to be found and asked to forget this device
I had windows 7 and I was addicted to play GTA san andreas multi-player. It is still in my computer > C:/ PROGRAM FILES/ROCKSTAR GAMES/samp.exe I want to play that now but when I click on samp.exe it opens with File Roller 188.8.131.52
When I upgraded to 11.04 games like Postal 2 and Lugaru do not play right anymore. I find them very choppy and the game sometimes just stops working. Now when I was using 10.10 the games were working fine.
I have been struggling to find a way to play a game under Wine without using the CD, so looked if it was possible in Wine. I came across this commmand: Code: sudo mount /home/joseph/BIONICLE.iso -o loop /media/cdrom0/ which I tried. It didn't work, and gave me an error about how there was no "cdrom0". I assumed that it was created whenever something is mounted. Out of desperation, I removed cdrom0 from the command, and then things got funky. Doing so replaced all the contents of /media (there were no files, only useless floppy folders, since I have no floppy drive) with the contents of the ISO file. I tried using sudo to delete the files, but it said that it was a read-only filesystem. I tried changing the permissions using sudo chmod +w /media, but it didn't work, and complained about being read-only. I am unable to mount anything now! Can someone help, both with deleting /media, and possibly with running Wine games without the CD?
I can't play mp3 from Rhythmbox music player, it says MPEG-1 Layer 3 (MP3) decoder plugin required, and also I can't play mp4 from movie player it says h.264 decoder and MPEG-4 AAC decoder plugin required. what a joke!!! can you imagine for a newbie and for the first time like me use linux operating system find something like that.
I'm trying to figure out what in the world is going on with my sound in OpenSuSE. I put in a brand new Audigy chipset soundcard and finally got some sound to come out of the speakers. I used the guide here: SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE. to fix the permissions on my sound and am able to get sound-test to play sounds as well as connect to the sound device in my vmware and play sounds. That being said, I have terrible sound quality coming out. There is a lot of static sound like white noise and the volume of the actual sound played is very low compared to the noise. The sounds also distort somewhat.
I have tried the pulse audio change in the tutorial above also and have been searching around google. The only problem that I saw similar was a person who fixed the problem by updating KDE. I don't have KDE, I'm using Afterstep.
My last laptop was replaced (I gave it to my step-dad, his laptop broke and I bought myself a new one).
I am running Squeeze (as I was on my other laptop) and everything is fine except for the games. On my other laptop games like OpenArena and Warzone 2100 ran perfectly fine, but on this laptop, they are impossible to play. The game will open, but everything is so slow and choppy that it takes a couple of minutes to even move the cursor to the exit game buttons.
My current laptop is an HP ProBook4525s with the current specs:
AMD Athlon Dual-Core P340 2.2 GHz processor 2GB DDR3 RAM ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 Graphics Card
I'm not sure what other information to put here, I've tried searching how to fix this and most people say to lower the resolution and details for the games but that doesn't work, heck, even Tux Kart is too slow to play!
When I installed squeeze I was informed that I didn't have the rtl8168d-2.fw firmware for my laptop, I'm not sure if that helps here at all (can't seem to find what it is for, the only things that google gives me are very technical with fixes that involve re-compiling the kernel).
Rhythmbox can see my Sansa Clip+ but not music on it. When you have a look at the Sync options the Music, Podcast etc are all empty but it also shows Other !.2 gb which must be my mp3 files. How can I get them into the Music file and to show up in Rhythmbox.
i have downloaded a game called YSFlight but there is no sound on it. I previously played this game on Windows so i know it does have sound. i HAVE installed "YSFlight for Linux" so i know that isn't the problem, and i have also checked all of the sound settings. Every other 'sound' that is with Ubuntu Linux works fine (music, video, error/notifications).
I am using Ubuntu Linux 10.10 with a Dell Inspiron 1525 which previously had Windows Vista Basic 32 bit. I have never had a sound problem with this laptop. Does anyone have any ideas of what is wrong? I am currently running Ubuntu Linux via a disk (the "Try It" option), to test programs that i like, and this is where i found the problem *
I just downloaded the game Braid for Linux as part of the Humble Indie Bundle #2, but the main two problems I have with it are that it lags noticeably on my fairly new computer [HP Pavillion dv7], and there is no sound at all. I have the speakers turned up to maximum volume, but I still don't hear anything. I am running Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit.
