Fixing "no sound" bug in linux

Post by obituary on Sun Nov 04, 2012 12:27 pm

I was having trouble getting sound to work in ubuntu-12.04. I googled and tried many things until I found one that worked. The link is here:

http://fearless-assassins.com/tutorials/article/288-no-sound-in-enemy-territory-ubuntudebianmint/

Follow this and you should be fine. It works with the newest versions of linux, unlike the old fixes that no longer work to fix the no sound in Wolf ET bug.

So you switched to Ubuntu? We'll make a geek out of you yet. ;-)

Does it matter where I store the ets file? The tutorial says to create the file in home/folder...do I create it in home, or further down in my .etwolf folder?
 
Thanks,

I put mine in the /home/myname/.etwolf folder.

That was my first choice, too. And you just copied and pasted the two-line script shared in the tutorial link, right?

Did you unzip the file located at this link: http://nullkey.kapsi...et-sdl-sound.gz and put it into your .etwolf folder as well?

I would kind of like to have audio so I can hear my glorious intro song.

I didn't like the two-line script, which updates the real script each time you run it.  I preferred to get a version that works and just leave it at that. 

So, I downloaded the file and unzipped it to the .etwolf directory.  Now I just execute et-sdl-sound when I want to play...

cd ; cd .etwolf
./et-sdl-sound

The et sound problems stem from the fact that the sound system quake3 was designed for is long gone from Linux.

So on new installs I activate the OSS emulation modules in ALSA And PulseAudio then ensure the proper /dev/dsp devices activate. 

You should have been around when Teamspeak2 and et were used together with ALSA. Both those programs are designed for OSS and a real pain getting ALSA to do both at the same time. 
That is precisely why all my Linux systems have a SoundBlaster Audigy card installed.
