    Hello all,

    I am running the vSynth banana, and I am getting no sound. I’ve been experimenting with sound today and despite my efforts, I cannot get any audio to play.

    Has anyone here had the same experience or fixed it? Does anyone know the dependancies of audio on Linux with Monkey2?

    I am running Linux Mint 17.3 btw.

    From command line go to monkey2/bananas/spacechimps/assets and

    aplay -vv bang.wav

    This works for me on a peppermint vbox mac session (as does vsynth).

    The most common one in my experience is the default port is wrong so I suggest start checking output of all jacks on your computer.

    My Pi defaulted to digital on hdmi so that was pretty nuts to find.

    According to SDL2 module file SDL_config_linux.h monkey2 is actually using Pulse audio on linux not ALSA.



    Audio is working fine here on a vanilla Ubuntu 16.04 64 bit install



    Simon: thanks, that was the problem… I am going to set my default cards like described on that page, because this is changing too often. Or I will disable the onboard sound card.  I have the same problem sometimes with games I play through Steam.

    Again, thanks all!
