[Solved] - No Sound in Linux Mint 18?

Post by DeadMeat »

No Intro music or other sound from oOLITE.

System plays all sounds from all other applications fine.

Sound App is set for Stereo HDMI(2) Output and shows Oolite in 'Applications Running Sound' ok.
Yet No Sound heard.
All hardware is working (all other apps play sound fine)

Is there a CONFIG file which needs a tweek?

Thanks in Advance

Version 3.0.7
Kernel: 44077 - generic

Hi, and welcome. Which version of Oolite - 1.84?

Is this a binary downloaded from oolite,org or from your distro's repository? Can you please post your Latest.log after a failed sound run?

Re: No Sound in Linux Mint 18? SOLVED

Post by DeadMeat »

SOLVED: The Synaptic Package Manager in Mint 18/64bit was used to install Oolite.
That function did NOT install the Audio or Doc files.
Clicking those for Installation, the SPM loaded and installed the audio and doc and now I have that Great Music track! Thanks!

Loading from the SPM on 29july2017, version 1.82 (not 1.84) was loaded.
A File Search did not locate a Lastest.log, so I cannot post it.

Thanks for the quick replies and pointing me to the right Linux areas to discover the "fix" above.

now.....Off to the Tutorial!
cheers!

Cool - although 1.84 is preferable and recommended. Available here, if you're interested.

Good advise to install from the website: I still can't locate (or missing) the Docs or AddOns folder from the Synaptic installer (which was an earlier Rev too)

I am about to simulate your case in a VM.
Are you still looking for the Docs and AddOns folder of the Synaptic installer?

You can get it here also.
Even the latest build is available, just read the warning notes.

@Hajimoto
Hi. Could you, please, give some feedback on which binary you downloaded and what did you execute that didn't run?
