Audio was working fine with Ubuntu 8.04, but 8.10 seems to have broken it.

I can play the test sound in the wine config app with either alsa or oss selected, and I'm using a pulseaudio wrapper round my winecfg and wine mushclient launchers.

Tried both:

padsp wine "C:\Program Files\MUSHclient\MUSHclient.exe"
padsp wine "C:\Program Files\MUSHclient\MUSHclient.exe" /wine

Launching winecfg with:

padsp winecfg

I know pulseaudio allows per-application audio settings, is it possible wine is muted? I have no idea how to check this.

I have made sure that I'm added to the pulseaudio groups in the user and group manager.

If anyone has managed to make this work and has any ideas for things I may not have tweaked, or configs I can check, it would be appreciated.

Do you have anything else using sound at the same time? I was getting odd behavior with Pulseaudio also after an upgrade to 8.10, but changing the default mixer fixed that. Unfortunately I don't have access to what exactly I did -- am at work now -- but I think I just changed it to ALSA or something like that.

OK, I managed to kludge up a solution to this....

Basically, use the UdpSend function in mushclient combined with a perl UDP socket listener in an infinite loop.

Mushclient sends an audio file name
The perl listener catches the file name and forks a system call to play the file

If anyone wants the perl code they can email zexium@googlemail.com
