I installed Gnu Backgammon 0.90.0, on Kubuntu 12.04. The graphics work perfectly, but there is no sound, even though enabled in the settings.

Is this a settings or compatibility issue or is it a bug I should file?

How to fix this?

GnuBG 0.90 on Kubuntu 12.04 sounds perfectly OK here... –  izx Aug 22 '12 at 7:07

The solution in this case was to add a command line for the application to play sound. The command line is added in the settings in the sound tab. I added aplay as a command. Of course you have to make sure the sound option is enabled too:
