I've been using google music for a while in ubuntu 10.10 without any issues. I just updated to 11.10 thinking most of the bugs from the initial gnome3/unity changes would be ironed out.

Now when I play music in google music no sound is coming out. after the page loads I go into a playlist, click the play button and a spinner appears next the song and play icon I just click stays there, then I click the play button again and the icon next to the song changes to indicate the some is playing, but no sound is coming out and the song progress bar doesn't move it just stays at 0 seconds of the song.

Any help would be appreciated.

If you don't mind using non-free software, apt-getting the flashplugin-nonfree package solved this problem for me:

sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree

Maybe something weird with the flash plugin that ships with Ubuntu?

This didn't resolve the issue. I'm currently running 64-bit 11.10. When I searched for the plug-in it looked like there were only 32 bit versions. I did notice that one of the packages was named flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound and the description looked to fit but when I installed it nothing changed. Again this looks like it's set up to run with the 32-bit version of flash and I'm running 64-bit. – Aglystas Oct 24 '11 at 17:47
