I am working on WSL(Ubuntu) in windows 10, I need to use portaudio in my project. I did the following:

  • I downloaded pa_stable_v190600_20161030.tgz from portaudio site into my computer
  • Using Ubuntu terminal I ran ./configure and then ran make :



When I went into bin and ran the ./pa_devs, I am getting 0 device.

I doubt that there is an issue with working with audio in WSL. I want to know, how I can overcome this problem.

  • Thats True @AlvinLiang but is it possible to enable audio like given in token2shell.com/howto/x410/… Commented Nov 27, 2019 at 11:31
  • WSL does not support audio, and there are indeed ways of making it work, but those are Windows solutions, which are off-topic here, but on-topic on our sister site superuser.com.
