Psychonauts fails to start on Ubuntu 12.04 x64 with the error

SDL_OpenAudio failed: No available audio device

What do I need to do to start the game?

The Psychonauts port to Linux is only released in 32bit and requires that some sound libraries are installed.

Open a terminal, or if you wish look for the package in the Ubuntu Software Center, and install libpulse0:i386

sudo apt-get install libpulse0:i386

After you have done so the game will start normally and the sound will be working.
