I am using Ubuntu 13.04...having ALSA sound problems with Python.
- using aplay, I can play a *.wav from the command line - works fine
- other apps using sound card - work fine
- I am using Python 2.7; I have installed several Python alsa packages.... but not working for me
Here is what I currently have, regarding ALSA:
sudo dpkg --get-selections | grep alsa alsa-base install alsa-utils install bluez-alsa:i386 install gnome-alsamixer install gstreamer0.10-alsa:i386 install gstreamer1.0-alsa:i386 install python-alsaaudio install python-pyalsa install
I could send along lots of others info but not sure relevant.
If you could make a few suggestions of things to check, I will get busy...
Not working -> 1) python gives no errors, plays the file, I hear no sound. 2) from the Desktop, go to Sound, Test -> works fine 3) from the command line, use aplay + way file, works fine
Conclusion: Python2.7 + Ubuntu + ALSA -> does not work -> does not play the WAV sound file correctly -> I hear nothing
