Wine on Arch: sound issues

Post by kiki » Thu Oct 03, 2019 1:57 pm

hello, i'm pretty new to both arch linux and wine and trying to dive in. Heads first into cold water so to speak. I'm a bit overwhelmed by the wiki and all the options of both wine and linux, but i'll try my best.

now to my issue: my wine got no sound. i've read that for some linux distros, there's a package that can be installed? is that one needed for my version aswell? is there any way to do so install it? if so: how?

I'm sorry for asking what might seem trivial maybe, i'm just kinda lost @.@

Ensure you have the basic 32-bit and 64-bit pulseaudio, and alsa bridge, libraries installed.

E.g. on my laptop:

Code: Select all

pacman -Qs pulse
