Wine and Pulseaudio Support --------------------------- Currently wine does not have native support for pulseaudio. However, some patches exist to make wine use a native pulseaudio backend (see http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10495). These have been included into the fedora wine package. If you have problems please do _not_ report them to the wine project. Other ways to get wine working with pulseaudio are described below: ALSA ---- To achieve sound output via the wine alsa driver you need to add a pulseaudio alsa device to the alsa configuration and activate it in wine. See http://www.pulseaudio.org/wiki/PerfectSetup#ALSAApplications on how to do this. For this alsa-plugins-pulseaudio.i386 should be installed. Esound ------ If the pulseaudio-esound-compat package is installed selecting the EsounD driver in wine should enable sound via pulseaudio. OSS --- To use the oss driver of wine copy the following script to ~/bin/wine and make sure that ~/bin is in your path with a higher priority then /usr/bin. The script will call the pulseaudio dsp wrapper padsp. #!/bin/sh if [ -x /usr/lib*/alsa-lib/libasound_module_pcm_pulse.so ] && [ -x "/usr/bin/padsp" ] ; then echo "Running padsp as pulseaudio wrapper for wine" exec padsp -n Wine -- /usr/bin/wine "$@" else exec /usr/bin/wine "$@" fi For more information on a good pulseaudio setup see: http://www.pulseaudio.org/wiki/PerfectSetup If you think you have found a bug related to this take a look at the bug reporting procedure at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/AndreasBierfert/Wine.
