Eschalon Sound in Linux - No OpenAl

Postby tecknode » June 1st, 2013, 11:37 am

UPDATE: I am running Ubuntu 13.04

I am using the "padsp" to launch Eschalon 1 & 2, BUT the sound is choppy after I upgraded from Ubuntu 12.10, and Eschalon shows [FreeAudio] :cry:

Also, why can I NOT get the audio to show [OpenAl] as I did in Ubuntu 9 :?:

Is there a launch prefix I can use to get Eschalon to run OpenAl :|

If Book 2 operates the same was as Book 3, what you need to have OpenAL support in the engine is the 32-bit library libopenal.so. The package on Ubuntu is apparently "libopenal1:i386", though I don't run Ubuntu myself so I can't verify. Also make sure that the actual file "libopenal.so" is present, not just "libopenal.so.1". If you only have the .1, you can make a symlink yourself. Hope that helps!

Oh, ha - not only do I see that you already got an answer in another topic, I also see that your post was over a year old. Well! Hurray for that. :)
