Tahrpup, latest updates installed.

Just updated to Fx 52 and of course there's no sound (system woof woof sound test's OK).
Could anyone explain how to get pulseaudio up and running, supposedly it's installed, as are a number of other pulseaudio dependencies I installed to try to get things going.

Any, preferably simple solution to avoid dumping Firefox, would be appreciated.
I tire of Mozilla's idiocy.


Thanks in advance,

Hope I'm in the right forum section now.

Bud.

Bud, what's the exact version? Any issues switching over to the latest ESR?

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1247056

Ah >> No ALSA support after upgrade to 52?

Wouldn't know, I only use Fx Release and Beta versions.
Like advance warning of what the next 'downgrade' will bring.
To me the ESR's the DMW, dead man walking, prolong the agony version.

Is there a more recent Puppy with Pulseaudio where this Fx problem won't happen ?

Thanks,

Saw that at Bugzilla, as a last resort maybe worth a try.

According to its README, the default "make install" procedure looks fine.

Thanks, but that's just a band aid, does it even work with Puppy?
I'd like to know how to install the correct Pulseaudio version and what ever dependencies are needed to maybe make it work.
The one I have installed is 4.something, surely others are having this problem?

I was gonna post about this. once I updated I lost sound. I struggled with the right setup in xenial but so far, I think i got everything working fine. At first it was sound in one browser and not the other.

I managed to get everything to play fair for once, so I'm content for now.

I didn't know about the apulse v0.1.8 at the time. I think I ended up with
pulseaudio-4.0-tahr-i686 that I found on the forum and papprefs_0.9.10-2 from the PPM.

loaded the basic command (pulseaudio) at boot, messed with the preferences and managed to get all of my sound to play .

I only use
Firefox
Iron
palemoon
spotify

They all seem to work with Retrovol.

at first getting sound on firefox killed sound for everything else.
I basically "wung" it, hoping to not screw everything up. it's probably an accidental bandaid fix, as noted but seems to function without problem so far.

I think you'll find it does work with Puppy and I wouldn't describe it as a band aid. It takes the output from the program (browser in this case) which is looking for pulseaudio and it interfaces it with alsa so the sound emerges in the normal way. We have been using it with Skype for some time now so I don't see why it shouldn't work with Firefox.

But if you prefer, you can install pulseaudio via PPM or compile from source. I did this in the past with Skype but ended up thinking that apulse is a better solution.

Subject description: works in slacko 14.2 and xenialpup
 

pulseaudio-4.0-tahr606-i386.pet:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9iMb4UZBeFkOHlYWnlaTTZ6YlU/view?usp=sharing

The above package starts the pulseaudio daemon in tahr 6.0.6, in slacko 14.2 beta and xenialpup beta for me. Report testing. I remember:

Code:
pulseaudio --start


starts the daemon.

Code:
pulseaudio --kill


stops the daemon.

Later: I have tested working firefox 52.0 in xenialpup 7.0.8.1 with my pulseaudio. I played a youtube video with pulseaudio sound. Confirmed no audio without pulseaudio.

Quick test of Firefox ESR 52.0 in Dpup Wheezy
ESR version is now at 52.0 and the main release is the same version number 52.0

Looks like the ESR version (official build) now requires GTK-3
Wheezy has libgtk-3 and a couple of themes so no problem.

Tried playing a youtube video - no sound.

Installed the apulse-0.1.8 libraries into /usr/lib
They can be stripped if the build process has not done this.
These overwrite runtime lib symlinks with the apulse code.

Started Firefox ESR again and went to youtube
Sound played normally.

Now Oscar, is this a band-aid or a Very HappyWink splint?
