Linux Mint GZDOOM no sound

Postby Matilda Sundlehotch » Thu Mar 14, 2019 2:14 am

Hi, I am somewhat new to linux and I have installed GZDOOM v3.7.2 ubuntu, modern 64 bit to my Linux Mint 19 computer and while the game plays as intended I have no sound what so ever, also while messing around with the sound options in the MIDI DEVICE option I found that some options would output a "could not load" and "could not open MIDI out device. I am sure this has something to do with me missing a library but I don't know how to install it, please help.

Try installing the "openal" or "libopenal" (most likely the latter) package.

The package should have requested that package from your package manager and gotten it to automatically install.
