• No sound in wine pipelight (Cinnamon)


    okay so I was able to install antergos onto my system without issue and decided to use cinnamon as my de.
    Now all seems okay but after intalling piplelight I cannot play any sound in it.
    It uses alsa yes but I cannot see the audio output in pavucontrols nor does it seem to work.
    I kind of need it to as I would like to watch netflix on my desktop, I got firefox and user asgent overrider so I am able to see the videos I just cant hear them.

    Edit: nevermind figured it out, I needed to install lib32-libpulse to get it working, it did not come as a dependency for some reason (dont know why, very odd)
    But keep this topic around as it may help someone else with simular issues.

    I think it’s convenient that you have installed pulseaudio-alsa and alsa-utils.

    sudo pacman -S pulseaudio-alsa alsa-utils
    

    To install lib32-libpulse and lib32-alsa-plugins if you run a x86_64 system and want to have sound for 32-bit multilib programs like Wine, Skype and Steam.

     \# pacman -S lib32-libpulse lib32-alsa-plugins
    

    Best Regards,

    Héctor.
