Solved: 3 Years, 7 Months, 2 Weeks ago Cannot get sound / audio to work

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 and I cannot get my audio to work (it works fine with anything else that I run). If I choose any sound device except "ALSA Software on Default," the game is completely silent. If I choose "ALSA Software on Default" I get a segmentation fault. My terminal looks like this when I run the Launcher:

Pre-Sort
quadro fx
geforce fx
geforce gt
geforce gts
geforce gt2s
geforce gtx
geforce xpress
geforce
mobile intel(r) series express chipset family
graphics media accelerator
radeon
radeon hd
amd
mesa

The only log file it outputs is "launcher.log" and it looks like this:

When I run other sound options the game will start with no sound, and the log files and terminal show no errors, except that the terminal says this:

X_ChangeProperty: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation) 0x0

I don't think this error has anything to do with the missing sound. I have basically the same issues whether I run the launcher or Amnesia.bin directly. I have searched the forum but have not really found anything that appears to be the same issue I am having. Anyone have any ideas?

The X_ChangeProperty can be ignored.. it's caused by the ATI drivers.. (I see that one myself on my ATI hd 3000)

Can you try using the provided openal library??

go into the game install directory and run this
ln -sf all/libopenal.so.1 libs
