Bug#481046: muine: could not open audio device for playback
severity 481046 normal
aha, I think I've figured this out.
I have a .asoundrc which specifies some LADSPA stuff
including a non-existent plugin (attached)
aplay also complains and fails to play anything:
11:05:09$ aplay out.wav
ALSA lib pcm_ladspa.c:1502:(snd_pcm_ladspa_add_plugin) Unable to find or load plugin 'tap_bs2b' ID 0, path '/usr/lib/ladspa'
aplay: main:564: audio open error: No such file or directory
however totem-xine, totem-gstreamer, the flash plugin,
amarok, rhythmbox and audacity all work ok.
I'm not sure why they do and muine/aplay do not (as appose
to just warning) - I think this bug should be re-purposed
as "fail more gracefully or more informatively", and it
might belong against alsa rather than muine (I'm not sure).
Thanks for your help: I hope you don't mind me parking the
bug here until I investigate further!
