i do have problems with the sound output in pd. i'm using ubuntu 12.04 and pd 0.43.4 .
it did cost me a lot of time installung the programm cause of ubuntu 12.04 - finally i did it, but have no output sound, when i test it with an own patch or the "Media->test audio..."-testing-patch.
when i click on media->preferences->audio settings... i cant choose neither an input nor an output device. when i start puredata in the terminal with: "pd -listdev" i get the text file in the pd-Main-window:
no audio input devices found
no audio output devices found
API number 2
no midi input devices found
no midi output devices found
i tried enter the pd path in "media->preferences->path", so the prog searches after libraries or something for the audio devs...dunno....helped nothing
in an older pd version i set the audio preferences to ALSA and i got sound. but this choice i dont have in this version, neither works in terminal: "pd -alsa".
i do have sound in all other programs (if sb thinks its a general sound card problem..).
unfortunately i dont have any informations to my sound card. its an old acer laptop (1694WLMi). not originally mine....
i dont find any help in the internet for this case. not in this forum, too.
any help would be very nice!!
thank you in advance!!
