Nothing on menu as on server?

I wanted to say you do a /snd_restart on server but I think that will not change anything if it's on all the game from the menu

there might be some help in this thread  
 

also here i found this   https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Wolfenstein:_Enemy_Territory#Troubleshooting
 

No Sound

Enemy Territory was developed during a time when OSS was still the 'official' Linux's sound system but was superseded by ALSA. As a result, Enemy Territory might not be able to emit sound.

This problem can be solved by enabling the multilib repository, installing the multilib-devel group, and finally installing et-sdl-sound.

Once et-sdl-sound is installed, you can launch the game using the following command:

$ enemy-territory.sdl

Sound on Linux has always been an issue. I had it years ago when I first installed on Ubuntu. There IS a fix for it, but I have to look for it - which I will after I get my kids up and fed and have more time

Everything we wrote is not helping. I already remembered that you need to fit the driver. There are a lot of Linux Setters. And linux is not a system for gaming but for other purposes - for example, shopping on the Internet. If you want to play without problems, choose windows.

 

Tested

It's useless. You have to try to install the driver one that will work - mediocre success. Additionally, uninstall the previous driver and reset the computer.

 

PS. On virtual systems, games are unlikely to start or run properly.

Here is the solution for Arch Linux - which is what I run (I don't play ET on there) and it may work or help with Ubuntu based Distros

 

https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=36516

 

This is the Ubuntu fix I DID use when I ran it on Ubuntu all those years ago

Hi Aidess24,

 

If you still want to run it on Linux I'd be happy to help you get 2.60b or ETLeagcy running.

 

For 2.60b you'll need to install some 32-bit libraries and use a launcher script that fixes the sound system hooks.

 

For ETLegacy it will either work out of the box or just need some OS/game setting changes depending on your OS version.

First, which os?  >>uname -a

I stopped running Ubuntu because of the way it decrepitated the ALSA drivers - no warning. I have some info on my site but that would reveal my identity. 

 

Second, some of the sound drivers are copyrighted and the only way around them is to make a custom kernel. This used to be a large learning curve but I suspect it is much easier now. Look up >> make world.

 

Third, running games on Linux is for those a little more knowledgeable. It doesn't mean you can't do it. It just means you might have to understand the OS a whole lot better than the pre-packaged Microsoft solution some of us are used to.

 

I'm sorry I didn't give a direct (binary) answer but your question has lots of variables that must be answered before we can give you the answer.

EtT 2.6b is complex on Linux. 

 

You need to install 32 bit architecture, associated libraries and additional packages to get the game to run. 

 

Finally, you need to use the et-sdl-sound fix to get sound working. 

 

It's easier to use ET Legacy. Add 32 bit support and install the 32 bit version. 

 

If you want to play on ETPro and PB enabled servers, if you can advise your distro we might be able to advise you what terminal commands to run to get everything working. 

 

I managed to get ET running just fine on Debian, Mint and Ubuntu running a small handful of terminal commands.
