I’m a backer, and just got around to installing Rubicon so the kids and I can play. I run linux, and there’s no sound. Is there a list of libs required to have sound work?

Blitzmax seems to have some problems with sound on the more recent versions of Ubuntu (is the distribution you’re using?). I’m looking through the forums and it doesn’t looks like there’s a simple fix for this problem, though here are a couple of potentially enlightening links:

And this looks like the best way to make sure you have all the lib dependencies:

Hope this helps ~

 

EDIT: The fix is:

sudo apt-get install libopenal1:i386 libopenal-dev:i386

Other linux distros need to modify that command accordingly (https://www.codeweavers.com/support/wiki/diag/missinglibopenal has a good reference sheet). You may need to reboot following the install.
