When I first ran Spotify through Wine after just having had installed the new Ubuntu Karmic I immediately noticed that the sound from Spotify wasn’t the best, really. Actually, I’m being a bit too kind here. The sound was horrible! It sounded like the audio wasn’t decrypted or something like that since all I heard was a lot of noise.
Luckily, there is a solution to this.
- Make sure the package “wine1.2″ is installed:
sudo apt-get install wine1.2
- Type winecfg in terminal, go into the Audio
tab and change the following as below:
Sound Drivers: Check both OSS and ALSA
Hardware Acceleration: Full
Default Sample Rate: 44100
Default Bits Per Sample: 16
