    How: Get Wine Sound with all other application using sound

    I found this method at a wiki explaining configuration of PulseAudio.

    Problem:
    Wine/PulseAudio don't love to work with each other. So if you first start a MusicPlayer and then a application in Wine, you will not get sound in Wine.

    End Product:
    I cannot play Counter-Strike with Rythmbox playing my favorite tunes.

    Solution:

    1. Change your sound device to OSS in the winecfg's Audio Tab
    2. Launch the application needed with 'padsp' in prefix

    Eg. If you want to launch program WinAmp, use

    Code:
    padsp wine winamp.exe
    If it works, reply back. This seemed to fix problem for me.

    Downside: Not all applications work well with the OSS plugin, and in that case we are left with no choice

    Pulseaudio seems to be weird. For some, myself included, it's working fine. I can play music in other apps while sound is also workign fine in wine. For others...well Wine and Pulse just don't play nice together :/
