No sound, only PulseAudio showing in software

When I try sound in my PlayOnLinux software, it looks like its playing but no sound coming out the speakers.

I only have PulseAudio showing from the available Output in the program.

When I uninstall PlayOnLinux and only install WINE 2.0, and open the Windows software, I do have sound using either Built-in Audio Analog Stereo or even PulseAudio.

How can I  make sound work with PlayOnLinux too?

Using Ubuntu 16.04 64-bit with the installer of PlayOnLinux (not sure if that's 32- or 64-bit).

NOTE: I didnt install anything WINE or WINE-related before installing PlayOnLinux. Maybe that's the issue, though PlayOnLinux worked straight after installing.

32-bits installation of the Virtual Drive during install of Manual Installation.

Linux version: Ubuntu 16.04 LTS 64-bit

Version de POL: PlayOnLinux_4.2.10.deb

Full computer specs: CPU: Intel Pentium Dual E2160 @ 1.80GHz x2, RAM: 3GB, Graphics: Galium 0.4 on NV98

I've re-installed PlayOnLinux through the Ubuntu Software internal app, during installation chosen for Wine 32-bit virtual drive, Configure Wine, set default to Windows 7, and Audio and WINE Explorer both work.

I assume this is because I manually installed WINE 2.0 before?

Found the issue regarding WINE Explorer + Audio not working properly…

When u just install PlayOnLinux, it will install Wine 1.6.2 by default.

This one has these issues with my Windows-program.


When u install WINE 2.0 first (or after, doesn’t rly matter) it will work straight out-of-the-box =)

No issues as shown above.


Here’s how to install WINE 2.0, by opening Terminal:

I picked the Stable version.


During PlayOnLinux installation, I made sure to click Configure WINE, to set it to Windows 7 as default.
