Steam for Linux

Steam for Linux

[Solution] Got no in-game sound? See here.
If you dont have sound because of any problems with pulseaudio you should try to run STEAM setting SDL enivronment variable.


This should force SDL library to use alsa driver.

If this isnt working, you can also try with pulseaudio:

SDL_AUDIODRIVER=pulseaudio steam

And finally if you have issues with pulseaudio blocking alsa sound you should disable pulseaudio integration in alsa:

sudo su # or just su (depends on OS you are using)
echo "" > /usr/share/alsa/alsa.conf.d/50-pulseaudio.conf
echo "" > /usr/share/alsa/alsa.conf.d/51-pulseaudio-probe.conf

Thanks, had mistakenly set SDL_AUDIODRIVER to just pulse instead of pulseaudio. HL sound works fine now! Odd that the music worked without it though.
