Originally posted by t.jp Linux:Originally posted by Linux Junior s2 Camila:t.jp do you also have to open Steam via Terminal? No I use Arch Linux with KDE 4.10 and made pulseaudio simply my default sound server. Arch Linux installs everything without modification. Seems like openSUSE doesn't roll out standard KDE. You can always let Linux set the SDL_AUDIODRIVER variable on start up automatically.
Originally posted by Squerator:I thanged the Steam shortcut in the menu to "export SDL_AUDIODRIVER=alsa && steam". This works but I have to change a shortcut for each game every time I install a new game. Also you have to uninstall jack package - there is no sound when jack is installed!
