Get Spotify working with PulseAudio on Ubuntu Linux

published Feb 09, 2010 05:36   by admin ( last modified Feb 09, 2010 05:36 )

I had problems getting Spotify to work under Ubuntu and Wine, with a Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000 headset. The sound chopped 2-3 times per second.

Using OSS and normal Wine worked fine with the internal sound card of the laptop, but not with the USB headset.

I found this discussion thread and tried different remedies. The one that worked was Neil Wilson's fork of Wine, WinePulse, with support for PulseAudio.

You can update your system with unsupported packages from this untrusted PPA by adding ppa:neil-aldur/ppa to your system's Software Sources. Not using Ubuntu 9.10 (karmic)?
