How to get sound on multiple programs.

Postby Old Marcus on Sun Jul 27, 2008 1:30 pm

I know this is pretty common, but after some searching, I haven't found anything that would work for mint, unless ubuntu solutions work, in which case ignore me.

I basically want sound to work on two or more programs when they are running at the same time. How do I do this?

'apt install' can be used on Linux Mint as a shortcut for 'sudo apt-get install'. 'apt x' can be used for various other apt commands as well.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Ubuntu solutions work mostly
Why on earth do you want sound on two programs simultaneously?
Am I missing something?

One of the things is the game called N, it has no music, but has sound effects. I want background music with it, so I start up amarok, but it gets no sound.
