aisleriot sound

Postby Alc-Stu » Sun Oct 28, 2012 11:36 pm

On installing 64-bit Mint 13 XFCE or Cinnamon in latest VirtualBox under W7-64 bit, I find that the gnome game 'aisleriot' has no sound. I enjoyed the sound under the version in Mint 9. Is there a way to get sound to work with this newer version, or, if not, to revert to the earlier version under Mint 9? Sound is working in pysolfc.

I haven't noticed sound in aisleriot; when does it make sounds?

Have you clicked the Sound option in the menu?

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install gnome-cards-data
will give you more card themes as well as sounds. Check for the directories in /usr/share/aisleriot.

Sounds are made when placing cards as well as a round of applause when finished.

This is a rather late addition to this thread brought about by the fresh installation of LinuxMint 14 Nadia.

System sound effects other than login were not active and the installation of "aisleriot" had no sound option.

I installed gnome-cards-data in order to get extra card themes but the sound option was still missing. I then installed Ubuntu Tweak 0.8.2 and activated "Event Sounds", "Login Sound" and "Input Feedback Sounds" with the LinuxMint theme.
You can get the .deb file of ubuntu-tweak here:

Now I have a working Sound option in the Control tab in aisleriot.

Tnx, kyphi, your post is helpful. I simply avoided versions which wouldn't allow full use of sounds, and figured that the game didn't have the menuitem if system sounds were not available for some reason. I would like to set the sound to bark if an illegal move is made in the game as I can in mint 13 mate.
