pulseaudio 13.0 and Slimjet = no sound again

Post by Texstar. » Mon Sep 16, 2019 6:04 am

I just updated to pulseaudio official release of 13. 0 and again sound is gone from slimjet.

PCLinuxOS 2019
Kernel 5.2.15
Pulseaudio 13.0
Slimjet 24.0.2.0 (64bit)

I can bypass pulseaudio and use alsa directly with the following command but this is more of a work around than a real solution.
pasuspender -- /usr/bin/flashpeak-slimjet --alsa-output-device=hw:1,0

Does anyone know why sound is such an issue with this browser? I have zero sound problems using other browsers based on Google Chrome code but prefer to use Slimjet.

I thought there would be a real fix by now, but doesn't look like it will ever happen. Last I knew (months ago), they were looking into the issue, but nothing ever came of it. I decided not to deal with the hassle of it any more & have since moved to Chromium.

Slimjet was heavily promoted on my website forum as an alternative to Google Chrome and now I look like a fool because of this no sound issue that continues to persist. Slimjet is making me look bad.

At the very least, Slimjet devs should tell us why the problem persists. Is it still being worked on or not?
