[ubuntu] Ubuntu 13.04 Bad Sound In Games

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have Skype installed and the hardware sound test using Pulse Audio works with no distortion. I play games where the launcher command HAS TO BE PREFIXED with "padsp" to get any sound at all. What does "padsp" mean? My games play with choppy sound. NOTE: My Ubuntu laptop had no sound issue when I ran Ubuntu 12.10 with the same hardware. Is there a prefix to force games to use Pulse Audio :confused: I'm thinking since Pulse Audio works with Skype, if I can get games to use it the choppiness would go away. (Hardware)
