The version of Wine 1.3.26, provided by default in Ubuntu 11.04 Natty, has a curious issue with Rosetta Stone 3.4.5, the microphone doesn’ t work with Rosetta Stone 3.4.5 .
To resolve this issue I added the Alexandre Montplais’s PPA for winepulse which has a patched version of Wine (1.3.19) that uses Pulseaudio. This patch doesn’t work with pulseaudio in ubuntu 11.04 and rosetta stone 3.4.5 but works well with Alsa checked and Pulseaudio unchecked, let’s get started…
Hardware: IBM Lenovo Thinkpad x61s.
Audio: internal audio 1 output/1 input – Analog stereo duplex
Audio input: internal audio analog Stereo
System Operator: Linux Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal
Rosetta Stone version: 3.4.5
wine version: 1.3.19 (Alexandre Montplaisir patched)
Add Alexandre Montplaisir’ repository with the shell
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:alexandre-montplaisir/ppa && sudo add-apt-repository ppa:/alexandre-montplaisir/winepulse && sudo apt-get update
or adding these strings in /etc/apt/sources.list or adding these strings clicking Add in Synaptic Package Manager -> Settings -> Repositories -> Other Software:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/alexandre-montplaisir/ppa/ubuntu natty main deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/alexandre-montplaisir/ppa/ubuntu natty main deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/alexandre-montplaisir/winepulse/ubuntu natty main deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/alexandre-montplaisir/winepulse/ubuntu natty main
With Synaptic or apt-get in the shell, remove wine 1.3.26 provided by default in ubuntu and install wine 1.3.19, patched by Alexandre Montplaisir.
Run winecfg and in the audio section check ALSA Driver and uncheck PulseAudio Driver.Click on Apply, close the panel and
check the microphone volume with alsamixer.
Now You can see and adjust the microphone in the Setting Preference.
Someone tried with different hardware and doesn’t work, but with someone work fine.
