The latest stable Wine (1.0.1) wouldn’t play audio properly (Dune 2000 had problems), so I figured the same would happen with foobar. I attempted to install WinePulse 1.1.31 (Neil), but no programs would start. I then found a newer repository, WinePulse 1.1.39 (Eric), installed it. Same deal as with 1.1.31. Looking for a solution today, I came across this thread.
Just run in terminal:
sudo ln -s /usr/local/bin/wine-pthread /usr/bin/wine-pthread
WinePulse 1.1.39 now works for me (I recommend Eric’s PPA over Neil’s as it is more recent). Hope this helps!
