Hi Robert,

at first glimpse, this looks like an alsa problem to me. Does sound work for 
you in general? Also with alsa (you could e.g. try speaker-test)? Is the 
audio device eventually busy (e.g. occupied by a different program, so that 
trigger can't open it)?

Looking at trigger's code, it'd need some fiddling to also work without sound 
backend, which I guess would be a better fallback than not starting.

Cheers,
     Stefan.

The Gnome Sound Test works fine.
Please look at the screenshot.
But I can't change "Vorgegebene Mixerspur" to "USB Audio". (2nd

After I changed the ~/.trigger/trigger.config file and disable sound.
But the change has no effect.

retitle 527510 trigger should work w.o. sound as well
severity 527510 wishlist
thanks

Hi Robert,

sorry for the delay... 
cloning this bugreport to libasound2, as the errors look like alsa problems to 
me. Alsa maintainers, I hope I'm right with this, if not please give me a 
hint and/or reassing to the correct package, thanks!

Nonetheless, as I already wrote, trigger should really *not* bail out if sound 
is not available. Hence also leaving this as a trigger bug report. I hope 
I'll be able to fix this in trigger's svn soonish, but I can't guarantee if 
I'll find time for it next weekend.

Cheers and thanks four your interest in trigger,
     Stefan.
