  1. Hi, I installed it exactly as you mentionned and it works like a charm, great, except that I can’t get no sound to work, when I turn on music or sounds in “preferences” it’s turned off as soon as I closes the preferences menu : do I need to install something else ? is it a known issue with the ubuntu version ?
