View Full Version : Evince is using /dev/dsp for no apparent reason

Hello,

Every time I open Evince I find I cannot play any audio. Using lsof, I get this:

$ /usr/sbin/lsof /dev/dsp
COMMAND PID USER FD TYPE DEVICE SIZE NODE NAME
evince 4667 fibonacci 36u CHR 14,3 4029 /dev/dsp
$
Evince is using /dev/dsp, and thus preventing other programs from using it unless Evince is closed and restarted. Strange thing is, Evince is not playing any sounds at all - so there's no reason for it to use /dev/dsp.

Any ideas on what can I do about it?

Thanks in advance,
