How to make Airfoil working on ubuntu 10.10 (64 bits)

When starting the airfoilspeakes program and trying to connect with airfoil from a mac the airfoilspeakers crashed.

The *.dll files comming with the package (*.de or *.tar.gz) should be replaced with the libraries from http://kevin.colyar.net/2009/12/fixin...

Thanks Kevin !!!

If you are replacing the libraries in /usr/lib/airfoilspeakers you should do it as root.

The libraries to replace are:

mAlac.dll
Mono.Zeroconf.dll
Mono.Zeroconf.Providers.Avahi.dll
RAAirTunesServer.dll

Solution tested on ubuntu 10.10 running in 64 bits.

Good luck ;)

  • Found this fix before on Kevin's blog. To be fair, it DOES fix the crash-on-connect.
    For some reason though, it appears to connect but never plays any sound out of any of the interfaces (HDMI audio, surround sound, nothing).
    Driving me a bit mental at this point honestly, as the ALSA speaker-test utility seems to work fine, PulseAudio sees the ALSA Mono plug-in (and is maxed on volume in the GUI mixer), and so on.

    Starting with 'DISPLAY=:0 airfoilspeakers --gui=false --debug 4 > logfile_test.txt' and using a tail -f logfile_test.txt shows that it's getting sync headers and seems to think it's playing, just isn't actually putting anything out.
    Like I said, maddening.
