Linux with audio problem

I am trying to play Fire Emblem Shadows of Valentia but every time a character speak, the game freezes. This problem is fixed on windows, but I can’t play on windows because AMD OpenGL support is bad and the game run really slow. Can somebody help me?

I don’t know how to get log on Linus

  • Screenshot of Issue (include the full Citra window including titlebar):

The log has no info at all, since the game just freezes.

I don’t care about playing with sound, so if there’s a way to make the game playable even without sound, please share with me.

Here’s some issues I found with your log that might help.

  • Enabling Accurate Multiplication is recomended in certain games. If you are experiencing graphical glitches, try enabling this option.

You will most likely need to build yourself with additional packages. You can read more about it here:

I think this game had the same problem as with Pokémon X/Y

So I just builded Citra with the guide, but there is still the audio crash where the game just freezes. What could it be?

Did you install libavcodec-dev & libfdk-aac-dev as the instructions said? :stuck_out_tongue:

Yes, I did. I installed libavcodec-dev and libfdk-aac-dev.
libavcodec-dev is already the newest version (7:3.4.4-0ubuntu0.18.04.1).
libfdk-aac-dev is already the newest version (0.1.5-1).

When I open the citra-qt this shows up
inotify_add_watch("/home/user/.local/share/citra-emu/sdmc/Nintendo 3DS/00000000000000000000000000000000/00000000000000000000000000000000/title/00040002") failed: “No such file or directory”
inotify_add_watch("/home/user/.local/share/citra-emu/nand/00000000000000000000000000000000/title/00040010") failed: “No such file or directory”

And you built from source after those two were installed, correct?

Yes, I installed both than builded Citra using the guide. I builded the release mode, should I build debug?

Hey @tywald I just want to thank you for the help, I did it! I actually had to go for arch linux rather than ubuntu, but when I made the os change I successfully builded citra

The game is working now :smile:
