Hi there fellow humanz!
Greetings out of the Shutdown in Germany.
Looking Glass finally behaves as it should for me but I can’t get sound to run using the two options on the Looking Glass Website.
I have a feeling that some tutorials for Scream on Looking Glass may be out of date. Is there anything newer out there? (I couldn’t find anything with Scream 3.6 for instance)
On top of that trying to follow the guide as best as possible leaves me with a broken Looking Glass if I add the Scream IVSHMEM device to the XML. I suspect this might be Scream highjacking the “lane” (can’t think of the correct term) that Looking Glass is supposed to use.
As soon as I remove the device again Looking Glass finds the Server again.
Any tips? Maybe I missed a step?
I am using qemu 5.1 (I might be wrong on that though as I compiled it from scratch I think maybe it’s older as well) with a Linux Mint 20 installation on a 5.9.1 kernel. I am also administering the VMs with Virt-Manager.
I’ve used Scream some time ago in Manjaro, because audio through spice wasnt working for me. But then i was fixed after one of updates so I stopped using scream. However I still have setup for that in my host and VM. So maybe this will help:
In guest you have to tell Scream not to use IVSHMEM:
Dont_UseIVSHMEM = DWORD(0x2)
In host to start service automatically, you have to make systemd user level service. Create file like that, if you use pulseaudio:
