DESKTOP MODE AUDIO NOT WORKING (4.2 FULL OrangePi PC) - Roy - 11-07-2018

OrangePi PC
RetrorangePi 4.2 FULL version
I found out that the audio doesn't work when I am using the Desktop mode (in Emulationstation it works).

I tried opening some youtube videos on Chromium, no audio.

I checked the volume mixer, and it actually shows the audio "bars", moving according to the music or the video I am watching, but I still get no sound.

The Opi PC is connected via HDMI, using the same cable that I always used with no problems, on every single one of my systems.

Is there an option I should edit to actually get sound working in Desktop mode?

Thanks

It's probably the lack of pulseaudio
Try from terminal inside Desktop
"/usr/bin/pulseaudio &"

Then right click on the volume icon and switch to sndhdmi, disable audiocodec
Anyway it needs to be sorted out, it breaks Alsa sound if you return to ES afterwards

I will wait for a working fix then, thank you as always!
