xine from gnome menu


I am experiencing something wierd, at least to my brain capacity.

If I start xine from the gnome menu, I don't get any sound. When I start from the terminal, it has sound. In the menu setting, the command is the same, xine.

This is a mystery to me.

Does anybody know what may be going on?

Thanks in advance for educating me!

Welcome to LQ !

It sounds a little odd indead.
I think the problem is probably related to the ESD(Enlighted Sound Daemon), It is the daemon Gnome uses. Kde uses aRts.
I donīt use gnome, but try this:
Play around with the ESD settings, specially disable it, and see what happens.
I once had a sound problem that got solved when i disabled aRts.
Try that and see if it works,
