Musescore will not play any sound.

• Jan 22, 2020 - 01:38

So this has been happening since last night after I started a score. Musescore has not been playing any sound, however when I export the song to .wav it will then play music. I have tried resetting the program and going into Edit > Preferences > I/0 to reset audio and Midi devices to no avail. I am using Musescore 3.0.1 on Linux. If anyone knows a way to solve this issue it would be greatly appreciated, thank you.


That's a pretty old version, first I'd recommend getting the latest (3.3.4 as of today, soon to be 3.4 though). Current versions are always available from this site as an AppImage and that's the recommended installation on most Linux distributions.

If updating doesn't fix it, try the other suggestions you see in
