HowTo: Fix Jumping/Skipping Sound in Spotify under Wine – Ubuntu Karmic (9.10)

The sound in Spotify was jumping or skipping much like a scratched disk would. After a little investigation I found a couple of ways to fix it with people saying one worked but the other didn’t for them. (Solution 2 worked for me).

Solution 1:

Open terminal and type:

winecfg

Click on the Audio tab along the top and remove ALSA and try OSS as your sound drivers

Solution 2:

gedit ~/.asoundrc

add the following line to the file:
pcm.pulse { type pulse } ctl.pulse { type pulse } pcm.!default { type pulse } ctl.!default { type pulse }

gedit /etc/pulse/daemon.conf

change the following to lines as shown below

default-fragments = 8
default-fragment-size-msec = 5
