siggen not working out of the box

Bug #865373 reported by Pander on 2011-10-03
This bug affects 7 people
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
siggen (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

The applications in the siggen package will only work if they are run via aoss . Otherwise the application will exit with the following error:
  No such file or directory : /dev/dsp
Perhaps the package should take care and install proper shell scripts that run it with aoss

Pending the resolution of this bug, you can use the command "play-n synth".

play -n works fine for generating tones, but it is not interactive so I can't adjust the frequency on the fly.

The keyword aoss mentioned above lead to the following workaround:
> sudo aptitude install alsa-oss
> aoss siggen
