I installed transcriber from the ubuntu repositories the version is listed as 1.5.1.1-3

I am trying to use this program on Ubuntu 9.10, and when attempting to play the audio file (standard mp3 format) I get the error message: 'could not gain access to /dev/sound/dsp for writing'

All other features I have tried so far work ok, and my sound works fine for all other applications I have used, eg movie player and rhythm box etc.

    I too have the same problem:
    here is my log:
    Could not gain access to /dev/sound/dsp for writing.

    Hi,
