I've got my OSX (Mavericks) virtual machine up and running, but am not getting any sound out of it.  Host is Ubuntu x64 (13.04) running VMWare Workstation 10.

 

I do get sound from my Windows 7 VMs, so I know the problem is not with the host or vmware.

 

Here's what I have inside the OSX vmx file relating to sound:

 

sound.present = "TRUE"
sound.virtualDev = "hdaudio"
sound.fileName = "-1"
sound.autodetect = "TRUE"
sound.pciSlotNumber = "33"
 

I have installed vmware tools from the darwin ISO.

 

Am out of ideas so any suggestions are appreciated.

 

EDIT: I tried installing the audio drivers from sourceforge and nothing changed.

I don't know the reason.

 

In my case, it works after I  enable sound device, install VMware tools, and increase sound volume but the host OS is Windows 7 :)

Did you ever get anywhere with this? I am running into the same issue on latest linux mint host, workstation 10, maverick guest. Works abolutely perfectly except for no sound! Tried the latest darwin but no luck :(

For anyone still struggling to get audio working in your OS X guest on a linux host, try this* :
 
1 ) Stop your VM.
 
2 ) Open a terminal window and enter:
 

aplay -L

 
This command will display a list of audio outputs. Identify the one used by your host system (mine is the SPDIF output, iec958:CARD=PCH,DEV=0).
 
3 ) Open the vmx file of your VM in a text editor.
 
    a ) Change sound.fileName to reflect the audio output you identified in step 2:
 
         sound.fileName = "iec958:CARD=PCH,DEV=0"
 
    b ) Change sound.autodetect to false:

         sound.autodetect = "FALSE"
 
4 ) Save the file and restart your VM.

 

Your VM should now have working sound :thumbsup_anim:
 
*After much googling, I found this information burried in the comments on a blog and thought it would be more helpful posted here.

1>The audio driver:

predefined "hdaudio" or with "es1371" (zenith432)?

 

 

2> Using your suggestion for the sound.fileName

The output is very long, I can see these rows...

 

$ aplay -L
null
    Discard all samples (playback) or generate zero samples (capture)
default
    Default ALSA Output (currently PulseAudio Sound Server)
sysdefault:CARD=Intel
    HDA Intel, ALC272X Analog
    Default Audio Device
front:CARD=Intel,DEV=0
    HDA Intel, ALC272X Analog
    Front speakers
surround40:CARD=Intel,DEV=0
    HDA Intel, ALC272X Analog
    4.0 Surround output to Front and Rear speakers
surround41:CARD=Intel,DEV=0
    HDA Intel, ALC272X Analog
    4.1 Surround output to Front, Rear and Subwoofer speakers
surround50:CARD=Intel,DEV=0
    HDA Intel, ALC272X Analog
    5.0 Surround output to Front, Center and Rear speakers
surround51:CARD=Intel,DEV=0
    HDA Intel, ALC272X Analog
    5.1 Surround output to Front, Center, Rear and Subwoofer speakers
surround71:CARD=Intel,DEV=0
    HDA Intel, ALC272X Analog
    7.1 Surround output to Front, Center, Side, Rear and Woofer speakers

 

 

which string to choose?

sysdefault:CARD=Intel

 

if for you is

sound.fileName = "iec958:CARD=PCH,DEV=0"
 

for me should be?

 

a> sound.fileName = "sysdefault:CARD=Intel"

b> sound.fileName = "front:CARD=Intel,DEV=0"

c> or something else?

 

 

thanks

I am using hdaudio which I believe is the default.  As far as which output you should use - it depends how your speakers are connected. If you are using stereo speakers connected to the front analog outputs, try sound.fileName = "front:CARD=Intel,DEV=0". If you are using the rear analog outputs you could try sound.fileName = "sysdefault:CARD=Intel". I don't use the analog outputs so I can't test this :unsure:
