I use the Binary Version for Linux 64 Bit. I had started the Game installed Sounds and Music Packs. After that, I selected it in The Options Menu. The Sounds are played but there is no Music. I had tried a few Music Packs.

Sounds like you're missing timidity, the external program that's currently required to play midi music under Linux, can you confirm that it's installed?

Can confirm this issue also happen with me on Arch Linux. Music doesn't play no matter what you set on the options or launch parameters. I tried using both fluidsynth and timidity and both work playing OpenMSX's mid files, but not with the game.

Music works on openSUSE Tumbleweed, btw.

We added a new music driver based on Fluidsynth recently, if you're feeling adventurous or confident in building OpenTTD from source yourself, that might make music work better.

The current extmidi driver (which generally calls Timidity) is rather difficult to debug, and personally I wouldn't mind seeing it removed entirely.

Arch Linux here. Works perfectly. Could be missing soundfonts, but it really doesn't seem like that (playing the MIDI files worked for MR4Y, but no sounds in game and I think Ubuntu installs soundfonts with timidity)

Is there any binary for me to test it?
