There is no sound at all.
I just downloaded pioneer-20190203-linux.tar.gz (2019-02-03 · 413.98 MB), extract it and start the "pioneer" in the "release" folder, play a bit but. no sounds at all.
To be sure that it was not from corrupted files from the music or sound folder in "data" I tried each individual ogg and are working fine with VLC or a mouse-hover.

I kept an older version (pioneer-20180203-linux64) for comparison and the sound is working just fine in the game.

My pioneer version (and OS): pioneer-20190203-linux (On Ubuntu-MATE 16.04)

It fails for me too. I've get this error:

Could not open audio: No such audio device

I have installed Arch Linux. Perhaps the problem is that it is compiled on a different computer and can't find sound device. If I compile on my computer this same version from source code, sound works fine. But it's difficult to compile if you don't have experience.

Better you can use the "Flatpak" version. I've tried it and sound works. You can follow this instructions to install Flatpak Pioneer package:

You must follow "setup guide" for Ubuntu. At the bottom of the page there are command line instructions (If Install button doesn't work)

@PatLabGit I assume it's something on your side, SDL version not liking pioneer or something.

I'm not sure how meaningful it is to track this, as it's not clear to me that there's anything on our side we can do.

Anyone more in the know feel free to chime in.
