Simple question

I have been having problems getting the audio examples to work from the
command line. I can get the examples to execute by clicking on their
respective GUI icons but when I go to do it from the command line I do
not
hear anything coming out of my speakers.

[email protected]:~/gr-build/gnuradio-examples/python/audio> chmod a+x
dial_tone.py
[email protected]:~/gr-build/gnuradio-examples/python/audio> ./dial_tone.py

[1]+ Stopped ./dial_tone.py

I actually had to press Ctrl Z to stop it because it doesn’t do anything
after I press enter. Anyone have suggestions. I am a newbie and trying
to
figure this out. Thanks.

Not sure about your audio problem here, but I think you want to be using
CTRL-C to kill your jobs, not CTRL-Z, which suspends your jobs. See:

The audio problem could be that some other program has the audio
device open exclusively. This could be a “sound daemon” for your
desktop (e.g., esound or arts). If you’ve got those enabled or
running, try killing them.
