You're rather sparse on information such as what platform you're running on, whether it's a native or virtual environment and so forth. Do sounds play from other Linux apps?

Oh ok running gnu grc on mint no virtual
have a working copy of fm demod but the bad copy is am demod running through upverter
have plenty of decode -15 db
the Cuban station is stronger than my local 1070 here in Houston
I have tried all the google stuff and gnu stuff too
started out on laptop then moved ssd in to the I-5 with faster processor and got more functionality
that new guy helped me get the gqrx and dsd going on mint
so it just might be a launch order to get sound to work
came a long way in my Linux, at least I can read and kinds understand
I backed out of the public service deal for a while and let the youngsters take the money
we are vital but no iron coming in
but we finally got in NCIC when win 7 died

If you have a .wav file handy you can open a terminal screen and use the 'aplay' command to play the wav file.
Code:
aplay test.wav

You'd need to have a copy of the file "test.wav" in order to be able to play it :)
I'd anticipate you can find something (anything .wav) online and download it, then substitute the actual file name in the command line for aplay.

yeah, I agree but most of my experience is for running live broadcasts and I do not have much recording ability. Especially in Linux.
I did get both a sample of both instances of grc am and fm, but not from the command line. I will work on that tonight.
I will get back in the command I made run and see what I can direct.
The am audio was null, as expected. I can see the noise but it will come out of app.
I also have a incomplete copy of sdr# on this disk. and a good copy of gqrx with excellent audio, but it will not tune under 24 mHz.
I hear ubuntu 20.04 is out

thanks for the mentoring

I do.
gqrx and grc for visualizing and decoding, and op25 for listening to my local p25 system.

Yeah, I started public service monitoring in the early 60' and in earnest in 76' when I got out of the road house and moved into the wrecker.
Any thoughs on this gqrx.git program?

The easiest way to install gqrx is from a pre-built package. On most debian-based systems (such as Ubuntu, Mint, RPi) you can just do the following:
Code:
sudo apt-get install gqrx-sdr
