    Thankfully Kubuntu doesn't use it. There's some pulseaudio package installed, but It's not running.

    Default Solution

    Problem solved!

    It was this bug:
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...rs/+bug/454879
    It's an SDL audio issue, and virtually all linux OpenGL games are SDL-based.

    So the solution was to remove libsdl1.2debian-alsa and install libsdl1.2debian-pulseaudio.
    Go figure right?
