No sound coming from VM created using gnome-boxes


I have created VMs using gnome-boxes. But, I’m not getting a sound output from the VMs. The sound output from the host machine is working fine.
Please let me know a solution.


Hi, please open Properties of the VM image from Gnome Boxes, then open tab “System”, then click “Edit XML”.

Find part:

<audio id="1" type="none"/>

If type="none", change it to:

<audio id="1" type="spice"/>

Most of the time above configuration works. Please after click Apply button, double check again the config, since sometime it’s not saved and we need to repeat it again.

Tested with:
Gnome Box version 41.1

Edit: specified which one need to edit.
