Has anyone had the audio through the headphone connector working with the new Debian wheezy with Scratch?

When I run a Python game a new window comes up asking what audio I want but this does not happen with Scratch. That said all I get through the audio on the python games is some noise but with scratch I do not even get that. With various mods recommended in the forum I got audio working on with the April release.

Yes I had it working with Python games, I added the little bit to the bash script to switch the sound without resorting to the command line. If I remember correctly only the jewel swapping game has sound, the others are silent. You can look at the script that runs python games and you will see what commands are used to switch the sound.

Different programs have different ways to switch the sound output, e.g. for OMXPlayer you have to specify the output in the command and it takes no notice of the command in the python-games switch. Did you have HDMI sound working for Scratch in the Debian Squeeze release, there is a report of it not working in Squeezy here

I went back to an older thread [see link below] asking the same question for the April Squeeze release and making this mod on wheezy gets the audio working through the audio jack, I do not have anyway of testing the HDMI port
