Dimitri thank you for your answer.
I filed an issue on Ask Ubuntu.

So the problem is most likely with UBUNTU SOFTWARE packaging.
You need to file a bug with them.

Hi Dimitri,
I re-installed GNU OCTAVE from UBUNTU SOFTWARE.
The error appears even after the re-installation.
Thank you for your time,
Vera

Is your octave native or from Snap?

Hello,
Here is a minimal example followed by the error report:

##### EXAMPLE ######
clear;
close all;
sca;
InitializePsychSound(1);
nrchannels = 2;
freq = 48000;
beepLengthSecs = 1;
startCue = 0;
waitForDeviceStart = 1;
pahandle = PsychPortAudio('Open', [], 1, 1, freq, nrchannels);
PsychPortAudio('Volume', pahandle, 0.5);
myBeep = MakeBeep(500, beepLengthSecs, freq);
PsychPortAudio('FillBuffer', pahandle, [myBeep; myBeep]);
PsychPortAudio('Start', pahandle, repetitions, startCue, waitForDeviceStart);
PsychPortAudio('Stop', pahandle, 1, 1);
PsychPortAudio('Close', pahandle);
##### END OF EXAMPLE #####

#### ERROR REPORT ####
PTB-INFO: Using PortAudio V19.6.0-devel, revision 396fe4b6699ae929d3a685b3ef8a7e97396139a4

#### END OF ERROR REPORT ####

Additional notes:
- OS: Ubuntu 22.04 jammy,  Kernel: x86_64 Linux 5.19.0-35-generic
- Psychtoolbox-3 for GNU/Linux X11, under GNU/Octave 64-Bit (Version 3.0.19 - Build date: Feb 24 2023).
- after running the example, there in not sound from the speakers and it comes back after exiting OCTAVE.
- this error appeared suddenly without me changing something in the scripts

I think I will uninstall & re-install Psychtoolbox & OCTAVE.

Thank you for your time.

Could you please reduce to a minimal example that reproduces the error? Ideally, without using code from third-party Octave packages.

No but audio is part of Octave.

Why audio fails?

What is psych toolbox? Is that part of Octave?

Hello,
The audio part on Psychtoolbox scripts has suddenly stopped working.
I tried:
1. old scripts of mine that were working 100%
2. a Psychtoolbox tutorial that I found here: https://peterscarfe.com/insertedCode/beepDemoCode.html
3. the command PsychPortAudioTimingTest

I always get the same error (here below is the result from PsychPortAudioTimingTest):
###
PTB-ERROR: Desired audio parameters for device -1 unsupported by audio device: Illegal combination of I/O devices
PTB-ERROR: This could be, e.g., due to an unsupported combination of audio sample rate, audio channel count/allocation, or audio sample format.
PTB-ERROR: On Linux you may be able to use ALSA audio converter plugins to make this work.
Error in function Open:         Usage error
Failed to open PortAudio audio device due to unsupported combination of audio parameters.
error: PsychPortAudio: Usage:

pahandle = PsychPortAudio('Open' [, deviceid][, mode][, reqlatencyclass][, freq][, channels][, buffersize][, suggestedLatency][, selectchannels][, specialFlags=0]);
error: called from
    PsychPortAudioTimingTest at line 161 column 10
###

I have attached a screenshot with the errors.
Thank you in advance for your time,
Vera
