I am trying to use Fenrir master on Ubuntu 20.04. When starting it as root I've got the following:

dorozhinsky2@dell-Inspiron-5570:/media/dorozhinsky2/linux-partition/workspace/fenrir$ sudo src/fenrir
[sudo] password for dorozhinsky2:
ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:1089:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave
play FAIL sox: Sorry, there is no default audio device configured

And there is no speech in the text mode. Note, running:

$ python3 check-dependencies.py

shows no errors. So all dependencies are installed. When starting Fenrir as non-root there is no error like above. However, there is no speech in the text mode either.  Also the same configuration works fine in Ubuntu 18.04.

Best regards
