I can hear sound from the terminal, but not the launcher?

Hi everyone!


I'm guessing this is probably an issue with my bar-descriptor.xml file, but maybe someone here has ideas. Basically, when I run my application from the terminal (over SSH) I can hear my sound, and hear the game running, but it doesn't display anything on the device.


If I run the game from the launcher instead, I don't get my graphics and I don't hear any sound. I am guessing this is either a difference in resolving asset paths, or a difference in permissions when launching through the terminal compared to launching through the app icon?


Any pointers? Thanks for your help!

You cannot run application over ssh. Start with example project that does graphics and sounds, then add your code into that.
