after I type it I should get some output somewhere (I don't)? it's not
like a terminal is it?

anyway with the listener opener, when I have pulseaudio running I get
this message when I press play:
;open read /dev/dsp: No such file or directory
; [audio.c[576] linux_audio_open_with_error]

if I kill pulseaudio I don't get anymore this message but I still get
the same behaviour when pressing play
