I start the game as "./Foldit". Below error is printed in terminal:
AL lib: (EE) ALCplaybackOSS_open: Could not open /dev/dsp: Input/output error
AL lib: (WW) alcSetError: Error generated on device (nil), code 0xa004
AL lib: (WW) ALCplaybackOSS_open: Could not find "Generic Software" in device list
AL lib: (WW) alcSetError: Error generated on device (nil), code 0xa004
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

I tried following the steps here to no success -
Can't run the game and join COVID-19 fight.

I can also upload/give link to an Ubuntu/Apport bug data .crash file. It contains CoreDump, disassembly, process environment, process maps, registers, segv analysis (as it is a segmentation vault), stacktrace (but without a symbol table), thread stacktrace.
