    Question Shared audio between multiple X sessions?

    Because Alt-Tab rarely ever works properly, I open all fullscreen games in a new X session. This allows me to switch between the game and chat windows or whatever easily.

    However it seems the audio isn't shared between the sessions. I want to be able to play music in Rhythmbox in my main session and still be able to hear it when I'm in the game session. For some reason it doesn't seem to do this.

    Is there any way to make it work the way I want?

    This is just a thought, but what if you play it as root?

    Nope. Didn't seem to help.

    Actually, the audio from my second gaming x session seems to be coming through on the first session, just not the other way round. Perhaps session 2 is 'taking over' the audio or something?
