    I note totem has a preference for how many speakers for output but thats not the whole story.
    Well.. I was lost in "the Google jungle" finding out....


    Testing Pulseaudio , I had a broken MS-Soundsystem which I fixed but rear/front remains.

    Annoying Pulseaudio... but it must be overcomed

    Clean Alpha 6 install but /home on a separate partition.
    Deleted all gnome/gconf settings folders also other files before install.

    Installed Alpha 6

    Installed padevchooser and all other PA packages follows

    Started PA device chooser and no permission for anything.

    No permission for restarting or kill PA

    The file /.esd_auth was belonging to root.

    Changed it to user owned and everything works.

    Can someone more confirm/check this ?

    Re: HOWTO: PulseAudio Fixes (distilled)

    I think I found the problem. Pulseaudio (at least in 0.9.12) now seems not to be configured as a system-wide daemon anymore. The file in /etc/init.d/pulseaudio relies on /etc/default/pulseaudio which dictates whether it is used as a system-wide daemon and whether it will support module loading. It is set not to be a system-wide daemon (which inherently breaks mpd) which makes the file in /etc/init.d/ not do anything at all, not even display "starting pulseaudio" or "stopping pulseaudio".

    I changed that config file, not hard. Somehow though, some other pulseaudio instances are running _before_ the one in /etc/init.d/ can start and don't have the right options, thus blocking it and stopping mpd from being connected to pulseaudio, so it is connected to alsa instead.

    Why can't any problems just be simple? I bet I'm still missing a piece of the puzzle.

    Since Hardy, PulseAudio hasn't been configured as a system-wide daemon (though IMHO, it should have).

    Will the pulse-jack module be avilable in Intrepid or will I still have to get it from debian?

    The probability is very high that Intrepid won't get any updates to PulseAudio at all (just some tweaks to the buffering settings, and to enable the ALSA plugins by default).

    You should be looking on Launchpad:

    I filed a bug about esd_auth
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...io/+bug/272402

    Upgrade to 0.9.12 again... its better despite of some bugs, at least for me.

    64 bit users: I pushed through an update for nspluginwrapper (1.1.0-0ubuntu3~ppa1). Unfortunately nspluginwrapper doesn't support windowless mode correctly in the latest version of flash, causing frequent crashes for many people. This update disables windowless mode support, which should solve those crashes. Let me know the results!

    P.S. This will be an official update after the beta release, unless there's a compatibility update to nspluginwrapper or flash.

    Re: HOWTO: PulseAudio Fixes (distilled)

    More findings...

    Code:
    D: sink-input.c: Have to rewind 452 bytes on render memblockq.
    I: sink-input.c: Freeing input 5 "(null)"
    I: client.c: Freed 12 "mozillaSound"
    Great sound after that... mystery

    1.18.RC3 and PA 0.9.12...

    Well it broke again..."back to the roots"

    Original howto
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=4928900

    No Equalizer !

    Using these values for daemon.conf

    no-cpu-limit = yes
    high-priority = yes
    nice-level = -11
    realtime-scheduling = yes
    realtime-priority = 5
    default-fragments = 8
    default-fragment-size-msec = 5
    resample-method = speex-float-10


    Also found a howto enable front/rear speakers... (psyke83 points to it)
