View Full Version : [ubuntu] mpd freezing all soundapps in X

July 8th, 2010, 10:48 AM
when running mpd with default settings it used to freeze all my apps using sound in X, like skype, flash, mplayer ...

i think this is comming from pulseaudio and the user rights. i tried to add mpd into "pulse-access" group, but this makes things even worse. then there is no more hardware in soundcontrol and audio only runs as "dummy". but mpd is running fine.

i run 10.4. and in mpd.conf i have configured pulseaudio defaults and "mpd" as user and "audio" as group.

i would love to have mpd running in the back and having usuall X sounds as well. any suggestions?
