View Full Version : [ubuntu] Pulseaudio

August 30th, 2010, 04:38 AM
I recently installed Ubuntu Maverick on my main laptop.

The audio works find when logging in as a user, but when logging in as root (yes I understand it's not suggested to run as root) pulseaudio doesn't run.

When attempting to run PA from command line I get a message advising PA isn't intended to be run as root, unless using the --system switch (running in system mode).

Does anyone know why PA doesn't want to run as root and where I can specify the --system parameter on startup automatically so I don't have to manually launch it each time?
