I am experimenting with pulseaudio. I have everything working as a normal user which is the correct way. However, I have an application that runs as root that wants to use sound. My /etc/asound.conf is all set for pulse. I tried doing “gpasswd -a root pulse-access” and restarted my application but that did not help.
Was wondering if someone has ran into this and knows a trick. Pulse is running as a normal user and I just want a root task to be able to use the sound card as well.
