How can I get sound forwarding from a 12.04 to a 12.04 ubuntu machine ? I have tried a couple things I found on google, but none worked. There were not targetted towards ubuntu.

I know it's a few months ago, but I've found a solution to this problem : it's not necessary to activate sound forwarding in nxclient, but you have to type this command within a terminal after opening nx session : pacmd load-module module-tunnel-sink server=[YOUR_CLIENT_IP].

Make sure the volume is on and high enough (this sounds stupid, but I've lost time because of that…), and this should work. I think there should be a mean to have this command run automatically on session launch, but I didn't try to do that.
