I have been running my music player (Clementine) headless on a file server that is plugged into my stereo. I open the player up on my workstation via ssh X11 forwarding (
ssh -f -X me@fileserver 'clementine') and it used to play fine out of my stereo's speakers.
I enabled pulseaudio on my workstation this evening and now I can't get any sound from Clementine because it's picking up the PA driver on my workstation and is trying to play through that. How do I tell the PA libs on my fileserver to always use the local sound system rather than the network one? I can still listen to music by logging into the file server with VNC and starting Clementine from there, but that is a pain.
