Okay -- I am still confused. Well, not so much confused.. but Esound doesn't seem to have any decent documentation. How do I configure application programs to use it? And where is it run from? I didn't see it in my /etc/init.d directory anywhere. And at least a few programs I use (e.g. ogle for dvds) don't have options to send sound to esd, and complain that /dev/dsp is not available... so esd has to be killed before I can play dvds.
There is not much configuration to be done on the daemon side of esd. I believe that it will be started up automagically by the programs (i.e. xmms) which use it for output. So it's simply a matter of configuring the client applications. I have no real experience with ogle, but your reasoning is correct. You have to kill esd before you want to run an application, which uses /dev/dsp directly.
And what are these 'streamer sinkers' of which you speak? Googling for 'gstreamer-sinker' and 'sink-esd' both come up empty.
root@wintermute [~]# apt-cache search gstreamer esd gstreamer-esd - Enlightened Sound Daemon plugin for GStreamer gstreamer0.8-esd - Enlightened Sound Daemon plugin for GStreamer in GConf, look in system/gstreamer/default and system/gstreamer/0.8/default.
By the way, where does an application like Macromedia Flash Plugin for Mozilla fit into this structure?
IIRC, it worked correctly with esd. However I don't use flash often, so I have no first-hand experience at the moment. j. -- ______________________________________________________________________________ "We did a risk management review.
