Configuring audio applications
What is the canonical way to configure the system so that ordinary users
The audio devices are owner=root, group=audio, so I assume that the answer
change applications which want to play sound to group=audio and run them
set group id.
If this is the right way, why don't the applications come configured like
Altenatives would be:
- Only root allowed to play sound: Bad, encourages you to be root when you
- Run applications su root: Much more dangerous than set group to audio,
- Make audio devices public read/write: This might be the best solution.
assume there is a reason the system doesn't come configured this way.
