As I understand it, you cannot start pulseaudio in non-system mode without having an X server running, but seeing as the server is is headless this is not an option. So I began writing a cobbled together systemd script to start the daemon as a system-wide instance.

Manual start of pulseaudio with both start-pusleaudio-x11 and pulseaudio --start immediately resores sound in Firefox, but shutting FF down again also kills pusleaudio, and starting FF doesn't cause it to start again. Expected results: Firefox should has been able to respawn (start) PulseAudio when the PulseAudio server was down and to play sound The pulseaudio package is the one from buildroot and I ticked start as system daemon. When the system starts, pulseaudio seems to be running. # ps aux | grep pulse 174 pulse usr/bin/pulseaudio --system --daemonize --disallow-exit --disallow-module-loading 197 root grep pulse
The PulseAudio sound server reads configuration directives from a file ~/.pulse/daemon.conf on startup and when that file doesn't exist from /etc/pulse/daemon.conf.Please note that the server also reads a configuration script on startup default.pa which also contains runtime configuration directives.. The configuration file is a simple collection of variable declarations So if I disable pulseaudio autostart, and start it from bash, I get these errors bash-5.0$ pulseaudio E: [pulseaudio] module-jack-sink.c: jack_client_open() failed.

While its main purpose is to ease audio configuration, its modular design allows more advanced users to configure the daemon precisely to best suit their needs

Task Type pulse-daemon.conf - PulseAudio daemon configuration file fail= Fail to start up if any of the directives in the configuration script default.pa fail.

PulseAudio is guaranteed to be fully initialized when this call returns. Implies --daemonize. -k |--kill Kill an already running PulseAudio daemon of the calling user (Equivalent to sending a SIGTERM)
Running PulseAudio as System-Wide Daemon. Starting with PulseAudio 0.9.3 the daemon can be run as a system-wide instance which than can be shared by multiple local users. We recommend running the PulseAudio daemon per-user, just like the traditional ESD sound daemon. In some situations however, such as embedded systems where no real notion of a. high-priority= Renice the daemon after startup to become a high-priority process. This a good idea if you experience drop-outs during playback. However, this is a certain security issue, since it works when called SUID root only, or RLIMIT_NICE is used. root is dropped immediately after gaining the nice level on startup, thus it is presumably safe
W: [pulseaudio] main.c: OK, so you are running PA [...] bad idea. E: [pulseaudio] main.c: Daemon startup without any loaded modules, refusing to work. Is there something wrong with the default setup This situation can also arrise when PulseAudio crashed and left stale details in the X11 Root Window If this is the case, then PulseAudio should autospawn again, or if this is not configured you should run start-pulseaudio-x11 manuall

Install pulseaudio and make sure user (e.g. eric) is part of the audio group: sudo apt-get install pulseaudio pulseaudio-utils sudo adduser eric audio Change /etc/asound.conf look like the following. This sets up pulseaudio to be used as an alsa device by default so applications use it without any additional configuration PulseAudio Daemon Fails to Start after Reinstallation. You may see: E: [pulseaudio] main.c: Daemon startup failed. Move ~/.config/pulse to ~/.config/pulseold and try to start pulse again. It should come up on the second try.

Hi, I am trying to install and enable pulseaudio by default on the latest manjaro i3 ISO. So far I have installed pulseaudio, pulseaudio-alsa, manjaro-pulse and pavucontrol. When I run: Code: [Select] $ pulseaudio -D I get following error: Code: [Select] E: [pulseaudio] main.c: Daemon startup failed. When I then run Hello community, I recently reinstalled Manjaro i3 and updated to the latest version. I installed pulseaudio software and manjaro-pulse packages, The pulse audio would work fine at first but after i logout once and again, the pulse daemon completely goes off.. I tried many solutions. Pulseaudio do not show any devices for streaming output and input... I followed this thread because. PulseAudio has no default settings for surround sound support. To enable all channels, edit the file /etc/pulse/daemon.conf: uncomment default-sample-channels (ie remove the semicolon at the beginning of the line) and set it to 6 if you System 5.1 or 8, if your system is 7.1 On Wed, 22 Nov 2017 20:10:19 -0500 Doug <dmcgarrett@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: > On 11/22/2017 05:36 PM, David A.

I have a love-hate relationship with PulseAudio: it has a lot of great features, but sometimes it's more resource-hungry than I would like, and it also crashes more often than I'd like.

What I have noticed is there is a cookie file created by the pulseaudio daemon on startup. However, it's created as rw only on the pulse _user_, where it would be far nicer if the file was created 'r' on the pulse group as well Running PulseAudio as a system-wide service has advantages -- you can play audio without having logged on, multiple users can play audio on the same audio gear, and music daemons like MPD won't fight for the audio device with PulseAudio.
