I have a laptop (ubuntu 14.04) connected to my stereo, acting as a pulseaudio server. If I just boot that laptop, I can play sound from other laptops with no problem. But if I then log into my gnome desktop, the playback stops. I can play music on the gnome desktop now, but the previously running music is stopped. How can I configure the pulseaudio server to keep running even after logging in?
I tried to run it in daemon mode
#grep daemonize /etc/pulse/daemon.conf daemonize = yes
and also tried to disable
chmod -x /usr/bin/start-pulseaudio-x11
with no luck.
