Hi Mike,

For K12LTSP  v4.4.1 you should only need the following in the lts.conf
file to have your clients able to get sound,( providing they each have a
sound card that is detected at bootup)/ PCI cards makes it much easier.

SOUND        = Y
SOUND_DAEMON = "esd" # make sure you have "" quotes here
VOLUME       = 75

Then open xmms player from Start>Sound & Video > Audio Player,> menu and
go to Options,> Preferences and change output plugin to esd  (default is
In xmms browse to the /usr/share/sounds folder to grab a sound file real
quick to do a test. You should get sound"Waves" showing on the xmms
player,as well as output through your client connected speakers.
We always use Gnome,and I know there are some differences between the way
Gnome and KDE DM initializes sound cards/modules. You might try Gnome
first so you know this much is working. I guess I'll have to see if this
works via KDE as well.

Hope this helps.
