Hi all, I'm hoping someone can get me going in the right direction.
I am running jaunty (9.04) and I use amarok to play audio files. I have a second box in another room that runs slackware. I frequently have two X sessions running on the Ubuntu box:
1. Is a local Ubuntu X session.
2. The second X session is remote to my Slack box. I get there by opening a tty with CTRL+ALT+F2 and running
X :1 -query SLACKHOSTNAME
which brings me to the kde login screen of the Slackbox and I go from there. I can then toggle between the two X sessions like any other virtual termial: CTRL+ALT+F7 or CTRL+ALT+F9 (the x session started in tty9 usually maps to tty9 while tty2 remains logging the x session).
What I want to have happen is for amarok to keep playing from the local X session while I am in the remote session. More to the point, I want the sound to keep coming from the speakers since amarok DOES keep playing, I just can't hear it. I can hear amarok when I'm in tty1-6 (consoles), but when I go to the X session the speakers go silent after a few stutters.
I'm really not sure where to start on this. Googling XDMCP and sound basically returns results saying XDMCP doesn't send the sound, which I understand and don't have an interest in doing.
Is there maybe another way to get the same resulting remote X session that will keep me in tty1-6, or a way force the sound to persist regardless of display?
