I think also that's the only way, when you start pulseaudio 4 times it 
will be verry strange ?

Yeah but that's not a problem, they can do something like this but they 
don't.  The only thing that I will have is at start the right output to 
the right screen. ( user1 will always be to screen 1, user2 to screen2 ...)

When I try this whit per-user daemon, how can I do this ?

I found this on google :



That's also with the system-wide daemon, but I don't know how can I 
solve the other problem :


The sound starts always on the user he's first start. example, user 3 
log first on and then user 2 .  The sound goes to the output describe 
for user 3 also for user 2 the sound goes to speakers 3. When I restart 
the computer en first log user 2 in and then user 3 , the sound goes to 
speaker 2 also for user 3 -> speaker 2.

When I changed with the aplet, it works fine. but on restart it's 
changed to the user that have first log-in.
