I would like to ssh into a box as a regular user, start pulseaudio, and
have my display forwarded back to the source, while playing audio at the
destination. The only way I have been able to do this is by running
fluxbox at the destination. I would rather just forward the application
This post has shed some light on this, and now I understand that there is
an X display that pulse audio 'likes' when I run fluxbox and connect with
The post suggests at the end:
If you want to access the local machine you can either disable X11
forwarding when SSHing (-x or -X or something... can't remember which),
before running your mplayer command.
However I don't want to disable X forwarding or unset DISPLAY. I want to
forward the display back while playing audio at the remote destination.
How can I achieve that? Any suggestions much appreciated.
