[pulseaudio-discuss] Multi user access to PulseAudio

I'm trying to configure PulseAudio on a fresh Kubuntu 16.04 install.
When I'm logged into the desktop, I run a few other programs such
as browsers as different users. By default, those programs are not
allowed to access PulseAudio.
How can I change that and enable multi user access to PulseAudio?
Desprite Googling for days, I can't get this to work. Suggestions I
found that DON'T work include:
- running in system mode (but that is bad, so I won't)
- passing auth-cookie-enabled=0 to module-native-protocol-unix in
/etc/pulse/default.pa (no effect)
- enabling network access (that seems a little overkill, and also
didn't work for me).
So please, what is the official way of granting users other than the
logged-in user access to PulseAudio?
