[pulseaudio-discuss] Problem: non-interactive pulseaudio ( headless )

Heaving read how bad headless is, and how it's "rarely" needed and may
not work, I was a bit blase about running my interactive art
installation from systemd.
After all, systemd allows me to run as a user.
When I run as a non-interactive user, I get a "pulseaudio can't
connect", which is an errno 6. This happens from systemd, after
everything's started, I'm just debugging so I'm running my systemctl
From what I read here, the aversion to running as a service is
security, and if I run as a user everything should be fine, but it is
the connect call that failing.
Regrettably I'm at a place with limited connectivity, but any tips would
be welcome, or at least for the next person who is trying to run a
perfectly reasonable headless installation.
Thanks & Regards,
