http://askubuntu.com – I have a USB sound card on a host system which has all my music, and to which I have connected my living room speakers. I would like to use my laptop to ssh -X into that system and run my favorite music player remotely, so that sound is played on the USB sound card on the host system. However, when I ssh in, and start the music player, it does not seem to see my sound settings there (even though I'm logged in with the same user with which I would normally log in) and will only play using the internal sound card. Is there a way that I can make the ssh session pick up the (I assume) pulseaudi (HowTos)
