Subject: Pulseaudio still buggy in standard release of X2Goclient for Windows
Date: Wed, 11 Dec 2013 15:23:27 +0100
Package: x2goclient
Severity: wishlist
Version: 4.0.1.2

There's no improvement on the sound issue (Flash videos sound "choppy"), 
yet there's no additional download option where one could download a 
copy of x2goclient-4.0.1.2-pre02-setup that is set to use the old 
pulseaudio.

This is a showstopper for me, I can't roll that out to my customers.

For each previous version since the issue was discovered, an "interim" 
version was published that used the old pulseaudio.

Subject: Workaround

Please test and follow this workaround with x2goclient-4.0.1.2pre02
(for windows) until a 4.0.1.2pre02 package with the old pulseaudio is
made (most likely in several hours):

1. Install x2goclient 4.0.1.2pre02 if you haven't already. It will by
default be installed to "C:\Program Files\x2goclient\" on 32-bit, and
"C:\Program Files (x86)\x2goclient\" on 64-bit.
2. Rename the installation location's "pulse" subfolder to "pulse-1.1"
3. Download http://code.x2go.org/releases/binary-win32/x2goclient/with-old-pulseaudio-0.9.6/releases/4.0.0.3/x2goclient-4.0.0.3.interims-setup.exe
but do not install it.
4. Open that .exe file in 7-zip or peazip as an archive and extract
the $_OUTDIR\pulse\ folder from it. Do not extract it directly to the
installation location's folder. Instead, extract it to someplace where
you have write permissions, such as your "My Documents" so that
windows UAC file virtualization does not interfere.
(There's other ways to get this "pulse" folder too. E.g, installing it
on a spare machine and copying the folder. Temporarily uninstalling
x2goclient 4.0.1.2pre02 and installing 4.0.0.3.interims, etc.)
5. Copy the "pulse" folder to the x2go installation folder.

I quickly tested this workaround on an x2goserver VM running ubuntu
12.04.x 32-bit (with the latest updates and the quantal HWE) and it
did fix this bug for me. (This bug was present when I did not perform
the workaround.) My client system is windows 8.1 64-bit.
