Subject: PyHoca-GUI: Windows: "The X2Go PulseAudio system could not be started."
Date: Sun, 6 Jul 2014 19:36:35 -0400
Package: pyhoca-gui
Version: 0.4.0.8
Version: 0.5.0.0-preview

On Windows, whenever I launch PyHoca-GUI a 2nd time (or 3rd time,
etc),I get the error bubble/notification:
The X2Go PulseAudio system could not be started.

The pulseaudio.exe process is indeed not running, and sound does not work.

The simple workaround is to delete the folder:
%USERPROFILE%\.pulse

Or more specifically, delete the only file underneath it:
%USERPROFILE%\.pulse\%COMPUTERNAME%-runtime\pid

You'll have to delete that file after everytime you run PyHoca-GUI.

X2Go Client is not affected by this problem.

note, on Windows:
pyhoca-gui 0.4.0.8 has PulseAudio 1.1
pyhoca-gui 0.5.0.0 has PulseAudio 5.0


Marked as found in versions 0.4.0.8. Request was from Michael DePaulo <mikedep333@gmail.com> to control@bugs.x2go.org. (Sun, 06 Jul 2014 23:45:01 GMT) Full text and rfc822 format available.

For some reason, this affects my desktop, but not my XP VM.

Specifically, on the XP VM, the pid file is left behind. But it does
not cause PyHoca-GUI to display the message. (Nor does it prevent
PyHoca-GUI from launching pulseaudio.exe.)

Desktop (executor):
Windows 8.1 64-bit with update 1
Multiple sound adapters. Adapter listed below is the current default:
Audio driver name: SB Recon3D PCIe
Audio driver provider: CREATIVE
Audio driver date: 7/30/2013
Audio driver version: 6.0.101.57
Audio driver installer: SBRP_CD_LD_1_01_26.exe
Audio driver date (according to website): 29 Jan 14
Accessed locally

XP VM (mothership-xp):
Windows XP 32-bit SP3
Running on Fedora 20 kvm/libvirt
kvm/libvirt set to provide "ac97" audio
Audio driver name: Intel(r) 82801AA AC'97 Audio Controller
Audio driver provider: Microsoft
Audio driver date: 7/1/2001
Driver Version: 5.1.2535.0
Accessed over SPICE with Virt-Viewer 0.6.0 64-bit from said desktop.

I know this "The pulseaudio system could not be started." message from  
Windows desktop sessions running as RDP sessions. As if pulseaudio  
chokes on the RDP audio backend. If I launch pyhoca-gui locally on  
those systems (sitting in front of $SCREEN, not via RDP), then the  
pulseaudio subsystem comes up correctly.
