Sound sharing with ubuntu

Ubuntu has a supper cool feature for people who would like to share the sound between multiple machines.
This allows for a computer connected to a HI FI sound system, to share this system with several other machines.

It's also super simple to setup.


Install:
sudo apt-get install paprefs paman padevchooser
On the machine in where you want the sound system to be available to other machines
goto System->Preferences->PulseAudio Preferences and change it to look like the picture



On the system where you want where you want the sounds applications to run
Install:
sudo apt-get install paprefs paman padevchooser
goto System->Preferences->PulseAudio Preferences and change it to look like the picture


Also go to Applications->Sound & Video->Pulse Device Chooser, this will add a icon to your task bar. Check the "Start applet on session login", for future reboots.





Final step is just to select the server where you want the sound to be played.
Just on the click Pulse Audio applet and select "Default Server" and pick the server.



Enjoy
