Run pulseaudio in a Docker container
Full Description


Launching pulseaudio

echo "autospawn = no" > ~/.config/pulse/client.conf
pulseaudio --kill
rm -rf ~/.config/pulse/
docker-compose up -d

If you wish your host system to use your docker pulseaudio server, e.g.
accepting Fn volume Up/Down and On/Off keys, issue the following command

xprop -root -f PULSE_SERVER 8s -set PULSE_SERVER "tcp:localhost:4713"

To remove pulseaudio properties from environment variables

pax11publish -e

To test whether pulseaudio is working

PULSE_SERVER="tcp:localhost:4713" pactl list
PULSE_SERVER="tcp:localhost:4713" alsamixer
PULSE_SERVER="tcp:localhost:4713" mplayer some.avi

To see what is being used by pulseaudio

$ netstat -lp |grep -i pulseaudio
unix  2      [ ACC ]     STREAM     LISTENING     29632    2147/pulseaudio      /tmp/.esd-1000/socket
unix  2      [ ACC ]     STREAM     LISTENING     29635    2147/pulseaudio      /run/user/1000/pulse/native

If you wish to disable annoying "popping" notification sounds

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.sound event-sounds false
