Package: audacity
Version: 1.3.5-2+lenny1
Severity: important
Usertags: debian-edu

We ran into this issue with Debian Edu, where we are working on making
the Lenny based release these days.

Running audacity via an LTSP client fail to give working sound by
default.  LTSP support ESD and pulseaudio, neither which seem to be
working with audacity.  I looked for a global configuration file I
could use to change the default for all users, but failed to find any.
Is there some environment variable we can set to enable ESD,
pulseaudio or ALSA (which can be configured to use pulseaudio)?

It is possible to get it working using padsp, but then the desktop
file for audacity need to be changed to get it working for all users,
and that is not really an option when we want Debian Edu to work in a
policy compliant way.
