Alas, by default, pulseaudio is run in user mode, and is set to respawn, so that I cannot kill the user process and start pulseaudio in system mode. I tried: 1. Editing /etc/pulse/client.conf, setting autospawn = no. This did nothing. 2. Removing the file /etc/pulse/client.conf.d/01-respawn-something. I cannot even begin to fathom why such a file would exist. Anyway, this did nothing. 3. I removed the file /usr/bin/start-pulseaudio. Why .... Of course, this did nothing. 4. I removed the file /etc/xdg/autostart/pulseaudio.desktop. Why on earth do you implement four different ways to annoy your users? On the other hand, this did NOTHING. User mode is still starting, and respawning is enabled. What the heck do I have to do to get rid of user mode pulseaudio? Could you please clean up this clusterfuck?
