    That's good to read - but honestly the problem in the other thread you quote (which was a issued solved by switching to Packman packagers packaged apps) was unlikely to be the same problem.

    Your very first quote in this thread stated, and I quote:

    while it does when run as root
    If it worked with root permissions, but not as a regular user, then clearly it is HIGHLY unlikely that this was an issue solved by installing a packman packager version. Rather it was possibly an issue where root user was configured to send the audio to the correct device, but the regular user account was incorrectly configured to send the audio to the wrong device.

    That wrong user configuration is now corrected from what I can see, and I am happy to read that.

    that is my opinion too
    but i do not have enough knowledge to find out why it works now
    i do not like very much not to understand!
