esdcompat — PulseAudio ESD wrapper script

Synopsis

esdcompat [options]

esdcompat --help

esdcompat --version

Description

esdcompat is a compatibility script that takes the same arguments as the ESD sound daemon esd(1), but uses them to start a the PulseAudio sound server with the appropriate parameters. It is required to make PulseAudio a drop-in replacement for esd, i.e. it can be used to make gnome-session(1) start up PulseAudio instead of esd.

It is recommended to make esd a symbolic link to this script.
