An attempt to run the Extrace Wave Display shows that
esound is needed:
** ERROR **: Cannot connect to EsounD
Not clear that this is not the correct behaviour, we probably
don't want to start esd for monitor clients.
whats the problem? its pare ot gnome-media - and gnome has a
requirement for esound... so whats the problem?
My question is this: Is esound disabled on purpose, and if so, must
it be loaded manually every time?
libesd currnetly starts esound when needed. extace needs esd runnign
just liek an X program needs an Xserver running. this sint a bug.
Old bug, and extace is maintained separately now (please talk to the
author about getting at least a warning dialog in though :)
