esdcompat - PulseAudio ESD wrapper script


esdcompat [options]

esdcompat --help

esdcompat --version


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.
