Thank you for the try. Apparently I don't have that file on my system.
What package provides it or creates it?
Well, that guess didn't work. I had thought that was the way it was done.
The file is provided by pulseaudio-module-x11 but clearly that is a dead end.
I've only had the chance to take a cursory look but looking at the output of ps
egreshko 1189 890 0 08:25 ? 00:00:00 /usr/bin/pulseaudio --daemonize=no
and PID 890 is
egreshko 890 1 0 08:23 ? 00:00:00 /usr/lib/systemd/systemd --user
So, it would seem that pulseaudio is started via systemd user.
[egreshko@f32k ~]$ systemctl --user list-units | grep pulse
loaded active running Sound Service
loaded active running Sound System
I'd think that looking into how that is done may be worthwhile.
The key to getting good answers is to ask good questions.
