thanks a lot for your reply,
/> To run audio from another session (ie cron or an ssh login) you need
to set all sorts of stuff for pulseaudio to work even if it is the same user
/That makes perfect sense and I have to admit I wouldn´t have thought of
I´ll look into that matter to see if I can find out more about it.
Perhaps I´ll be able to create a shell script like you suggested.
Thanks again for providing those good ideas of yours.
Many greetings and keep safe.
