[Lubuntu] No pulseaudio explains no local sound on LTSP clients?

A couple more notes:

I find that Pulseaudio is indeed installed on Lubuntu Precise, so 
perhaps the previous post's "We don't use pulseaudio" remark refers 
merely to non-usage by Skype, rather than to fundamental configuration 
in Lubuntu?

In Edubuntu 12.04, local sound works fine on LTSP clients.  So Alsa and 
Pulseaudio are configured differently in Edubuntu/Ubuntu than in Lubuntu?
