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