Works, thanks. I now have sound with Rythmbox and other media players ; 
but still no esd (and sounds for Gnome events).

ps -aux |grep

returns nothing (except grep esd). "Launch sound server" and "Activate 
sound events" are activated... I have to add another line to launch esd 
I guess with this user. Where ?

Do you think I should report a bug for this ?
