xpra attach fails on vanilla Ubuntu Xenial Xerus

Description (last modified by Antoine Martin)

I have just installed vanilla Ubuntu Xenial Xerus, followed by xpra from the official repository (xpra v1.0.1-r14723).

To avoid the many errors/warnings I start the server the following way:

xpra --daemon=no --mdns=no --pulseaudio=no --opengl=no --notifications=no --printing=no start :1984

If I want to attach xpra :1984, xpra fails with a non identifiable error message.

The whole output given from

xpra --opengl=no --pulseaudio=no --notifications=no attach :1984 >error.log 2>&1

is attached to this ticket.

Fixed in r14791, v1.0.x backport in r14792.

You can find 1.0.2 beta packages with this fix here: http://xpra.org/beta
As a temporary workaround, you could probably just install a fake "/usr/local/pactl" binary to pass the pulseaudio test that was returning the "None" value which caused the problem.

Please close if this works for you.

Resolution: fixed

That worked, thank you!
For reference, another solution is to install the pulseaudio packages:
pulseaudio-utils
pulseaudio
jackd

(I was thinking setting pulseaudio=off disabled everything with pulseaudio completely but this does not seem to be the case ...)
