Sound Support

X-Win32 now ships with the Enlightenment Sound Daemon (esd.exe) which is launched at startup. You can now pipe remote sounds in your XDMCP and LIVE sessions. You can configure remote applications to send the sounds to X-Win32 by running the command esddsp in a terminal:

For example: esddsp application_name

Not all applications support esd and some special configuration may need to take place on a per application basis
