    NoMachine virtual desktop session has no sound in Snapcraft applications, e.g. Chromium.

    Server OS: Latest fresh install of Debian 12
    Server DE: Mate
    NoMachine version: 8.10.1 from https://downloads.nomachine.com/download/?id=5
    NoMachine configs are by default except for the following:

    AudioInterface pulseaudio
    CommandStartPulseAudio "/usr/bin/pulseaudio --high-priority=no"

    Pulseaudio log when I started playback in Chromium:

    systemd[1348]: Starting pulseaudio.service - Sound Service...

    Other apps e.x. firefox-esr have sound.
    Also, the problem is reproduced on Ubuntu 20.04.

    > Other apps e.x. firefox-esr have sound.

    Are these apps Snap apps as well?

    It looks like audio is not available because snap is sandboxing the app, which is also not setting Pulse ServerĀ  environment variable. Our developers will look for a solution, the related Trouble Report is:

    No. Firefox-esr installed using apt.

    Thanks for the info.
