mpd cannot connect to pulse

Hi,

I am setting up a new stretch-sytem from scratch and I have a surprising amount of problems. As usual sound is one of them.

mpd's output is configured such:

Code: Select all
audio_output {
        type            "pulse"
        name            "MPD Output"
        server          "localhost"             # optional
}


mpd runs but it cannot play any audio the log says

Code: Select all
Jul 09 00:17 : exception: Failed to open "MPD Output" [pulse]
Jul 09 00:17 : exception: nested: failed to connect: Connection refused


mpd runs as my own user account.

What am I missing?


EDIT: Other applications (like vlc) play sound just fine

removing the "server" line from the mpd config solved the problem.

I don't get this anymore, but hey - it works (for now).
