You can use 3 different Audio Frameworks with x2go - esd, arts and
pulse. As lenny still uses Kde 3.5, arts is preconfigured for
redirecting sound. If you wan't to use pulse, you'll need to install it
inside the thin client environment.
As Kde 3.5 has no audio "module" for pulseaudio this is not explained in
the old manual. I'll add this to the wiki soon.

best regards,
