Wine and Pulseaudio Support
Currently wine does not have native support for pulseaudio. However different
ways exist to make wine sound work alongside pulseaudio. Different sound
outputs can be selected via `winecfg` or in the registry of wine.

To achieve sound output via the wine alsa driver you need to add
a pulseaudio alsa device to the alsa configuration and activate it in wine. See on how to do this.

If the pulseaudio-esound-compat package is installed selecting the EsounD driver
in wine should enable sound via pulseaudio.

To use the oss driver of wine copy the following script to ~/bin/wine and make
sure that ~/bin is in your path with a higher priority then /usr/bin. The script
will call the pulseaudio dsp wrapper padsp.

if [ -x /usr/lib*/alsa-lib/ ] && [ -x "/usr/bin/padsp" ] ; then
    echo "Running padsp as pulseaudio wrapper for wine"
    exec padsp -n Wine -- /usr/bin/wine "$@"
    exec /usr/bin/wine "$@"
