[pulseaudio] daemon-conf.c: Failed to open configuration file:

I'm having a strange issue, running leafpad from the terminal brings up an permission denied issue in pulseaudio.

$ leafpad note.txt
W: [pulseaudio] core-util.c: Failed to open configuration file '/home/user/.config/pulse//daemon.conf': Permission denied
W: [pulseaudio] daemon-conf.c: Failed to open configuration file: Permission denied

A quick internet search recommends chowning ~/.config/pulse, which fixes the issue temporarily.
How can I determine the underlying issue and permanently stop it from happening?

Re: [pulseaudio] daemon-conf.c: Failed to open configuration file:

Which application(s) are you running as root?


No, it didn't "fix" anything. It just shifted the brokeness one space to the right. - jasonwryan
