Raspberry Pi – PulseAudio daemon SystemWide at Boot

Various findings on how to start PulseAudio at boot. has general information on running PulseAudio systemwide at boot. Those instructions, however, did not seem to actually start the daemon at boot.

sudo chmod 555 /var/run/pulse/.config/pulse/cookie
to get around cookie file/authentication errors.

Modifying /etc/pulse/ with…
load-module module-native-protocol-unix auth-anonymous=1
…seems to help. But, I have no audio when booting into the Pixel GUI.
