LXDE HDMI as default audio output device

The Problem:

If you are have a old pc running a lightweight linux interface like LXDE or XFCE, e.g LUbuntu and need to get the audio out to work via the HDMI you most probably have notices there is not a nice GUI to do this like in Ubuntu.

The Solution:

pavucontrol is a great and simple solution.  I know it is a bit heavyweight since you have to install pulseaudio but it is the easiest solution I have found.  To install:
sudo apt-get install pulseaudio pavucontrol
then to run
