NAME

       pax11publish - PulseAudio X11 Credential Utility


SYNOPSIS

       pax11publish -h

       pax11publish [options] [-d]

       pax11publish [options] -e

       pax11publish [options] -i

       pax11publish [options] -r


DESCRIPTION

       The pax11publish utility can be used to dump or manipulate the PulseAu-
       dio server credentials that can be stored as properties on the X11 root
       window.

       Please  note  that  the  loadable module module-x11-publish exports the
       same information directly from the PulseAudio sound server, and  should
       in most cases be used in preference over this tool.

       Use the following command to dump the raw PulseAudio-specific data that
       is stored in your X11 root window:

       xprop -root | grep ^PULSE_


OPTIONS

       -h     Show help.

       -d     Read the PulseAudio server credentials currently set on the  X11
              root  window  and dump them in a human readable form. This reads
              the  PULSE_SERVER,  PULSE_SINK,  PULSE_SOURCE  and  PULSE_COOKIE
              properties.

       -i     Similar  to  -d, however dumps them in a Bourne shell compatible
              format so they may be used together with the eval shell  command
              to set the $PULSE_SERVER, $PULSE_SINK, $PULSE_SOURCE environment
              variables. Also reads the authentication cookie  from  the  root
              window and stores it in ~/.config/pulse/cookie.

       -e     Export  the  currently  locally  used sound server, sink, source
              configuration to the X11 root window. This takes the  data  from
              the  $PULSE_SERVER, $PULSE_SINK, $PULSE_SOURCE environment vari-
              ables  and  combines   them   with   the   data   from   ~/.con-
              fig/pulse/client.conf  (or  /opt/local/etc/pulse/client.conf  if
              that file does not exist). If specific options are passed on the
              command  line (-S, -O, -I, -c, see below), they take precedence.
              Also   uploads   the   local   authentication   cookie   ~/.con-
              fig/pulse/cookie to the X11 server.

       -r     Removes  the  configured  PulseAudio  configuration from the X11
              root window.

       -D DISPLAY
              Connect to the specified X11 display, instead of the default one
              configured in $DISPLAY.

       -S SERVER
              Only  valid  for  -e:  export the specified PulseAudio server as
              default to the X11 display instead of  the  one  configured  via
              local configuration.

       -O SINK
              Only  valid for -e: export the specified sink as default sink to
              the X11 display instead of the one configured via local configu-
              ration.

       -I SOURCE
              Only valid for -e: export the specified source as default to the
              X11 display instead of the one configured via  local  configura-
              tion.

       -c FILE
              Only  valid  for -e: export the PulseAudio authentication cookie
              stored in the specified file to the X11 display instead  of  the
              one stored in ~/.config/pulse/cookie.
