NAME

       pulse-client.conf - PulseAudio client configuration file

SYNOPSIS

       ~/.config/pulse/client.conf

       ~/.config/pulse/client.conf.d/*.conf

       /etc/pulse/client.conf

       /etc/pulse/client.conf.d/*.conf

DESCRIPTION

       The  PulseAudio client library reads configuration directives from a configuration file on
       startup. If the per-user file ~/.config/pulse/client.conf exists, it  is  used,  otherwise
       the  system  configuration  file /etc/pulse/client.conf is used. In addition to those main
       files,  configuration  directives  can  also   be   put   in   files   under   directories
       ~/.config/pulse/client.conf.d/ and /etc/pulse/client.conf.d/. Those files have to have the
       .conf file name extension, but otherwise the file names can be chosen  freely.  The  files
       under client.conf.d are processed in alphabetical order. In case the same option is set in
       multiple files, the last  file  to  set  an  option  overrides  earlier  files.  The  main
       client.conf  file is processed first, so options set in files under client.conf.d override
       the main file.

       The  configuration  file  is  a  simple  collection  of  variable  declarations.  If   the
       configuration  file  parser encounters either ; or # it ignores the rest of the line until
       its end.

       For the settings that take a  boolean  argument  the  values  true,  yes,  on  and  1  are
       equivalent, resp. false, no, off, 0.

DIRECTIVES

       default-sink=  The  default sink to connect to. If specified overwrites the setting in the
       daemon. The environment variable $PULSE_SINK however takes precedence.

       default-source= The default source to connect to. If specified overwrites the  setting  in
       the daemon. The environment variable $PULSE_SOURCE however takes precedence.

       default-server=  The  default  sever to connect to. The environment variable $PULSE_SERVER
       takes precedence.

       autospawn= Autospawn a PulseAudio daemon when needed. Takes a boolean value,  defaults  to
       yes.

       daemon-binary=  Path to the PulseAudio daemon to run when autospawning. Defaults to a path
       configured at compile time.

       extra-arguments= Extra arguments to pass  to  the  PulseAudio  daemon  when  autospawning.
       Defaults to --log-target=syslog

       cookie-file=  Specify  the  path  to  the  PulseAudio  authentication  cookie. Defaults to
       ~/.config/pulse/cookie.

       enable-shm= Enable data transfer via  POSIX  or  memfd  shared  memory.  Takes  a  boolean
       argument, defaults to yes. If set to no, communication with the server will be exclusively
       done through data-copy over sockets.

       enable-memfd=. Enable data transfer via memfd shared memory.  Takes  a  boolean  argument,
       defaults to yes.

       shm-size-bytes=  Sets  the  shared  memory  segment  size  for  clients, in bytes. If left
       unspecified or is set to 0 it will default to some  system-specific  default,  usually  64
       MiB.  Please  note  that  usually  there  is  no need to change this value, unless you are
       running an OS kernel that does not do memory overcommit.

       auto-connect-localhost= Automatically try to connect to localhost via IP. Enabling this is
       a  potential  security  hole  since connections are only authenticated one-way and a rogue
       server might hence fool a client into sending it its private (e.g. VoIP call)  data.  This
       was enabled by default on PulseAudio version 0.9.21 and older. Defaults to no.

       auto-connect-display=  Automatically try to connect to the host X11's $DISPLAY variable is
       set to. The same security issues apply as to auto-connect-localhost=. Defaults to no.
