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 PulseAudio 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 ~/.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  variables  and  combines  them  with  the   data   from
              ~/.pulse/client.conf  (or  /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 ~/.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 configuration.

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

       -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 ~/.pulse-cookie.
