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 server to connect to. The environment variable $PULSE_SERVER
       takes precedence.

       autospawn= Autospawn a PulseAudio daemon when needed. Takes a boolean value,  defaults  to
       yes.  Note  that  setting  this to "no" doesn't disable the systemd service. The autospawn
       option is only meant to be used on systems without systemd. If you use  systemd  to  start
       PulseAudio,  use  "systemctl --user stop pulseaudio.service pulseaudio.socket" to stop the
       daemon temporarily, or "systemctl --user  mask  pulseaudio.service  pulseaudio.socket"  to
       permanently  disable  the  units  (the "disable" command of systemctl probably won't work,
       because     the      pulseaudio.socket      unit      is      often      installed      to
       /usr/lib/systemd/user/sockets.target.wants/, which makes it impossible to disable the unit
       with the "disable" command).

       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.
