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  /usr/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 de-
	      fault 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.
