pacmd - Reconfigure a PulseAudio sound server during runtime SYNOPSIS
pacmd pacmd --help pacmd --version DESCRIPTION
This tool can be used to introspect or reconfigure a running PulseAudio sound server during runtime. It connects to the sound server and offers a simple live shell that can be used to enter the commands also understood in the configuration scripts. To exit the live shell, use ctrl+d. Note that the 'exit' command inside the shell will tell the PulseAudio daemon itself to shutdown! If any arguments are passed on the command line, they will be passed into the live shell which will process the command and exit. OPTIONS

pasuspender - Temporarily suspend PulseAudio SYNOPSIS
pasuspender [options] -- PROGRAM [ARGUMENTS ...] pasuspender --help pasuspender --version DESCRIPTION
pasuspender is a tool that can be used to tell a local PulseAudio sound server to temporarily suspend access to the audio devices, to allow other applications access them directly. pasuspender will suspend access to the audio devices, fork a child process, and when the child process terminates, resume access again. Make sure to include -- in your pasuspender command line before passing the subprocess command line (as shown above). Otherwise pasuspender itself might end up interpreting the command line switches and options you intended to pass to the subprocess. OPTIONS
-h | --help Show help. --version Show version information. -s | --server=SERVER Specify the sound server to connect to. AUTHORS
