[SOLVED] What creates ~/.pulse dir?

It's not PulseAudio according to the Wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pu … figuration

PulseEffects says it is reading ~/.pulse/daemon.conf, but I have a ~/.config/pulse/daemon.conf and only want the ~/.config/pulse dir to be read for either Pulse or PulseEffects configuration, per the wiki.

If I move ~/.pulse to ~/.pulse_bckup it is being recreated. There are also differences in ~/.pulse/daemon.conf and ~/.config/pulse/daemon.conf, i.e. the latter has config which I have specified, ~/.pulse/daemon.conf doesn't.

I'd assume paprefs or similar. What's your general mixer application? If you wan't to actually know configure an audit rule: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Audit_framework

FWIW I don't have the dir and neither pulseaudio nor pulseeffects creates it here

Do you have paprefs and/or pavucontrol? I have those.

I don't use paprefs and it's something I'd somewhat expect to change things here, it has also not been updated in a while iirc so it's likely that definitions that are done here are outdated. What are the contents of that folder?

Rebooted. PulseEffects reading correct dir. I must have made some changes somewhere and forgotten about them, which weren't picked up until the reboot. That said, PulseEffects says it is reading "~/.pulse//daemon.conf" (tilde added for convenience here, but full path string shown in PulseEffects). Why the extra '/'?
