How to subscribe to pulseaudio events from terminal instead of C


I know that using libpulse one can subscribe to pulseaudio events (volume change, etc.) in a C program. Is there some way that I can achieve this from bash as well?

  • I think you are looking for patcl subscribe.

    From the man page:

             Subscribe to events, pactl does not exit by itself, but keeps waiting for new events.

    Sorry for the late reply but I just ran into this myself.
