NAME

padsp – PulseAudio OSS Wrapper

SYNOPSIS

padsp [options] PROGRAM [ARGUMENTS …]

padsp -h

DESCRIPTION

padsp starts the specified program and redirects its access to OSS com‐
patible audio devices (/dev/dsp and auxiliary devices) to a PulseAudio
sound server.

padsp uses the $LD_PRELOAD environment variable that is interpreted by
ld.so(8) and thus does not work for SUID binaries and statically built
executables.

Equivalent to using padsp is starting an application with $LD_PRELOAD
set to libpulsedsp.so
