Description Anton Novikov 2012-07-10 10:03:56 UTC
If pacmd fails, there's no way to check that:

$ pacmd suspend false; echo $?
Welcome to PulseAudio! Use "help" for usage information.

Comment 1 Felipe Sateler 2014-05-07 15:19:55 UTC
With pa 5 it is still impossible to tell wether pacmd succeeded:

% pacmd load-module imaginary-module ; echo $?
Module load failed.
Comment 2 Tanu Kaskinen 2014-05-07 20:17:46 UTC
It's generally better to use pactl rather than pacmd.
