What is the command to know my PulseAudio version?

pulseaudio --version

This should give you an output something like this:

pulseaudio 0.9.21-63-gd3efa-dirty

To get the version of the Debian package you have installed, use:

dpkg -l pulseaudio

which will give output like this:

||/ Name             Version          Description
ii  pulseaudio       1:0.9.22~0.9.21+ PulseAudio sound server

Do you know how to upgrade to version 0.9.22? – Joshua White Jan 14 '11 at 13:58
I don't but someone else might - you should ask this as another question. – dv3500ea Jan 14 '11 at 14:01
