Format of CONF files

I'm trying to set up sharing on a 2nd disk drive and need to add a line to a conf file. Looking at the file comments are preceded by #, but some lines are preceded by ; - is this another comment or does it represent an active line? The line I'm supposed to add doesn't have any prefix.

TIA

Roger

I'm *pretty sure* ";" means a comment, AND that it's a line which you might want to un-comment to change a setting, unlike the "#" lines which really are comments.

Edit: /etc/pulse/client.conf

Code: Select all

## Configuration file for PulseAudio clients. See pulse-client.conf(5) for
## more information. Default values are commented out.  Use either ; or # for
## commenting.
; default-sink =
; default-source =
; default-server =
; default-dbus-server =
