Back in the day a similar request against package pavucontrol in FS#45800 was rejected in favour of adding pulseaudio as an optional dependency. The aim was to avoid forcing those wanting to use pavucontrol, which is technically a UI to the client, to control remote servers only into installing an unneeded server locally.
Given that this decision is still valid I actually do not think that pavucontrol-qt-git should be adjusted to pavucontrol-qt, but pavucontrol-qt to pavucontrol. If so, I'm not sure whether the replacement of pulseaudio with pulse-native-provider in pavucontrol-qt 1b3e45b8 should be kept. Package pavucontrol wasn't ported to it, my personal experience with PipeWire wouldn't exactly advocate that change either (besides I may have to reveisit this).

Hi, could you replace libpulse in the dependency list with pulseaudio? For two reasons:

  • pavucontrol-qt will NOT work without a working instance (an active socket) of pulseaudio
  • To make this package consistent with community/pavucontrol-qt

@n4nn31355, @prometheus In case you wanted to point to the new build dependency it would have been better to drop a comment here as flag "out-of-date" almost never applies to so-called VCS packages, see

Hey man, is there any chance you will update this package?
