If someone needs any of these packages pre-built, chaotic-aur builds them hourly...

If you have pipewire-common-git installed, make sure you also have pipewire-common-bluez5-git installed so Bluetooth audio can works. (You may want to use pipewire-common-bluez5-hsphfpd-git as an alternative.)

The bluez5 plugin enables Bluetooth A2DP[1] support with various codecs (LDAC, aptX, aptX HD, AAC) support integrated.

pipewire-common-bluez5-git enables native HSP/HFP(AG)[2-3] support and ofono HFP support(ofono support is optional).

pipewire-common-bluez5-hsphfpd-git enables HSP and HFP support using hsphfpd (AUR:, you need to enable/start the hsphfpd service with this).

@kode54 Maybe you are on the old version? pipewire-common-git now is not depends on alsa-card-profiles.

kode54 commented on 2021-01-24 10:12

I see. Since pipewire-common-git is providing it, it shouldn't be depending on the alsa-card-profiles package, or delete the alsa card profiles files, then.

eh5 commented on 2021-01-21 04:56

alsa-card-profiles is now split from pipewire in Arch.

Splitting alsa-card-profiles is meaningless for this VCS package base since it's a pipewire specific version and only pipewire requires it currently, so we let pipewire-common-git provides it.

@tornado99 Then just replace pipewire-git with pipewire-common-git. I would add pipewire-git as conflict of pipewire-common-git in next commit.

edit: Make bluze5 plugin be dependent on pipewire-common-git instead.

What I said about makepkg -rs in my previous comment is to showcase that pipewire is not required for building this package base. It's still a runtime dependency though. Since pipewire-common-git "provides" pipewire, it's not a problem to add pipewire as runtime dependency (aka. put pipewire into depends array).

Seems your AUR helper don't recognize pipewire-common-git as a "pipewire" provider(like pipewire-git). You'd better build/install pipewire-common-git and pipewire-common-pulse-git firstly before building pipewire-common-bluez5-*.

I would like to use a package manager like Pacman/pamac/yay. Even if I start with no pipewire packages installed it seems your AUR package always installs pipewire first. The error I get is:

conflicting files: - pipewire-common-bluez5-hsphfpd-git: /usr/lib/spa-0.2/bluez5/ already exists in filesystem (owned by pipewire-git)

Perhaps you could remove pipewire as a dependency?

It wants to install pipewire or pipewire-git first,

I don't think it requires pipewire to build. Maybe you can try building it with makepkg -rs.


$ git clone
$ cd pipewire-common-git && makepkg -rs

and then complains there is a conflict with pipewire when installing itself.

Of course it conflict with pipewire, the package is meant to replace other pipewire builds.

I'm confused about how to install this. It wants to install pipewire or pipewire-git first, and then complains there is a conflict with pipewire when installing itself.

@FabioLolix This one has gstreamer support (provides gst-plugin-pipewire) and hsphfpd support enabled.

(All below is edit message for anyone who interests.)

Be aware that depend by pipewire-git is not part of pipewire-git package base.

Many people request[1-2] the maintainer( of pipewire-git to enable gstreamer support but seems he refuse to do that. Despite gstreamer support is enabled by default in upstream (also in Arch repo) and gstreamer plugin is a dynamic loadable library which is capable to be split into separate package.

And some request to orphan or delete pipewire-git but all has been rejected by TU[3].

There was a VCS package solved gstreamer problem named pipewire-nightly, but a TU decides to delete it for the reason that the suffix "-nightly" in package name imply that it has to be a snapshot package[4].

Those are reasons why I create this package base.

What is the difference with pipewire-git?
