Upon install, this package installs /etc/ to change the linker search path, so the linker will find and load PipeWire's library before original ones for dynamically linked applications.

If it does not work for you, please check if there is any file under /etc/ that has /usr/lib in it:

grep -Hi ^/usr/lib/$ /etc/*

And remove the offending line if possible.

Read the wiki page for more information.

Please comment if something goes wrong for you!

@oech3: libpulse contains more (tools, library headers, etc.) than just client libraries that pipewire-pulse does not have. Same for jack and jack2, pipewire-jack does not contain the actual jack server or anything other than the client libraries.

Why do not provide libpulse,jack,jack2 ?

jcstryker commented on 2020-09-12 21:10

Solved it!

You just need to set the path to the pulse server as /run/user/<uid>/pipewire-0 instead of /run/user/<uid>/pulse/native

@pix3l yep same issue with the *-git packages. Everything else seems to work perfectly, but maybe QEMU is doing some hacky stuff to forward audio to pulse.

pix3l commented on 2020-09-12 13:53

@jcstryker: Have you tested pipewire-*git packages? Pipewire is under heavy development and fixes lands there, before they will become releases.

anybody notice issues with using this and the pulseaudio driver for QEMU?

[E][000000037.275466][core.c:71 core_event_error()] core 0x563749a46350: proxy 0x563749a46350 id:0: seq:0 res:-32 (Broken pipe) msg:"connection error"

Something incomplete about the pulseaudio server this exposes?

@hexchain: if you would ever had time to test it with reboot, then I would be glad, because I wonder if problem is in kded5 itself, or mine setup (many non-standard plasma applets, etc)

hexchain commented on 2020-09-09 13:40

@pix3l: I didn't reboot, only logged out and made sure all user processes are terminated, which I believe is sufficient. I can use the plasma-pa applet to adjust volume with PipeWire without pulseaudio running, if that sounds like a proof.

pix3l commented on 2020-09-09 13:32

@hexchain: should be obvious, but have you rebooted your machine after installing it and checked plasma then?

hexchain commented on 2020-09-09 12:16

@pix3l: Packager here. I've used this with Plasma for several hours without any major problems. I didn't see any kded5 crashes at that time.

I have gone back because I rely on some voice/video call software in flatpak and PipeWire does not support flatpak currently.
