Just to give feedback, latest build (3.0.5) is working fine. The idea of having a system-wide equalizer is just too amazing. Thank you, wwmm.

Thanks! I forgot to remove that :-)

I just remembered, it should be safe enough to remove python-setuptools from makedepends now. I think you know why already :)

Thanks @10479 :-) I understand your pain. I decided to create PulseEffects when the builtin Pulseaudio equalizer stopped playing the right channel of everything I tried to play.

This is absolutely amazing. I had used another common equalizer for pulse and it was just such a pain that I actually ended up purchasing a hardware solution. This, however, works painlessly and brilliantly. Hopefully someday it reaches the point where it can run automatically in the background, but for now I'm fine with running it minimized because it's such a huge step up from other equalizers. Thanks for building this.

Hi @Gallagher. People have asked for this but at this moment it is not possible. I intend to add a command line option for not showing the interface on startup but there is another issue that has to be solved in other to have a background service that actually works. PulseEffects does not remember if an application was being routed to its sink. I rely on Pulseaudio for that and sometimes it just forgets and puts the application in the default sink. So one day it could happen that the "background service" is not applying effects to the apps anymore. I could solve that ignoring Pulseaudio info and building a list of all the apps that the user ever used in PulseEffects. In that list I could save theirs on/off state. But I don't like that approach. PulseEffects code has already grown beyond anything I could have ever expected and I would like to avoid adding code for something that Pulseaudio should be able to do by himself. Another option would be to make PulseEffects sink the default sink. But this makes the per application switches pointless...

Hi @wwmm
Thanks for your awesome work, this plugin fixed those issue I had with pulse-equalizer. But there's only one issue, how can I make it run as a background service or something like that? Close it will just kill the whole service.

@wwmm I got it to work: Just reset all settings an load my preset again - no idea what was wrong, but it's working fine again. :)

Hi @RubenKelevra. It is working in an updated Arch Linux. So the problem is not the update. Please open an issue in and post there the pulseeffects output when executed from command line
