Instructions for downgrade to version 4.11.0-2:


unp aur-7dab76102955.tar.gz

mv aur-7dab76102955 xfce4-mixer-4.11.0-2

cd xfce4-mixer-4.11.0-2


sudo pacman -U xfce4-mixer-4.11.0-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst

as root edit /etc/pacman.conf and add "xfce4-mixer" to IgnorePkg, to avoid update.

alsa-utils are already installed.

My question is how to exactly downgrade. What's the relevant command to download the old pkg, pls?

You can downgrade to the previous version by checking out that commit. The previous version was patched by some changes from another distro for reasons unknown to me. I never used it. Perhaps, the original maintainer can comment on that.

This is the latest vanilla version from the xfce4 repo. Removing alsa-utils broke this application on my system, so I added it as dependency (it could be a nested dependency that it requires but I need more time to pinpoint it). See if that works for y'all now.

Where can I find the previous version's AUR package? I understand that an older commit has to be used to git clone the old version. I would like to downgrade this package.

same thing for me. 4.18.1-1 doesn't work. I even don't get any error messages

4.18.1-1 also doesn't work for me.

The icon in the tray has changed to the default volume icon of xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin.

When I hover over the tray icon, It says "no valid device or element".

From the menu, when I choose "open mixer" I get the error msg "Gstreamer cannot find sound devices. Maybe necessary packages are not installed. It might also be a problem with user rights" (translated from the German error msg, so the original error msg is probably slightly different).

Everything worked well until I updated the package today. All necessary GStreamer packages are unchanged and installed.

@TravisBaird, can you provide more details, please?
