After trying to cleanly reinstall the whole pulse / pipewire system because of crackling, the problem isn’t solved and I don’t have the access anymore to the pavucontrol interface from the KDE miniature box and audio settings no longer appears in the global system settings.
I also can’t modify sound volume using the “Fn” shortcuts, the only way I can is with the command pavucontrol-gt
It basically appears as no linked anymore to Manjaro.
So is there a clean way to install, link everything and stop crackling ?
Sorry for my noobiness, I don’t know for now how these softwares are or should communicate.
What is suppose to mean? You removed packages and then reinstalled what you remembered?
I was not sure about what were the base packages installed in manjaro and what were the packages I installed by myself to try to make the whole thing works. So I uninstalled all the related pulse and pipewire packages and installed these:
pavucontrol-gt from community
paprefs from extra
pulseaudio-ctl from community
pulsemixer from community
pulseaudio-alsa from extra
pipewire-pulse from extra
pipewire-alsa from extra
Install manjaro-pulse meta package and then reboot the system.
I already tryed manjaro-pulse, but it just shows a panel in the miniature box (not the same one that was initially displayed), and audio parameters still unavailable from system settings. Anyway that’s true I did not try to reboot after install it, I’ll try this now.
EDIT: manjaro-pulse stills showing this and nothing more, and there is no sound anymore.
At least the EQs that were using pipewire before I install manjaro-pulse were working, but this is not the case anymore.
Moreover, it looks like my realtek soundcard is not recognized anymore by pulse, the only hardware device detected is the S/PDIF out. The realtek soundcard was recognized before this
