Currently there can be 2 audio session under pipewire (to best of my knowledge)
Issue 1: wireplumber can be installed alongside pipewire-media-session on manjaro ( Which is contrary to what arch allows where these both are in conflict)
FeatureRequest : When installing manjaro-pipewire ask users to what they want pipewire-media-session or wireplumber and put both of those packages in conflict to each other.
No, it can’t.
❯ pacman -Si wireplumber | grep "Conflicts With"
Conflicts With : pipewire-media-session
The feature requested appears to be implemented already
pamac is used to install package
manjaro-pipewire user is requested to choose optional dependency
$ pamac install manjaro-pipewire
Choose optional dependencies for manjaro-pipewire:
1: wireplumber: Alternative session / policy manager implementation
Enter a selection (default=none):
If user selects
1 pamac will offer to install
wireplumber and other PipeWire dependencies
If user does not select
wireplumber pamac will request user to choose between the two packages that provide
Choose a provider for pipewire-session-manager:
1: pipewire-media-session 1:0.4.0-1 extra
2: wireplumber 0.4.4-4 extra

No, it can’t.
I installed manjaro-pipewire, that went well.
Then i installed wireplumber that also went well.
Now I have both installed.
Thanks for telling me this, I actually relied on pacman , I will try using pamac.

pacman also mentions optional dependencies and will gracefully prompt for replacements in the case of conflicts.

This is true it says they are optional dependencies , it doesn’t state that it conflicts with it, I can install them both together like this and now I have both of them installed

Because those packages are not marked as conflicting.
(whether or not you agree with this is probably opinionated)
I honestly dont think its a good thing if pamac is artifically creating ‘faux-conflicts’ instead of relying on ALPM packaging standards …
