Pipewire - Confirm I'm Using It?

Hello Everyone,

I followed the Arch Wiki to install pipewire and remove PulseAudio, but is there a way I can confirm I am ‘switched over’ to PulseAudio and using it currently?

Any help would be super appreciated. Thanks in advance!


$ inxi -A
Device-1: Intel 9 Series Family HD Audio driver: snd_hda_intel
Device-2: NVIDIA TU116 High Definition Audio driver: snd_hda_intel
Device-3: Logitech H390 headset with microphone type: USB
driver: hid-generic,snd-usb-audio,usbhid
Sound Server-1: ALSA v: k5.16.4-1-MANJARO running: yes
Sound Server-2: PipeWire v: 0.3.44 running: yes

You can run

pactl info

and check if it has a line like this:

Server Name: PulseAudio (on PipeWire 0.3.44)

In Manjaro, you should have simply install manjaro-pipewire package to replace pulseaudio with pipewire. But anyway, you can check if pipewire is running with the command suggested by @steanne .
