Pipewire doesnt work

  • Note: This is my first post, if anything is wrong or it is in the wrong category, feel free to tell me and i will change it

Today i updated to pipewire using sudo pacman -S manjaro-pipewire, i have read that it does everything automatically itself, so i just restarted, then the problem is that the sound configuration dissapeared, i can no longer configure my volume nor hear anything.

(i have tried other posts, but no one of them seems to work)

You will possibly need to install pipewire-alsa, pipewire-pulse. Are those installed already?

What is you motivation to move to pipewire? If you didn’t have an audio issue before, it might be best to wait until pipewire becomes more stable.

On my newly installed Manjaro Linux today, there are following pipewire packages and it make sound.

What pipewire software are installed on your system?

If you don’t know well about what pipewire is, try https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7XrrBXIzfg

If you use a translator here it will show you how to replace pulseaudio with pipewire

T+ = See you later

I just reinstalled manjaro again, then i only removed pulseaudio-jack, not entirely pulseaudio, then installed manjaro-pipewire, that did anything automatically and i havent seen any problem.
