I am currently running pipewire 0.3.49 and easyeffects 6.2.4 on my manjaro xfce system with a rather special problem. Usually my external audio interface is selected as standard input source and output sink in pavucontrol. I’m using easyeffects solely to grab the audio input, filtering and noise cancelling it and feeding it into my chat applications.
When locking my screen, sound output is stopped. After unlocking my input source and output sink changed from the standard sound interface to the easyeffects source/sink. Therefore, I always have to change them back to the external interface.
So how can I stop pipewire from stopping the sound output when locking my screen and how to stop it from changing the standard sink/source when unlocking?
Steps I already tried:
- changing to another sound interface → no change
- exchange pipewire media-session manager for wireplumber → no change
- activating my onboard audio: after unlocking it sometimes changes to the onboard audio → different result
Currently running services:
systemctl --user list-unit-files | grep pipewire pipewire-media-session.service enabled enabled pipewire-pulse.service enabled enabled pipewire-session-manager.service bad enabled pipewire.service enabled enabled pipewire-pulse.socket enabled enabled pipewire.socket enabled enabled
