I have Manjaro Xfce, with bspwm on the side. When I login to xfce, everyting works fine. When I login to bswpm, I get "establishing connection to PulseAudio". It never gets done.
However, if I log into xfce to begin with, log out, and then login to bspwm, pulse works.
Sounds works, however, using Alsa, but anything which uses Pulse does not work, including sound in Firefox.
