PulseEffects stopped working after the recent huge stable update

I can hear audio, but PulseEffects no longer shows anything in the “Applications” list, even while audio is playing. I can’t use its equalizer any more all of a sudden. I didn’t change anything myself. There was no pacnew file related to PulseEffects from the big stable update recently. How do I make PulseEffects see applications playing audio now?

Does this also happen if you create another user, log in there and play something???

  • If yes, please uninstall PuleEffects completely, removing all settings and then install it again:

    pamac --no-save remove pulseeffects
    pamac install pulseeffects
  • If no, please report back.


please post response to

pacmd dump

to show if the pulseeffects module is loaded and set as default-sink
