In the latest update (Qonos), I am facing a weird problem regarding the xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin. It does not correctly control the microphone sensitivity as well as its on/off state. To properly change the microphone sensitivity, I need to open the pavucontrol audio mixer, then go to input devices, and change the settings from there. Any changes made from the plugin (regarding the microphone), do not sink with those on the pavucontrol. I am using a laptop and the latest 5.15 kernel, but it does occur on the latest LTS 5.10 as well. Previous updates did not have this issue, maybe pipewire related? Does anyone else face the same problem?
P.S. Just to clarify, I am referring to the “volume” icon in the task bar in XFCE4.
Thanks a bunch!
