abarbarian Posted November 7, 2022 Share Posted November 7, 2022 (edited) Pulseaudio has been replaced with pipewire on Arch set ups. It is supposed to be a painless change. Not on my Arch it ain't. I did an update and it seems everything is installed, Quote pipewire-1:0.3.59-5 is up to date -- reinstalling pipewire-pulse-1:0.3.59-5 is up to date -- reinstalling pipewire-alsa-1:0.3.59-5 is up to date -- reinstalling lib32-pipewire-1:0.3.59-2 is up to date -- reinstalling The guide says to try, $ pactl info ... Server Name: PulseAudio (on PipeWire 0.3.32) ... I do and get -->pactl info Server Name: pulseaudio The guide says Quote Install pipewire-pulse. It will replace pulseaudio and pulseaudio-bluetooth. Reboot, re-login or start the pipewire-pulse.service user unit to see the effect. I try and get Put brain in gear before pressing enter20:36:10-->Mon Nov 07-->~ -->systemctl start pipewire-pulse.service ==== AUTHENTICATING FOR org.freedesktop.systemd1.manage-units ==== Authentication is required to start 'pipewire-pulse.service'. Authenticating as: bloodaxe Password: ==== AUTHENTICATION COMPLETE ==== Failed to start pipewire-pulse.service: Unit pipewire-pulse.service not found. So what the heck is going on . It seems all pipewire stuff is installed ok when I check with pacman. However all is not ok as systemd does not seem to see it. I am well and truly hacked off. Why could they leave stuff as it was or give an option to change over if you wanted to. Progress my big fat ar*** Oh an I have rebooted several times. An tried updateing everything too.
