I did not have this issue last time I ran Arch / Endeavour (Xfce 4.16) nor when I was running Fedora 34 (Gnome 40).
But this time, after installing Pipewire, I cannot set default output. It doesn’t remember my settings after reboot and defaults to the sound card instead of the headphones (not bluetooth, so it’s not a connectivity issue).
pavucontrol then set the default (“fallback”) output device?
It ignores that setting completely.
Not at a PC but did you install pipeline-pulse?
Installed components are:
is media session as --user enabled ?
Stupid question: How do I check?
systemctl --user status pipewire-media-session
>> systemctl --user status pipewire-media-session

This MIGHT have been fixed with today’s update of Pipewire…
Yes, but also:
11:08:44 <wtay> I would want to do a new release soon, 0.3.29 was messy
Edit: 0.3.30 is in the repos.
