I’ve installed EndeavourOS and am currently running into a sound issue.
I have a Intel I7-8700K, a NVidia GTX 1080 and 32 GB of RAM (DDR4).
I’m using my motherboard’s audio jack to plug a small audio system and using USB to connect a preamp which powers my headphones.
With both devices, I get no sound and it seems that Youtube refuses to play any videos because of this (I’ve tried Youtube with Konqueror and Firefox, same result).
I had a Mint Cinnamon OS previously and it worked flawlessly, but since I’ve been on Endeavour, no luck… I played a bit with the audio configs trying to install Pulsemeeter (still no luck with it, always getting an error when starting it), but I’m not sure if I’ve broke something. I’ve installed pulseaudio, which, I think, can cause problems with pipewire.
I see now. The KDE dependencies shouldn’t be removed, if Plasma is your DE. So try uninstalling pulseaudio completely and reinstall pipewire completely… don’t forget to reboot and see how it works from there. Your pulsemeeter probably won’t work then. You might have to look for an alternative there.
Pavucontrol (Pulse Audio Volume Control) will still be there with pipewire and without polseaudio. In pavucontrol, you can configure your audio sinks under the config-tab, upper right corner… >
