After my second reboot the issue suddenly fixed itself. I’m still keeping this post up though as it would be nice to know more about why this happened and perhaps how I can fix it if reboots don’t work. After all, it did require more than one reboot which is rarely a good sign.
Just a few minutes ago, I was doing musicians ear training in my Windows 10 VM installed in VMware with the app EarMaster Cloud. While I was working the audio suddenly started getting buggy so I decided to reboot my machine. After the reboot, I can’t seem to get a connection to PulseAudio (I’m assuming pipewire-pulse) with pavucontrol and if a program tries to play a sound it breaks.
I’ve tried restarting it with these commands and only get errors which I don’t understand. Everything is also installed on latest version
[runarcn@endeavour ~]$ sudo systemctl restart pipewire.service Failed to restart pipewire.service: Unit pipewire.service not found. [runarcn@endeavour ~]$ sudo systemctl --user restart pipewire.service Failed to connect to bus: No medium found [runarcn@endeavour ~]$ pacman -Q pipewire pipewire-alsa pipewire-audio pipewire-jack pipewire-pulse pipewire 1:0.3.70-1 pipewire-alsa 1:0.3.70-1 pipewire-audio 1:0.3.70-1 pipewire-jack 1:0.3.70-1 pipewire-pulse 1:0.3.70-1
I’ve never encountered this issue on this install and I don’t know how to go forward. Any and all help is greatly appreciated as I either need to have this fixed by tomorrow or reinstall my entire OS which I really don’t want to.
