On my newly configured desktop (Ryzen 3200g, Realtel ALC892 audio), Pulseeffects is not connecting to the audio. Spectrum does not show, and of course none of the individual audio enhancements has any effect.
The same hardware works with Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.
Also, there is no problem with Pulseeffects on my laptop (i3 based).
How do I find out why Pulseeffects is not connecting?
I think I was not clear. The status on Pulseeffects is:
Desktop - AMD Ryzen + ALC892, Endeavour OS - not working
Desktop - AMD Ryzen + ALC892, Ubunti 20.04 - working
Laptop - i3 4th gen based, Endeavour OS - working
If not you upgraded to pipewire, you most likely need to install pulseeffect 4 and remove 5 on the machine where it’s not working.
A little more here:
It’s still possible to use pulseeffects with pulseaudio
Note for users that did not moved from Pulseaudio to PipeWire
From version 5.0.0 onward PulseEffects needs PipeWire. Pulseaudio users need to instal one of the 4.x releases or building a package directly from our legacy Pulseaudio branch
https://github.com/wwmm/pulseeffects/tree/pulseaudio-legacy. Arch Linux users can also use the PKGBUILD on the same branch. This branch will receive updates for critical bugs as time goes by. So if PipeW…
@HCHR. I am seeing the spectrum now in Pulseeffects after installing the legacy version that you suggested.
However, none of the sound effects can be activated. All sliders are greyed out. What could possibly be the reason, I wonder.
You will have to install the lsp-plugins package, and maybe the calf package as well depending on the effects you want to use.
@skaffen , thanks. Let me try and I will let you know the results.
Sorry, I have been quite busy making my desktop work-worthy! Got very little time to follow this up.
I had initially installed the git version. And that gave the spectrum but plugin controls were all greyed out.
Subsequently I installed EOS with XFCE (earlier was Gnome). Also I selected the non-git version, i.e. pulseeffects-legacy from aur. That is working, so I am satisfied!
I also found that the calf and lsp-plugins were getting installed as part of the pulseeffects install, so missing plugins should not be a problem, IMO.
