Description of Problem: Can't change default sink once set to bluetooth
How Reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
- change default sink to bluez
- try to change default sink to another using pactl
Actual Results: nothing happens, bluez sink is still the default one
Expected Results: another sink should have be the dafault sink now
pw-mon while trying to change sink from bluez to another
In my specific case, I can switch default sink using
pavucontrol which works totally fine.
Another weird thing is that if the sink(#N) is non bluetooth one and is the default-sink at the moment, running
pactl set-default-sink #N changes the default sink to bluetooth sink(#M)
pactl set-default-sink #M also changes the default sink to bluetooth as expected. Once switched to bluez sink, I can't change it anymore using pacmd
