No audio until mute/unmute
Version, Distribution, Desktop Environment:
- pipewire 1:0.3.24-1
- Arch Linux
- i3-wm 4.19.2-1
Description of Problem:
I don't get any audio after booting my system, I tried different programs (mpv, pw-play, speaker-test, etc). They all show as playing the audio but no sound comes from my speakers, until I mute and unmute with alsamixer.
The same problem can be reproduced when toggling the card "Off" and back to the card in pavucontrol (Configuration -> Profile -> Switch to Off -> Switch back to the card).
Then that would produce no audio with e.g. mpv/pw-play until doing a mute/unmute in alsamixer or pavucontrol.
Steps to Reproduce:
- reboot your system or switch your card to Off and back to the card in pavucontrol.
- attempt to play some audio with pw-play or mpv.
- notice that no audio comes from your speaker, try mute/unmute to fix it.
No audio comes from my speakers until mute/unmute.
Audio works all the time, without having to resort to workarounds like mute/unmute.
