Apart of libopenaptx, I believe also libldac is needed. I asked the dev for confirmation here.

New dependency: libopenaptx, I haven't tested yet but it's probably not being linked against pipewire, just the bluez spa plugin, so it might be possible to set it as makedepend and optdpend instead.

Hi, can you at least consider enabling the gstreamer plugin and keep it as a separate split package? It would benefit other people that want to use this package to test PipeWire since they do not need to worry about a missing dependency of gnome-shell. You can of course still install without gstreamer yourself, and there is no need for you to "support" gstreamer in any way.

Since I haven't been even able to install pipewire-git (due to the alsa-card-profiles conflict), I've been using the pipewire PKGBUILD from the ABS, modified to pull from the master branch rather than from a tag. Basing a new pipewire-git PKGBUILD on the pipewire PKGBUILD is probably a good idea.

Sorry @katt, you arrive late to the discussion. Maybe in other time. Greetings

@sl1pkn07 You should've named it pipewire-sl1pkn07-git then, to enable the options that suits you.

Please don't waste everyone elses time, greetings.

@sl1pkn07 thank you for updating the package.
I'm also not a fan of gst and if you're not building in a chroot then building with it enabled would be disruptive.
In any case, the pulse server starting to look pretty nice, it only missing volume state saving and auto-switching to the default sink (and streams) when connecting BT headphones.

As maintainer of this package, I enable or disable the options that I think are convenient

if you not like, you can create you own package with your needs. this is AUR, you can do it

please. don't waste my time

WT# are you saying @sl1pkn07? This is AUR and not sl1pkn07's personal git!

ArchLinux guidelines dictates to keep all package's as closest to the upstream project settings and defaults.

If you're not interested in keeping the arch's philosphy or keep the project to your own usage means, then you're the one to orphanage this one and create create a GitHub repo...

I'll ticket the orphanage request for you!

With the new pulse server and its Systemd service and socket, pipewire-pulse-git should have pulseaudio in its provides array.

The main developer of Pipewire is also maintaining the Fedora packaging and it ships the GStreamer module and not building the FFmpeg one at all, so it seems like the GStreamer module is recommended to use.
I suggest having them both enabled here but split them into their own packages, so anyone who wants to avoid gst on the host system can build in a chroot which is pretty easy with aurutils.

Suggested changes are here:
