paprefs does not apply changes to /etc/pulse/
Last modified: 2016-08-08 03:46:07 EDT
Description of problem:
Trying to make my music play on the desktop that is connected to the audio amplifier, following these instructions
i've found that was worked fine in Fedora 21 no longer works in Fedora 22 or 23.
Reading here and there i've understand that paprefs it's a gui editor for files in /etc/pulse/ (more exactly default.pa). Please correct me if i'm wrong. However, comparing the files before and after making changes in paprefs, i've found that their md5sum remains the same, even if in paprefs changes seems to be "memorized" somehow.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
latest tested is
Steps to Reproduce:
1.display md5sum of files in /etc before change
2.change things in paprefs
3.display the new md5sums
sums remains constant
It does not matter if i run paprefs as root or user.
Also, after reboot, paprefs has still memorized those changes but the files in /etc/pulse/ are still unchanged.
paprefs does not edit configuration files but uses GConf to "memory" settings.
If you enable the checkbox in paprefs and run the "pactl list modules | grep zeroconf" command, you should see that the "module-zeroconf" is loaded. Could you please confirm that it works ?
pactl list modules | grep zeroconf
returns nothing, in fedora 23.
but i'll reboot and try again.
ok, after reboot and enabling both settings, i see publish and discover modules.
next will be to test if the setup really works. unfortunately this will be left for tomorrow (hopefully).
i can confirm that it's working now. in the meantime i've upgraded the computers to f24 but it's ok for me.
thank you for your help.
Great. Glad to help. Closing the bug if it's ok for you.
Sure. However i feel that currentrelease is a more appropriate reason for closure. Is this ok for you too?
It's definitely ok for me.
