Description of problem:
After installation of pipewire-pulseaudio, the audio is missing from the system tray area of the panel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. sudo dnf --allowerasing swap pulseaudio pipewire-pulseaudio
2. Log out and log in to a Plasma session again.
No audio control in the system tray. (Pavucontrol seems to still work.)
An audio control as before.
The same problem apparently appeared in Gnome too, see bug 1912062.
Triaging to plasma-pa component
Um, is plasma-pa even installed anymore?
Pretty sure it still has a hard dependency on pulseaudio still (on f33), so it getting removed would certainly explain why the applet is not showing.
FYI, you'll need (at least) plasma-pa-5.20.4-2.fc33 to test this properly
And, apparently, pipewire-pulseaudio isn't enabled by default on f33 (probably should be), so I also needed to do:
systemctl enable --user --now pipewire-pulse
Then, I see the audio applet working on my f33 box.
FEDORA-2021-29d7d49890 has been submitted as an update to Fedora 33. https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2021-29d7d49890
FEDORA-2021-29d7d49890 has been pushed to the Fedora 33 stable repository.
If problem still persists, please make note of it in this bug report.
Checking the DNF history, plasma-pa was indeed removed as part of the swap transaction from pulseaudio to pipewire-pulseaudio. I didn't realise that was the system tray control, but after installing plasma-pa-5.20.4-2.fc33.x86_64 it is indeed back. Thanks for a very quick analysis and fix!
The missing activation of pipewire-pulseaudio mentioned in comment 4 I believe is a small mistake in the packaging, see bug 1912520.
