Common Desktop Environment (sound) - Asahi - sound

I’m using CDE (CDE - Common Desktop Environment download | as my desktop. I’m in trouble starting the sound stack (pipewire, pipewire-pulse, wireplumber) and pasystray as systray client. Sometimes sound works (in firefox). I can enable the x11-bell module and it works, but there is no sound in vlc/smplayer.
Any help??
Regards, Bernd

There is another port of CDE that seems a bit more modern underneath called NsCDE. Not so Common Desktop Environment. There are arm .deb files plus source is available.

NsCDE is packaged in Fedora already.

Thanks. Good to know.
