I’ve just installed Fedora 36 (KDE) on a system where I use the attached HDMI device as the default playback device. This setting isn’t persistent across reboots, at least not every time.
I’ve come across similar descriptions while googling the issue, but no actual solution. What can I do to make the playback device persistent across reboots?
As I’m new to Fedora, I’m not sure if there’s a terminal command I can run on login, which sets the output device. Edit I’ve read elsewhere, that one could use pactl to set playback device. I have no pactl installed. I’ve set up an additional test system and install pactl, but with pactl list short sinks, doesn’t quite provide the same options as I have in the settings window for the playback devices.
As suggested elsewhere, this doesn’t seem to be a viable option for me:
pactl list short sinks
pactl set-default-sink <sink
Silverblue is the Gnome version. Kinoite is the KDE version. AFAIK, there shouldn’t be any difference between those and regular Fedora Linux for how pipewire, etc. works. I only brought it up because that’s the only KDE environment I myself currently have.
