PipeWire nightly builds from the projects git master. Use at your own risk.

Installation Instructions


Add the repository by executing sudo dnf copr enable mfrey/pipewire-nightly. Then either update your installed packages if PipeWire is already installed or install PipeWire.

Use PipeWire instead of PulseAudio

Install required packages

Installing pipewire-pulseaudio replaces pulseaudio as drop-in replacement:

sudo dnf install --best --allowerasing pipewire-pulseaudio

If there is a dependency error (e.g. with gnome-shell), PulseAudio may be uninstalled using RPM:

sudo rpm -e --nodeps pulseaudio

Enable the PipeWire replacement (run as user):

systemctl --user enable pipewire-pulse.socket

Reboot and validate

Reboot the system and check the output of pactl info. It should show pipewire-0 as server string.

Use PipeWire instead of JACK

Installing pipewire-jack-audio-connection-kit replaces jack-audio-connection-kit as drop-in replacement:

sudo dnf install --best --allowerasing pipewire-jack-audio-connection-kit

If there is a dependency issue with uninstalling JACK, it may be uninstalled using RPM:

sudo rpm -e --nodeps jack-audio-connection-kit

Enabling Bluetooth support

As of 0.3.16 the bluez5 module (necessary for Bluetooth audio playback) is disabled by default to not conflict with PulseAudio.

To enable this module, append -e bluez5 to the last line of /etc/pipewire/pipewire.conf, which is starting the session manager.
