  • Getting Pipewire to Work for You [The KISS Guide]
    2 projects | /r/voidlinux | 5 Jun 2023
    I did some digging and found this repository with some examples for runit scripts, but they needed a little bit of adjusting; specifically they make use of the deprecated pipewire-media-session. After adjusting them, I symlinked them in to my runsvdir and … still nothing! At this point, I almost decided to just go back to the shell script and let it go, but the next day I was picking at the problem again and found that the approach for per-user services as described in the void docs puts your user services into an environment that is isolated from your user session. You can take a look at the env of a process in htop, and if you look at any of your usual user-processes you'll probably see a long list of environment variables, but the user-level runsv process started by the system-level runit only knows about the variables you export in /etc/sv/runsvdir-your-username/run like HOME and USER. This effectively hamstrings services that need to run like other "normal" user processes.
