Pipewire error

#1 Post by mm3100 »

Hello everyone,
After upgrading to Bullseye I started getting this error

Code: Select all

pipewire[1242]: Failed to receive portal pid: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NameHasNoOwner: Could not get PID of name 'org.freedesktop.portal.Desktop': no such name
Googling didn't help me much, but I tried to install xdg-desktop-portal and xdg-desktop-portal-kde as I use KDE. After that I would get these messages

Code: Select all

pipewire[1242]: Failed to receive portal pid: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NameHasNoOwner: Could not get PID of name 'org.freedesktop.portal.Desktop': no such name
org.freedesktop.impl.portal.desktop.kde[1480]: xdp-kde: Desktop portal registered successfully
I am asking if there are some misconfiguration or missing components on my end, as I am unfamiliar with both of those? After some time I would randomly get pipewire errors in journal complaining about having a broken pipe, which is obvious since it failed to start.

Hi
Have you looked at the wiki about PipeWire? Looks like there have been a few installation changes in Bullseye.
I simulated installing it on a testing system which shows it needs these packages:

Code: Select all

# apt install -s pipewire

  libspa-0.2-modules pipewire-bin
Suggested packages:
