Do you know if i can get rid of gstreamer1.0-pulseaudio, libpulse0 and libpulse-mainloop-glib0 without running into issues with software that might depend on them?

Simulate a removal:

apt -s purge gstreamer1.0-pulseaudio libpulse{,-mainloop-glib}0

I think the Xfce desktop metapackage includes libpulse0 as a dependency, check earlier in the thread for details.

I don't think GNU's IMP needs PA :-)

As for the other programs, try it and see. I'm sure I've had audacious & vlc working without PA, and QEMU.

Re: Why are pulseaudio files present in Devuan?

empty@E485:~ $ apt-cache rdepends gimp | grep pulse                                      
1|empty@E485:~ $

I've definitely run GIMP without PA.

I would try re-installing it again afterwards, that should work.

I'm stuck there.. I have removed every part pulse. Except libpulse0 if I am running gimp.
I have installed around dependencies however, libpulse0 is hard wired into gimp as far as I can tell.
I tried

 apt install gimp libpulse0- 

fails to install. It's quite unfortunate tongue Removing pulse sometimes breaks Xfce metapackage. But if you install it in parts it doesn't seem to need it at all for xfce4.

But libsdl1.2debian requires libpulse0 and I can't seem to get around that. Which gimp needs.

Not in my tests.

The xfce4 metapackage lists xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin as a dependency but PA is only in the Recommends list for that package (and even that is only for beowulf, the ASCII version doesn't list it all) and so can be removed without breaking things.

But libpulse0 won't be used if PulseAudio isn't running. It's a bit like the situation with libsystemd0 in Devuan's initial release.
