Devuan testing minimal install pulseaudio muted at login

Hello,

I  have made Devuan Beowulf network core install then I have upgraded to Devuan Chimaera with no problem.
After reboot I  have install xfce4, pavucontrol, pulseaudio, and lightdm.
But  then pulse audio starts always muted. I  need to turn  pulseaudio  on  to have  sound. Sound  then works  fine.
But I would like to  have  pulse audio unmuted  at login as it is in general instalation.

What  am I  missing?

Hi Lars,

followed that guide after install, therefore I put question on the forum.
That guide did not help.

Greetings
Jiri

Re: Devuan testing minimal install pulseaudio muted at login

Was PulseAudio unmuted at boot under beowulf? Things break sometimes in the development branches, hence the name "testing".

Re: Devuan testing minimal install pulseaudio muted at login

Pulse was not installed.

stable core install > upgrade to testing > xfce4, pulse and etc. installation

I have tried the same way in Debian, result is identical.

But when I run tasksel (Devuan or  Debian) and then pick desktop installation - common installation (and install another stuff that I do not want to have.), pulse is activated at logon after restart.

There must be some package, settings which activates/unmute pulse at logon.

Re: Devuan testing minimal install pulseaudio muted at login

It's really a sad mess this, PulseAudio does not offer anything which were not available in the first place; PA is just an unnecessary layer!
More of a mess comes from development thinking this is the future.
