[SOLVED] I use pipewire and sound doesnt work in XFCE unti I do xfce4-panel -r

I used this guide to install pipewire:https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?id=5867

I checked, it actually works but xfce4-panel is late to update that. So there is an sound icon with x on it, meaning like it doesn't work. Then I do xfce4-panel -r then it works again.

How to make it so I don't have to type xfce4-panel -r everytime?

You can create a desktop entry ~/.config/autostart/xfce4-panel-reload.desktop containing something like this:

[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Name=Xfce4-panel-reload
Exec=/bin/sh -c 'sleep 2;xfce4-panel -r'
StartupNotify=false
Terminal=false

Another way might be using a post-login script in your login manager, but it should wait for xfce4 to be running:

until p=$(pidof xfsettingsd)
do
    sleep 1
done
xfce4-panel -r

If you work systematically, things will come by itself (Lev D. Landau)

That worked. Thanks. Although this is just a temporary fix. It might get borked in the future releases.
