[SOLVED] linphone alsa removing libpulse-mainloop-glib0 breaks mate

I tried to follow
https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?id=3904
Having a problem debugging linphone, because no microphone sound,
according this
https://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/linphone/
Linphone 🇬🇧 🇫🇷 ist ein SIP-basiertes, videofähiges Internet-Telefon mit einer GTK+-Oberfläche, das die Soundarchitektur ALSA nutzt.

I discovered that linphone uses pulse libraries same as mate-setting and mate-volume and firefox-esr and chromium

long story short result : trying to remove these libraries breaks task-mate-desktop, Docs below

a) what are the consequences of having these package in the system but not pulseaudio server ?
b) How can I avoid that progs such as linphone , firefox, chromium search to attach to a pulseaudio subsystem and use only alsa?
c) or is some configuration possible to hide the pulse libraries
d) is it a bug  or "it is a bug!" ?

I still have package libpulse0 in my system.
I still have package libpulse-mainloop-glib0 in my system.

apt-file search libpulsecommon
libpulse0: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/pulseaudio/libpulsecommon-14.2.so

aptitude remove libpulse0

Re: [SOLVED] linphone alsa removing libpulse-mainloop-glib0 breaks mate

None whatsoever. If pulseaudio is not started then the libraries will not be used.

The programs will use whichever sound system is available. I know Devuan's FF & Chromium works just fine without PA but I haven't tried linphone. The only potential issue would be for multiple audio sources playing at the same time, which can be tricky to manage with pure ALSA.

d) is it a bug

No.

And in future please use code tags when posting terminal output and please prepend all commands with LC_ALL=C to make them output in English. Thanks.
