Description John Dallahan 2017-05-29 14:16:19 UTC
kde-plasma/plasma-pa requires the emerge of media-sound/pulseaudio even if you have apulse installed. I think a "apulse" USE flag should be added which removes this dependency.

Can you confirm that it builds without pulseaudio? Or, if not, works at runtime with apulse and w/o pulseaudio?
Comment 2 John Dallahan 2017-05-31 18:04:04 UTC
I tried building it with pulseaudio installed from the git first, but CMake expects pulseaudio to be installed. I then emerged pulseaudio and built plasma-pa. I then unmerged pulseaudio and linked apulse back to /usr/lib/ and it didn't work because it expects some functions in that are only available as incomplete stubs in apulse (only in master) and in pulseaudio 10.0. As such, plasma-pa cannot be used without pulseaudio.

Thanks for investigating this.
