Any solution .......

im no expert at all on this, but it seem like this should be running.
have you looked into pulseaudio -h
one option listed is pulseaudio --start
i would try to start it and if its not working you could always run pulseaudio --kill to kill the running daemon.

this is my inxi -Faz

Sound Server-3: PulseAudio v: 14.2 running: yes  
Sound Server-4: PipeWire v: 0.3.30 running: no

hope this helps :crossed_fingers:

Pulseaudio not running dosen't seem like a problem because pipewire is running. Isn't pipewire meant as a replacement for pulseaudio?

from what i read, PipeWire is another replacement for pulseaudio,,

PipeWire is a new low-level multimedia framework. It aims to offer capture and playback for both audio and video with minimal latency and support for PulseAudio, JACK, ALSA and GStreamer-based applications.

there is also a section on the Wiki about how to get Microphone Detection working

Thanks for your replay but the issue remain the same
When i try to start pulse then the resaults is:

pulseaudio --start
pulseaudio may be found in the following packages:
extra/pulseaudio 14.2-3 /usr/bin/pulseaudio

Thanks

That means you don't have pulseaudio installed.

(SOLVED)
Thank you.
I try to install the pulse from Garuda assistant but for some reason untick the pulse. So i try to install from add/remove and now it's working fine.
