I’ve made the (possibly dumb) move to pipewire as the audio system on my Linux box, and I’m a bit puzzled why Mixxx doesn’t recognise that Jack is available as an option.
I can play audio back with "mplayer -ao jack " and it works fine, other applications like audacious and qmmp can use jack audio output, and they work. But Mixxx claims Jack isn’t running when it starts up.
“jack server is not running or cannot be started”
I’ve had a quick look at the code and it seems like portaudio is doing the available audio api detection, but for some reason it doesn’t see pipewire providing Jack. The portaudio devs seem to think it shouldn’t be a problem as it is.
It’s not a game breaker because I can still use ALSA as an option, but I was wondering if anyone was aware of the problem.
