A new bugfix release 2.3.8 of the Sound Switcher Indicator is out.
This version fixes two serious issues in the indicator.
- The app could handle stream switching incorrectly in a case the sound card had multiple sources or sinks (as PulseAudio calls them). In certain cases that would even render the switcher completely dysfunctional (#107).
- Pressing a shortcut bound to a port on an offline device would cause the indicator to try to switch to that non-existent device (#118).
Resolving the above, particularly the first issue, took me hours of digging into the code and experimenting with PulseAudio profiles. From which I can conclude PulseAudio’s profile support is far from flawless yet. Sometimes switching profiles a few times causes the sound server to totally break down, which you can only mend by restarting it (
And, last but not least, we have 300 stars on GitHub and 2100+ snap package users!
