I’ve been using FMOD a little on a system with pipewire installed but no pulseaudio and it’s been working without any issue so far despite the deb package requiring the pulseaudio dependency.
The problem is, that this unmet dependency is breaking the updates with apt and complicates the installation of FMOD itself. If pipewire-pulse is indeed working properly with FMOD, would it be possible to take it into account in the deb package?
For anyone else having this problem, you can work around it by editing fmodstudio’s dependencies in
/var/lib/dpkg/status and replace
pulseaudio | pipewire-pulse
For reference mine looks like this:
