Downgrading PulseAudio with downgrade.sh

Original post is here eklausmeier.goip.de/blog/2017/01-30-downgrading-pulseaudio-with-downgrade-sh.

Just upgraded PulseAudio from 9.0-1 => 10.0-2, which was no good, as I was left with no sound.

The bash script downgrade.sh given in Github by Gordian Edenhofer saved the day. Sound is back. The script is for Arch Linux.


downgrade.sh libpulse pulseaudio pulseaudio-bluetooth

From now on I have to use

pacman -Syu --ignore pulseaudio --ignore libpulse --ignore pulseaudio-bluetooth

to not lose the good version and getting the infected version again.

Added 13-Jul-2023: There is a downgrade shell script in the AUR repository.
