Referring to tho posting of Josef Reidinger on the opensuse-factory list
(Drop of yast2-sound; 25-01-2023), yast sound was the only way I had to
get my bluetooth headphone working. Just touch the modules, and restart
them, and the bluetooth device appeared in the list of sound devices (it
was always found as a bluetooth device already).
It was a little annoying, but since I reboot the machine only one in 2-3
weeks, it was not a big problem.
So for me, it's a real pity yast-sound has gone.
In the aforementioned discussion, pipewire was mentioned as a way to
solve these things, at least, that was how understood it. So I looked
for it in yast-software (hope that's not on the vanishing list 😁), to
find a lot of pipewire was installed already. qpwgraph was not
installed, so I installed it.
But, is it that I am on pipewire now? pactl gives

I started qpwgraph to find a nice looking bunch of loose hanging blocks,
which you can relocate, without documentation of how to use it. Two of
the blocks show my headphone, so that's progress I suppose.
Looked for documentation of pipewire, to find a bunch of examples of
programs I don't know what to do with.
So how does a plain user enable a bluetooth headphone in this situation?
Thins are getting rather complicated....
Any help appreciated!
