[opensuse-factory] Attention: XFCE: PulseAudio will be enabled as default on TW

this is a head-up announcement for XFCE users: as discussed in the
previous thread, we'll enable PulseAudio as default for XFCE on
Tumbleweed. The SR's were already accepted, so the change will appear
in a TW snapshot in near future.

What does this mean for you?

* If you already enabled PA fully on your system:

Fine, no need of change, of course.
As a bonus, now you can uninstall xfce4-panel-plugin-mixer and
xfce4-mixer, since there is no hard dependency any longer.

* If you're using still only ALSA-native (xfce4-panel-plugin-mixer &
xfce4-mixer), and you're willing to switch to PulseAudio:

At best, enable pulse plugin instead of mixer plugin.
On the taskbar, right button context menu, Panel -> Add New Item

After that, you can uninstall xfce4-panel-plugin-mixer and
xfce4-mixer packages as well.

* If you still don't want to switch to PA:

OK, for whatever reason.
There are a few ways to keep away from PA.

A: Run "setup-pulseaudio --disable" once as root, and re-login.
You'll keep pulseaudio and other packages on your system, but
they are not really used.

B: Alternatively, uninstall and lock pulseaudio & co.
% zypper rm -u pulseaudio pavucontrol
% zypper al pulseaudio pavucontrol
