Long time lurker, first time poster here!
I am running the i3 community edition of Manjaro (unstable, latest kernel) on a Thinkpad X1E. Until recently everything have been working perfectly. However, I have run into an issue with pulseaudio. It suddently stops working, and when launching "pavucontrol" it is just spinning endlessly. The only way I've found to fix the issue is deleting the pulse folder (~/.config/pulse) and relogging. Pulse then start working for a while before it's back to the same issue.
I have tried restarting pulse from the terminal with "pulseaudio -k" and "pulseaudio -D" to no avail.
Any tips or pointers in the right direction are most welcome as this i becoming annoying.
