Pactl command not found in Fedora Silverblue 34

I know Fedora 34 uses Pipewire, but I need pactl for x11docker to work with sound on some apps.

Furthermore, I plan to use pavucontrol in the future. Is it possible? It involves switch in-and-out of JACK.

Try installing pipewire-utils and/or pulseaudio-utils.

It’s pulseaudio-utils. Thank you.

As fast as:

dnf provides pactl

pulseaudio-utils-14.2-3.fc34.x86_64 : PulseAudio sound server utilities
Repo        : fedora
Matched from:
Filename    : /usr/bin/pactl

This is useful when one knows a filename and wants to find what package (installed or not) provides this file.
