[Solved] xdg-desktop-portal-gnome 43.1 > 44.1 breaks desktop portal

I updated to the new version yesterday and when I booted my machine today audio was not working and all apps that are depending on the portal do wait for a timeout until they start like pavucontrol and firefox.

I do not know if this is a misconfiguration on my end although I did not configure anything *that I know of* for "pipewire".

Here is a journalctl snippet showing the problem:

Mai 08 16:59:53 imai.cxhl.de xdg-desktop-portal-gnome[5164]: error: Failed to initialize display server connection: Unsupported or missing session type ''

Mai 08 16:54:36 imai.cxhl.de systemd[961]: Failed to start Portal service.

the issue vanishes once I downgrade to 43.1 and restart the systemd user unit xdg-desktop-portal-gnome.service.

Any idea how to fix this or is this just a "broken" package or a configuration issue on my part?

If it helps I have an USB audio interface connected. It's the Behringer UMC204HD.

Thanks seth!

I did search the forum for xdg-desktop-portal-gnome but it did not find the other thread.

Marking as solved, in case others do stumble upon this one.
