[SOLVED]PulseAudio EQ (qpaeq) doesn't work

So I can't get the built-in systemwide PulseAudio equalizer "qpaeq" to work. I have installed all the required dependencies but if I try to load it it throws the error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/qpaeq", line 560, in <module>
    main()
  File "/usr/bin/qpaeq", line 555, in main
    qpaeq_main=QPaeq()
  File "/usr/bin/qpaeq", line 80, in __init__
    self.set_connection()
  File "/usr/bin/qpaeq", line 232, in set_connection
    self.sinks=manager_props.Get(self.manager_iface,'EqualizedSinks')
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/dbus/proxies.py", line 68, in __call__
    return self._proxy_method(*args, **keywords)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/dbus/proxies.py", line 143, in __call__
    **keywords)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/dbus/connection.py", line 630, in call_blocking
    message, timeout)
dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: Method "Get" with signature "ss" on interface "org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties" doesn't exist

And if I add 

load-module module-equalizer-sink

in $HOME/.pulse/default.pa PulseAudio fails to start completely. I tried this on Chakra too and the exactly same happened. PulseAudio was compiled without support for qpaeq in both Kubuntu and Pardus if I'm not mistaken so I couldn't try it there. How should I proceed?

Same problem here.

As root :

[root@B43EDI xavier]# qpaeq
No protocol specified
qpaeq: cannot connect to X server :0

As non-root :

[xavier@B43EDI ~]$ qpaeq

I applied what it said in the wiki. Worked fine.

Hah. Forgot to mark this as solved. The wiki solved the issue and it failed for me only because I forgot to copy one line or something.
