[Solved] Where do I get pactl utility?

Background: I recently fixed several Pipewire problems by uninstalling all Pipewire packages (that I had) and reinstalling them. On that front, everything is now working well.

But I no longer have pactl, which came in handy from time to time. And I cannot figure out where it comes from in order to get it back. I thought it would be part of Pulse Audio, but it does not show up in the package contents.

How do I find it?

pacman -Fy
pacman -F pactl

No, it didn't "fix" anything. It just shifted the brokeness one space to the right. - jasonwryan

Ok, pactl is working now. It comes with package libpulse.

Thanks you.
