UPDATE: After upgrade to Debian testing (trixie/sid): plasmoids still don't work, KDE doesn't find sound devices.

ps -aux shows pipewire is running.  Kmix, that I had to install as it
didn't come installed by default, only shows the dummy output device.
play <file>.wav goes through the motions but no sound comes out.  It's
probably sending the audio to the dummy device.  The audio plasmoid that
was installed by default shows a red line through the speaker icon.
Kmix doesn't show that, but only shows the dummy device.
