pulseaudio and paprefs problem

Hi! For a couple of weeks now I’m getting this message when I try to zypper dup:

Problem: paprefs-0.9.10+20180501.534d20a-1.1.x86_64 requires pulseaudio-module-gsettings, but this requirement cannot be provided
  not installable providers: pulseaudio-module-gsettings-12.2-1.1.i586[download.opensuse.org-oss]
                   pulseaudio-module-gsettings-12.2-1.1.x86_64[download.opensuse.org-oss]
 Solution 1: deinstallation of paprefs-0.9.10-14.11.x86_64
 Solution 2: deinstallation of pulseaudio-module-gconf-12.0-1.1.x86_64
 Solution 3: keep obsolete paprefs-0.9.10-14.11.x86_64
 Solution 4: break paprefs-0.9.10+20180501.534d20a-1.1.x86_64 by ignoring some of its dependencies

I’ve chosen (3) to keep the obsolete package, but I was wondering if this situation can be solved in a more gracious way, without losing audio abilities or breaking anything.

My repositories are:


 1 | Packman_Essentials               | Packman_Essentials         | Yes     | (r ) Yes  | Yes    
 2 | Science                          | Science                    | Yes     | (r ) Yes  | Yes

which I haven’t changed since the last install.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

While this post is not bringing a solution (I would suggest option 1, because it seems that a fallback onj an earlier version is made, not uncommon on TW, but please wait for confirmation of others!) I would like to suggest a few improvements on your posting of computer output.

While the usage of the CODE tags is technically correct, better show all that is there. Thus one more line at the beginning (that contains the prompt and the command you used) and one more line at the end (the new prompt, it will signal that it is complete). Then all can see who you were (e.g. root or not), where you were (working directory) , most important, what you did. Now we have only what you got.

Second is specifically for the repo listing. As already mentioned above, we can not see what you did, but it should have been

zypper lr -d

Without the -d (or similar) option we do not get the URLs of the repos. What is left is their number, name and alias, but they can be everything (although they may hint). Only the URLs define what you use.

Thank you hcvv for your observations, I’ve taken duly note of them. You are very kind.
These are the repos:

zypper lr -d
Repository priorities are without effect. All enabled repositories share the same priority.

My apologies for the inconvenience. =)

That would also be my approach as a KDE user. Is there any particular reason why PAPREFS is needed ? Is this a Gnome desktop requirement?

Thank you, oldcpu. I will try the first option, as you both suggested.
