Conky has pulseaudio support, but it is not enabled. Please enable it.

Additional info:
conky 1.10.3-1

Required cmake option: -D BUILD_PULSEAUDIO=ON

This causes conky to link with so at least a dependency on libpulse is required.

You may also want to look into the other options and check if any of them could be enabled as well.
This task depends upon

I'm happy to add pulseaudio support to conky if you need it. I'm aware of the many other options that upstream has chosen to disable by default, though I don't see the point enabling them in our package unless somebody actually needs it.
