I don´t know why kwin needs wireplumber now. I don´t want to use pipewire yet, i am comfortable using pulseaudio.

The solution was stopping and disabling wireplumber & pipewire services and restarting pulseaudio.

kwin depends on pipewire-session-manager for a long time, this in no way prevents you from using pulseaudio. Use the forum for support of you have issues with it.
