Description:

This project has been forked by nicklan the version available on gtk-apps is no longer maintained and you should switch to PNMixer which is available here;

https://github.com/nicklan/pnmixer/wiki

PNMixer adds lots of features to this application and so it is highly recommended that you use PNMixer instead.

==================

OBmixer is a GTK mixer applet that runs in the system trey of the window manager or panel, it looks a lot like gnome's mixer applet. This applet has the following advantages;

- lightweight
- works with both pulseaudio and alsa
- has mute/umute feature which remembers your previous volume.
- works with tint2.
- the tray icon indicates if the system is muted
- will run outside of gnome.

It has been tested an found to work well with the following software;

- LXDE
- Openbox (with desktop margin set "obconf")
- tint2
- icewm
- gnome
- fbpanel

As always if you have any questions please ask in the feedback section. Thanks

29/08/09 - Initial release

04/09/09 - obmixer 0.11

- This application now interfaces with ALSA rather than OSS as the oss mixer device will not allow access to the full range of the Master volume channel in future versions of ubuntu.
- As interfacing with ALSA slows the application down, volume changes now only take affect when the scale is released.

02/06/11 - Project forked, now called PNMixer (Thanks nicklan).

Hello.

Firstly, thanks for the useful little app.

I've written some patches to allow a few things:
- Volume adjustment with the scroll wheel
- Display of volume level to the right of the slider
- Continous volume adjustment when dragging the slider (not just when you let go)
- Use system icon theme for icons and use mute/low/medium/high volume icons

Not sure the best place to send/submit these, so I figured I'd comment here to let you know. Please let me know if you'd like me to send the patches your way.

Hi Mike,

Thankyou very much for your interest in this project. Those changes sound amazing and I would be very interested in seeing the patches but unfortunately I don't think that I will have time in the near future to work on this app.

I can patch and release a new version of this app with the patches if you would like but I don't have time to extend this app myself, so you might consider a fork.

When I started work on this app I was unaware of various other similar apps which already existed and were better (google failed me or I failed at google). One such app is here;

http://softwarebakery.com/maato/volumeicon.html

If I would have known that volumeicon existed I probably wouldn't have written this app.

I'll let you know my e-mail address so that you can send the patches to me and will update this app when I have patched it.

thanks again

Lee
