Re: VolWheel - easy volume control

Hey Oliwer, thanks for adding the OSS support! Seems to be working like a charm other than the having to choose the OSS driver after restarting the app. Anyway, thanks so much for making this!

Re: VolWheel - easy volume control

I get bad mixer control name with OSS.
I have tried a few different values like 'mixer' 'mix0' 'pcm0' etc but I can't work out what it's supposed to be.

Seems that it mutes a sub-channel and not the main called vmix-outvol roll

@sandman
What do you mean for mixer? Because the default OSS mixer is intented to be ossxmix that belongs to OSS package and located into /usr/bin.

Re: VolWheel - easy volume control

Crap ! I forgot to rename 2 variables in OSS.pm. In the functions 'mute' and 'unmute', replace '$opt{channel}' by '$channel'. Of course it couldn't work !

@sandman : you you can't find the right channel right ? Try with 'vol' or 'vmix-outvol'. This is something you should be able to figure out by yourself but maybe i'll add something to help you in a future release.

It works partly now because on unmute it restores volume to 100%. _Great_ work anyway oliwer wink

Re: VolWheel - easy volume control

Sorry for the long wait. The month of February has been quite busy and I had very little time to take care of VolWheel.

But today was a free day, and here it is : VolWheel 0.2.7

Changelog :
* Added OSS support through ossmix
* Added the MiniMixer
* Added configurable prefix
* Added support for xdg-user-dir spec
* Added an install script
* Modularisation and lots of code rewrite

You can see a little screenshot  a the new MiniMixer here. It is quite handy when you want to quickly access to both output and input channels (when using Skype for example). I'm also thinking of using this to manage the volume of each applications using PulseAudio.

The Community package should be updated soon.

Re: VolWheel - easy volume control

I can't get 0.2.7 to work... it complains about a missing Alsa.pm module.
Any tip which CPAN provides that?

Re: VolWheel - easy volume control

It seems some people have problems with the current installer which doesn't create all the necessary directories. Although I can't reproduce this on my box, I've fixed the installer and released a new tarball :

http://olwtools.googlecode.com/files/vo … xed.tar.gz

There is no need to download it if your current version works fine.

@scarecrow : this will solve your problem. VolWheel doesn't require any CPAN stuff besides Gtk2-perl. And BTW, the perl-Gtk2-trayicon dependency will disappear in the next version since Gtk+ 2.16 has vastly improved its StatusIcon widget.

Re: VolWheel - easy volume control

Is there a way to increase the priority on start of the volwheel app ? As its response time is very slow since upgrading to 0.2.7.

Thanks

Tim

EDIT

I thought I'd done it by launching with

nice -20 volwheel

But changing master volume is still to slugish, i've gone back to 0.2.6.

I'm using xfce4 panel

Re: VolWheel - easy volume control

For the next time, a niceness of -5 is more then enough for a user desktop operation. -2'0 gives it precedence to the most basic system operations.

Re: VolWheel - easy volume control

Tried niceness of -5 and the new volwheel is still slow and unresponsive in the xfce4 panel, there is something very wrong with the new version.

Re: VolWheel - easy volume control

Hey guys!
Is it only me but I need first to click on volwheel icon and only then I can use mouse wheel to adjust volume. Nothing happens if I just hover mouse over the icon and scroll the wheel.
I'm using fluxbox BTW. I've used wmix docapp before. But todays update broke it, so I was forced to find another alternative.

Re: VolWheel - easy volume control

What's the window name of the minimixer?

I can't set it to floating in my awesome config because I can't run xwininfo on it to get the name; it disappears as soon as I focus another window. sad
