Re: VolWheel - easy volume control

great app. new feature request: single or double-clicking volume icon should toggle mute.
also, to facilitate this i propose that mixer does not appear on single-click, but is instead displayed by right-click context menu.

Re: VolWheel - easy volume control

Why does volwheel always jump up to 75% instantly if scroll up while the volume is 0%?

@fivre: I used "sleep 2s && xwininfo" so that I could bring up the mixer and then click on it. wink This is what I got:

xwininfo: Window id: 0x1602e34 "volwheel"

  Absolute upper-left X:  896

Re: VolWheel - easy volume control

Hi
I'm after another arch installation, after installing volwheel drom community it gives me following error:

Can't locate Glib.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.1 /usr/share/perl5/site_perl/5.10.1 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib/perl5/core_perl /usr/share/perl5/core_perl /usr/lib/perl5/current /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/current .) at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/Gtk2.pm line 30.

Compilation failed in require at /usr/share/perl5/core_perl/if.pm line 13.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/bin/volwheel line 22.

Don't know what to do with that.

EDIT:
Oh, it worked after glib-perl reinstallation ;f

Re: VolWheel - easy volume control

This app is a little gem! It makes so much difference having the volume control right there on the sys tray! Thanks for developing it!

I have only one suggestion: it could use the user icon theme, instead of using its own themeing system, if it uses the set_from_icon_name method of Gtk2::StatusIcon, instead of set_from_file method. According to the freedesktop.org spec, the icon names should be "audio-volume-high", "audio-volume-low", "audio-volume-medium" and "audio-volume-muted" for the dynamic icon and "multimedia-volume-control" for the static.

What do you think?

Re: VolWheel - easy volume control

Exceptional usefull tool but I have a small problem however. I use foobar2K with wine (because frankly, there is NO player in linux that has the same power in a gui) and when I start it, my tint flickers and then volwheel is gone. Is there a logfile or something for volwheel so I can check what's up?

Re: VolWheel - easy volume control

It's a very good program.

But in my machine, there is a bug. When I trying to change the volume, it uses a lot of CPU.

Re: VolWheel - easy volume control

Big thanks for you program.  big_smile
I have a slow animation in icon and sliders, but good what sound's volume is changing faster than animation smile Maybe it's because i haven't gstreamer?

Re: VolWheel - easy volume control

Yesterday volwheel was not functionning properly, being very unresponsive, with high latency. Today it looks like volume bar can scrolled fast. Strange. If it works like this, it's fine otherwise I would to find another volume controler. I use it on fluxbox.

Re: VolWheel - easy volume control

Today I recognized an error:

defined(@array) is deprecated at /usr/bin/volwheel line 45.
(Maybe you should just omit the defined()?)

I know that the message is pretty much selfexplaining but I still don't know what/how I have to change the line 45.

Edit:
The problem could be solved by changing line 45 from

if (defined(@ARGV)) {

to

if (@ARGV) {

I wrote the developer an email and he replied me the solution -so all credits belong to him smile

Re: VolWheel - easy volume control

This applet seems pretty nice, but I noticed one dealbreaking issue for me. There seems to be a huge latency when using it to change the volume, the slider is extremely unresponsive.
