XAmixer is an ALSA based mixer, written
with the gtk toolkit. XAmixer is fairly simple right now, but it does
support these features:
- Stereo Volume Control with channel locking.
- Supports as many cards as ALSA, in a notebook interface.
- You can choose (in a config file) what channels to display.
I have started the 0.3 development branch because XAmixer has been
rewritten to support versions of Alsa >= 0.4.0. For a while
this branch was called XAmixer2 but that code has now become
XAmixer 0.3.1. Development is slow but continuing. If you have
any patches or requests please let me know.
The reason for the change was that the mixer interface of ALSA
changed dramatically and
I am releasing XAmixer under the terms of the GPL. The terms of copying are
included in the source distribution.
XAmixer does not
work with alsa version .9 or greater. The mixer interface in .9 is
different again and honestly I don't feel like keeping up the needless
rewrites of the interface. Well, that and Abramo Bagnara is, or at least
was, in my opinion, an ass. Since he is, or at least was, central to alsa
development and I couldn't stand talking to him, I gave up several years
ago. If the mixer interface for alsa is (1) useful (2) stable and (3a)no
longer requires any interaction whatsoever with Abramo Bagnara or (3b)
Abramo is no longer so strident and difficult to deal with or work with,
please let me know and I'll look into writing a gtk mixer for ALSA again. I
like the ALSA project (and I like Jaroslav).
