asmixer(1) the AfterStep Mixer


asmixer [ -help ] [ -g geometry ] [ -d device ] [ -1 control ] [ -2 control ] [ -3 control ] [ -t title ] [ -v rate ] [ -w withdrawn ]


asmixer is a nice little application for controlling the volume of various sound outputs through three slider bars. It can be swallowed into Afterstep's Wharf for ease of use.


-h -help --help
     SOS, 911, etc.

-g [+|-]x[+|-]y
     standard format for where you want to exile asmixer
      -d device
     the mixer device to harass
      -1 -2 -3 control
     this binds a slider to a specific sound device:

     LINE1, LINE2, LINE3

     WindowMaker withdrawn window support.

-v volume
     the volume (1-100) to set the first slider to


-d /dev/mixer -1 VOLUME -2 CD -3 PCM -t asmixer


asmixer can be called from one of many ways. The most common invocation is Afterstep's .steprc:
   *Wharf "mixer" nil Swallow "asmixer" asmixer -g -1-1 &
This line will cause asmixer to be swallowed into Wharf, which 9 out of 10 dentists agree is cool. You will then be able to slide to your hearts content in perfect Wharf comfort!

Another way to call asmixer is from the command line:

        [ximenes@leo]$ asmixer -d /dev/mixer -t asmixer -v 95 &

This will pop up a little window with asmixer helplessly imprisoned inside. Don't worry, it likes it.
