Rarsa: I must thank you for your work. I have no time to try your mixer, but as it is stated in another threads, there is a mess with the voip phones as Skype or Xten-Xlite (a generic one).
With Puppy 2.02 and its mixer xtmix, both phones run ok.
In the new versions, 2.13, 2.14 and Pizzapup, they don't works.
The remote user tell us not hearing our voice.
Xtmix have a small button, like a dot, that enables the mic capture. Zmix does not have it.
I think was Gen Too that kindly suggest to enable directly the mic through the order "amixer set mic 98% unmute cap".
It is not possible you include the mic capture on/off button into your mixer?.

I think in the new versions Alsa install was too much trimmed lacking drivers for legacy cards and so on. But perhaps this may be the subject of another thread.

Thanks
Xan

It's in my plans but first I need to have the output of the command in my previous post from as many users as possible. Please execute it and post the file.

This is good, keep them comming, the more I have the easier it will be to have a (now for real) fully functional mixer.

Why another mixer? Well, I searched up and down for Mixers, GTK based mixers in particular, and for whatever reason they are either quite ugly with a lot of functionality or nice looking with very limited functionality. There were even the ugly looking with very functionality.

I am sure that whatever I come up with will not support 100% of Alsa's functionality, it will just be a volume level mixer not a full mixer but it will allow users with a broader range of audio devices to control them.

rarsa, I haven't given it any kind of test but at least I figured out how to use it. Laughing I had assumed it would replace the single slider bar that pops up when you left-click the speaker icon. I finally found the Puppy sound mixer in the multimedia menu.

Speaking of that slider bar, it doesn't always go away when I'm done with it and move the cursor. Anyone know why?

If you use the most recent tray mini-volume, it shows a menu on right click from where you can select "mixer" which will open the mixer.

Yes, the mouse must move over the open slider. The slider closes 0.5 seconds after the mouse leaves it.

PostPosted: Sun 11 Mar 2007, 17:24    Post subject: Pvolume mixer
Subject description: tweaks
 

Dear rarsa,

I did get pvolume to work on my machine but have the following observations.

(a) it controls my alsa Audigy 2ZS just fine, but 13 options aren't really enough. I'll try to tweak the code a bit to inlcude a toggle for analog on/off, since I had that problem for about a week and was getting no sound out of the Audigy until I toggled that setting in the alsa console mixer.

(b) Pvolume opens up a small 8x8cm grey window, in addition to the mixer window. Is there any way to turn that annoyance off? There must be some tktcl initialization setting setting.

(c)The mixer app, at least on on my machine (xorg at 1028x768 TTL), starts off at about horiz. pixel 950, which may be part of the reason I wrote earlier that the app wasn't working. It may be that I simply didn't see it materialize on the screen. I think an initial placement parameter, say 100h, 100v for most users, might be a good idea in a future release.

In any case, thanks and nice work.

With kind regards,
vovchik
