(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.
Please read up in this thread. About 16 or 17 posts before this one.

My guess is that you are using puppy 2.15CE or did the wrong MIME association for TCL applications. That screen is not a problem with the script but the way you are executing it (or the puppy you are using). WhoDo, already fixed Puppy for the next version of 2.15.

I don't specify the position. It is responsibility of the WM to position it.

Thanks rarsa,

I fixed the mysterious grey window problem. You were right. My ROX run default was set to "wish" and not "tclsh" as a result of some earlier fiddling on my part. As for direct Alsa mixer support, that would be great. I read the previous posts you mentioned and am looking forward to it, if, that is, you ever find the time. One problem I see right off the bat is that some sound cards have a ridiculously large number of controls and toggles (such as mine). That would make for a very unwieldy mixer (if there were no separate configuration dialog to disable most of them) and require a large array for their storage. Your code, as it now stands, is simple, elegant and straghtforward.

With kind regards,
vovchik

PS.To get sound out of my card I had to run the following:

amixer set 'Audigy Analog/Digital Output Jack' unmute

and it took me some time to figure that one out...and that it was muted by default.

That's one of the reasons I added the configuration window. Wink

No problem with the way I coded it. The code is the same whether there are 10 or 100 controls.

Thanks for the kind words, though.

Puppy volume mixer is a standard application, It does not depend on the Window Manager.

I don't know what kind of setup you have so I don't know why it is not showing in your Multimedia menu but you can execute it from the command line
Code:
pvolume-mixer.tcl

Nice work rarsa Smile

I've been reading the forum sporadically and missed this thread until now. Here's my amixer output.

Paul

P.S. Just a comment on 'speakers' vs 'headphones': The setvol 0 (SOUND_MIXER_VOLUME) device works with my laptop's speakers but not the headphone jack where I have my external speakers connected. Only device 4 & 10 have any effect (PCM & ALTPCM), as you have noticed on one of your PCs.

The same is true with your mixer and Zmixer's master volume control. However, when I install Xtmix, the master volume DOES control BOTH outputs! I wonder why one mixer controls both and another doesn't... It would be nice if the volumeapplet could control my external speakers Wink
