Just wanted to say that you (and everyone that also is involved with this) rocks!Keep it up!
Good work, but this is still an awful, awful dialog :(
Would be cool if it could detect my HDMI automatically as well. Still rocks though ^^.
Chris: I don't see what's so awful about it... Feel free to file bugs with your suggestionsHans: it will detect HDMI automatically if ALSA and PA show it. Does it show up as a profile in pavucontrol? If so, file a bug against gnome-media, if not, file a bug against your distribution's ALSA package.
Chris: read http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=572217 for a good overview of the trickiness inherent here. Sound is complex, it's hard to make a dialog that's both simple *and* useful...
how to access to this code?I've tried git clone git://git.gnome.org/gnome-volume-managerbut install the 2.24.1 version...
Fabio, gnome-volume-manager, as its README would tell you, handles "disk volumes", not sound volume.Check gnome-media instead. The sources are in the gnome-volume-control sub-directory.
What about rear balance?
There's no rear balance per se. Changing Balance and Fade makes changing to all the speakers (except the subwoofer), you can see the interaction by launching pavucontrol for example.
yeah i discover it by myself a few minutes after (tnx to readme hehe)however, i get this:[fabio@abuarch src]$ ./gnome-volume-control-applet ** (gnome-volume-control-applet:13375): WARNING **: Connection failed
Fabio: This isn't a bugzilla though. And you seem to not be running PulseAudio...
lovely piece of work, would it be included with gnome-media?
mojo: yes, this PA-based gnome-volume-control is now the default in upstream gnome-media. however, Ubuntu chose to ship the old one by default in 9.04.Fedora 11 ships the new one by default and the old one stuck down in the menus for people who need functionality the new one doesn't yet provide.Mandriva ships only the new one in 2009 Spring, I believe.The versions in current stable distros will not include this new goodness, it's in the 2.27 branch which will go stable with the 2.28 release. It may well get shipped as updates for Fedora 11, though, I'm guessing (Bastien?)Not sure about other distros.
