The asmix is a X11 application that acts as a volume control knob for the /dev/mixer
device. The applet provides a distinctive AfterStep window manager look.

The best thing about this applet is that you do not have to learn how to use it. If you
used any volume knobs before - you know how to operate this one. If you never came across
such a thing then just grab the knob with the left button of your mouse and turn it into
the position you like.

into the AfterStep Wharf.


asmix was written to be swallowed by the AfterStep wharf module, but it can be used with
everything else too. A common invocation is the command line:

user@host[1]% asmix &

Another way to call asmix is from the AfterStep Wharf:

*Wharf asmix nil Swallow "asmix" asmix -shape &

This line, when placed in the wharf file in the users Afterstep configuration directory
will cause asmix to be a button on the Wharf (1) button bar under the afterstep (1) window
