wmmixer - A mixer application designed for WindowMaker


wmmixer is a mixer application designed for WindowMaker, although there is nothing in the
program that makes it require WindowMaker, except maybe the NeXTStep look and the fact
that it properly docks. It can be used with other window managers without problems.


wmmixer [options]


This program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with
two dashes ('--'). A summary of options is included below.

-d, --display <string>
Attempt to open a window on the named X display. In the absence of this option the
display specified by the DISPLAY environment variable is used.

-g, --geometry <string>
geometry to use, e.g. +100+100 to place it at 100/100

-h, --help
show help text and exit.

-v, --version
show program version and exit.

-w, --withdrawn
run the application in withdrawn mode. This is for use with WindowMaker or other
window managers supporting docks (e.g. KDE)

-a, --afterstep
use smaller window (for AfterStep Wharf)

-s, --shaped
shaped window

-l, --led-color <string>
use the specified color for led, e.g. red, green, blue (default: green)

-L, --led-highcolor <string>
use the specified color for led-shading, e.g. red, green, blue (default: red)

-b, --back-color <string>
use the specified color for backgrounds, e.g. red, green, blue

-m, --mix-device <string>
use specified device (rather than /dev/mixer)

-r, --scrollwheel <number>
Set the volume increase/decrease when using the mouse wheel (default: 2)

For backward compatibility the following obsolete options are still supported:

-help show help text and exit.

attempt to open a window on the named X display

geometry to use, e.g. +100+100 to place it at 100/100


All available channels on your soundcard's mixer are accessible with wmmixer. Most common
channels are identified with an appropriate icon. Controls include a stereo (mono where
appropriate) volume control and a recording source toggle button.

Press the "<" and ">" arrow buttons to select a channel. The icon identifies the current
channel (a volume symbol with a question mark represents an unrecognised channel). Click
and/or drag the volume display to set channel volume. There is a also a button to set
recording sources.


Users can configure wmmixer to suit their requirements by means of a ~/.wmmixer file. A
commented example can be found in /usr/share/doc/wmmixer on Debian systems, and would be a
good starting point
