amixer-gtk

I've developed a new alsa mixer interface:

amixer-gtk

The packages are built for chimaera.

Just run amixer-gtk or add it to your autostart applications, and the icon will appear in your systray. The sound card suitable for playback/capture streaming will be automatically detected by the program. It looks like this:

Thumbsup


Ive been using QasMixer and Volumeicon-alsa
I dont like ((( pulse audio )))  , ((( wayland ))) or ((( pipewire )))

Have you got it shared as an deb file so people with Debian and Debian distros can use it too ???



So people know
* Palemoon - works with ALSA
* LibreWolf - Works with ALSA
* Ungoogled Chromium - Works with ALSA
* Shortcut video editor - Works with ALSA
* Smplayer - Works with ALSA
* Simple Screen Recorder - Works with ALSA

The following DEBs are available for manual installation:

https://www.gnuinos.org/amixer-gtk/amixer-gtk_0.1_amd64.deb
https://www.gnuinos.org/amixer-gtk/amixer-gtk_0.1_i386.deb

Quick installation commands (one for amd64 and the other for i386:

wget https://www.gnuinos.org/amixer-gtk/amixer-gtk_0.1_amd64.deb && sudo dpkg -i amixer-gtk_0.1_amd64.deb
wget https://www.gnuinos.org/amixer-gtk/amixer-gtk_0.1_i386.deb && sudo dpkg -i amixer-gtk_0.1_i386.deb

I'm not trying to be a smart-aleck, but did you mean Shotcut instead of Shortcut?

Shotcut is what I use. smile

I have been Devuanated, and my practice in the art of Devuanism shall continue until my Devuanization is complete. Until then, I will strive to continue in my understanding of Devuanchology, Devuanprocity, and Devuanivity.

Re: amixer-gtk

This app obviously lacks some features like sound device selection. However it's pretty fine for a 0.1 release 👍

Googled Chrome also works with ALSA. It's just Firefox developers who decided to relegate their browser back to the silent fim era.

I am aware of this. Thanks for giving it a try!

I am running FF on chimaera without pulseaudio thanks to "apulse". That has been available on Devuan for years.  I have NEVER used PA and ALWAYS had FF as one of my browsers.

Apologies to aitor for going OT . . .

Re: amixer-gtk

I'd also like to go ALSA-only, but ALSA configuration is quite confusing.

I think the best I could do is get applications like Firefox to have working sound, but Steam and others did not (even with apulse).

My experience has been very similar, sadly. Before I had a computer my entertainment system had an outboard mixer... Plug anything in and go.

I just gave it another go and discovered if I didn't change any defaults in /etc/asound.conf and instead changed the order for snd-hda-intel chips in /etc/modprobe.d then everything just seems to work. I have both pulseaudio and pipewire blacklisted. Maybe adding more to the configuration is what ruined it for me, but dmix seems to be turned on by default.

I've been stuck to using FreeBSD which uses OSS for a while because of the cancer that is pulse/pipewire and ALSA, the purist alternative, didn't seem to "just work". OSS is much like that, plug and go. It can even handle software mixing well. Thankfully this worked, because otherwise I would have to deal with a constant popping noise regardless of the distro and regardless of what changes I made to pulseaudio or pipewire. I tried using Debian itself without systemd and well... Now I see why Devuan is so important.

That's a bit off-topic. Nice mixer I should say altor. smile
