========================================================================== -- a simple windowmaker volume control dockapp

This is a simple volume control for the AfterStep / BlackBox / Window
Maker dock. is intended to be an extremely simple, efficient, and
attractive interface to a system's sound mixer.

Currently, only OSS mixer interface is supported. ALSA mixer can be used through
ALSA's OSS emulation.


NOTE: The hacks/mods are for "ALSA's OSS emulation" in ALSA systems.

NOTE2: There are two 'mod' files: "" and "".
If you want to use them, simple rename them to each "original filename"
(remove ".mod" on filename).

"" is a hack to fix the mute/unmute problem
for ALSA systems. (It uses "amixer" command as background).

"" is just a covenience to set some parameters.
eg: If is notified that the app is not running on the right mixer
(more than 1 soundcard), you may try to set the default mixer
before creating the package!

'cat /proc/asound/oss/sndstat' and search the "Mixers" section.
locate the desired 'mixer number' and then modify file
"" at "DEFAULT_MIXER_DEVICE" parameter.

Eg2: if desired mixer is "2", modify "" as below:

( to )

Again, do not forget to rename the file "" to
"" before creating the package.
