       asmix - the AfterStep volume control knob


       asmix [-h] [-V]
               [-iconic] [-shape] [-withdrawn]
               [-geometry [+|-]x[+|-]y]
               [-channel channel-id]
               [-exe command]
               [-device mixer-device]
               [-name window-name]


       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.


              Prints a short description and usage message.

              Version control. Prints the version of the applet.

       -geometry [+|-]x[+|-]y
              Displays the window at the specified location on the screen. This works as standard
              X Windows geometry option.

              Starts the asmix  application  in  the  iconized  mode.   The  icon  has  the  same
              appearance with the main window.

              Starts the asmix application without groundplate.

              Starts  the  asmix applet in the "withdrawn" mode.  Necessary to be able to dock it
              to the Window Maker's dock.

       -channel <channel-id>
              Specifies the channel to control (default: volume).  The possible channels include:
              volume,  pcm,  bass,  treble,  synth,  speaker,  line, mic, cd, imix, pcm2, record,
              igain, ogain, line1, line2, line3, digital1, digital2, digital3,  phone-in,  phone-
              out, video, radio, monitor.  Note that not all systems support all channels.

       -exe <command>
              The applet will execute the specified command on a mouseclick with the middle mouse
              button in the window.

       -device <mixer-device>
              The applet will attempt to opern the specified mixer device instead of the standard

       -name <window-name>
              The  applet will set the name of the window to the specified window-name instead of
              the standard "asmix". This is useful when swallowing multiple  instances  of  asmix
              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


       None that I am aware of.
