ossxmix - Open Sound System GTK based GUI mixer program.


ossxmix [-Sbhx] [-d <dev#>] [-w <value>] [-n <value>]

ossxmix is a GTK+ based mixer applet that is used to display the mixer settings of physical and virtual audio devices. There can be several physical mixers for a single audio device. Mixers found on audio devices are controllers that set the volume, select the input, perform certain functions on the speakers or set various device characteristics.

-d<dev#>Display only mixer device dev#. If this option is not given then ossxmix will display all the mixers available on the system.

-w[value]Make the mixer slightly wider on the screen. This option affects only the selection boxes and peak meter LED bars. In most cases

-n[value]Make the mixer slightly narrower than normally. This may be necessary if the mixer is wider than the screen. The value can be
