Re: Help! The systray volume icon doesn't work!

How involved would it be to undo this?  Would it be as simple as commenting out or removing the line starting PulseAudio in ~/.config/openbox/autostart?  I'm using PNMixer.

Unless you have a reason not to use PulseAudio, I'd leave everything in openbox/autostart as it is, and just comment out the line that launches volumeicon-alsa.

If PulseAudio is removed, the file at /etc/asound.conf must also be deleted for the sound to work afterwards.

Also, if the machine has multiple soundcards (most modern laptops with HDMI outputs will have a multi-channel soundcard as well as stereo) then the default card will have to be set using other methods.

Re: Help! The systray volume icon doesn't work!

@John:  volumeicon-alsa purged in favor of backported pnmixer deb from HoaS.

The reason I ask is because I recently had to re-install BL on my desktop and it seems that the volume when playing music under Audacious is lower than it was previously.  However, the perceived lower volume may have something to do with the volume setting in Audacious.  I need to compare the Audacious volume setting on my desktop and laptop.

I also remember fiddling with ALSA vs PulseAudio when the lower volume issue appeared in the past.  Wish I had documented it because I can't remember what I did.

(BTW pnmixer is available in Debian Stretch, so it might be a candidate for re-inclusion in BL Helium.)
