Volume Control

A simple Volume Control application, mainly tailored for my Logitech MX Performance.
I like to use the side buttons (identified as m10 and m13) to control my volume.

This simple application handles this, volume key on media keyboards, as well as showing a notification with the current volume, and controls to mute all sound from there.

This application has close to zero flexibility, but the source might help as a reference to others (how to globally bind a mouse button using Xlib, proper pynotify action handling, etc).

Feel free to use this as a reference for anything you like. The design isn't the best I've dont, but it's quite understandable, efficient, and works.


If you're running ArchLinux, download the PKGBUILD, and run "makepkg -sci". Otherwise, download the source, and run python2 install.


Run volctld to run the daemon. Volume keys should work right away, and m10 and 13 control sound volume as well.
