This extension adds a little entry to the status-menu that shows the currently selected pulse-audio-output device. Clicking on that will open a submenu with all available output devices and let's you choose which one to use.

This extension is based on anducs work at but it's not supporting last versions of gnome-shell.


Either via

or via git

git clone ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/gnome-shell-audio-output-switcher@kgaut

Then restart the gnome-shell via ALT+F2 r and enable the extension using gnome-tweak-tool

To update later, just issue

(cd ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/gnome-shell-audio-output-switcher@kgaut && git pull)
