Alsa Control Server
firstname.lastname@example.org)Shane Tully (
The server and client will compile with just a basic development enviroment set up.
- The Android client requires the Android SDK and Ant to be installed.
- You need the -xorg-dev (or similar) package installed.
- While not required at compile-time, the Alsa program "amixer" is required for the server to work properly.
- In order to communicate with the X server, the startup script needs to change the user the server is running as to a user that is logged in to X. At the very least, it needs changed to a user that exists on the system. In
src/alsa-serverchange the line
USER=shaneto a user on the target system.
For the server and client:
make sudo make install
For the Android client:
make android sudo make install_android <-- You should have your Android device plugged in
The server was written and tested on a Debian-based system. It should work on other Linux distros, but no guarantees are made.
First, start the server: sudo service alsa-server start
Either use the client (alsa-client) or the Android application to communicate with the server.
See "alsa-client -h" and "alsa-server -h" for specific usage info.
