NAME
       asmix - the AfterStep volume control knob

SYNOPSIS
       asmix [-h] [-V]
	       [-iconic] [-shape] [-withdrawn]
	       [-geometry [+|-]x[+|-]y]
	       [-channel channel-id]
	       [-exe command]
	       [-device	mixer-device]
	       [-name window-name]

DESCRIPTION
       The  asmix  is a	X11 application	that acts as a volume control knob for
       the /dev/mixer device.  The applet  provides  a	distinctive  AfterStep
       window manager look.

       The  best  thing	about this applet is that you do not have to learn how
       to use it. If you used any volume knobs before -	you know how to	 oper-
       ate  this one. If you never came	across such a thing then just grab the
       knob with the left button of your mouse and turn	it into	 the  position
       you like.

CONFIGURATION OPTIONS
       -h
	      Prints a short description and usage message.

       -V
	      Version control. Prints the version of the applet.

       -geometry [+|-]x[+|-]y
	      Displays	the  window  at	 the specified location	on the screen.
	      This works as standard X Windows geometry	option.

       -iconic
	      Starts the asmix application in the iconized mode.  The icon has
	      the same appearance with the main	window.

       -shape
	      Starts the asmix application without groundplate.

       -withdrawn
	      Starts  the  asmix applet	in the "withdrawn" mode.  Necessary to
	      be able to dock it to the	Window Maker's dock.

       -channel	<channel-id>
	      Specifies	the channel to control (default: volume).  The	possi-
	      ble channels include: volume, pcm, bass, treble, synth, speaker,
	      line, mic, cd, imix, pcm2, record, igain,	ogain,	line1,	line2,
	      line3, digital1, digital2, digital3, phone-in, phone-out,	video,
	      radio, monitor.  Note that not all systems support all channels.

       -exe <command>
	      The applet will execute the specified command  on	 a  mouseclick
	      with the middle mouse button in the window.

       -device <mixer-device>
	      The  applet will attempt to opern	the specified mixer device in-
	      stead of the standard /dev/mixer.

       -name <window-name>
	      The applet will set the name of the window to the	specified win-
	      dow-name	instead	 of  the standard "asmix". This	is useful when
	      swallowing multiple instances of asmix into the AfterStep	Wharf.

INVOCATION
       asmix was written to be swallowed by the	AfterStep wharf	module,	but it
       can  be used with everything else too.  A common	invocation is the com-
       mand line:

	    user@host[1]% asmix	&

       Another way to call asmix is from the AfterStep Wharf:

	    *Wharf asmix nil Swallow "asmix" asmix -shape &

       This line, when placed in the wharf file	in the users Afterstep config-
       uration directory will cause asmix to be	a button on the	Wharf (1) but-
       ton bar under the afterstep (1) window manager.

BUGS
       None that I am aware of.

FILES
       /dev/mixer
