A simple plasma replacement for kmix. Not yet very powerful since python-alsaaudio is very limited.

Install with plasmapkg -i Mixeroid-0.3.zip

Test with plasma-windowed Mixeroid

  • python-alsaaudio

  • python-plasma

  • Note: If you get missing script-engine errors when loading the widget you need to install the plasma python script-engine (in openSUSE this requires the "python-kdebase4" and "python-devel" packages, in Fedora this requires the "kdebase-workspace-python-applet" package, in Kubuntu this requires the "python-plasma" package)


  • Config dialog

  • Select orientation of the sliders

  • Select visible sliders

  • Note: you may have to restart the applet after changing the config

  • V0.2:
  • Added tooltips

  • Merged changes from comments

  • V0.1:
  • Initial release

  • LicenseGPL

    as usual with plasma

    Just looking for quick muting speakers (when use headphones) and try this one.
    Doesn't want to work - installation is awesome! But! after adding to panel - X
    red cross.
    Cannot load python or smthg that.
    Also, the bottom panel with TaskManager start to quake, shrink and squeeze a bit.

    What distribution do you use? You need to install the plasma python script-engine (in openSUSE this requires the "python-kdebase4" and "python-devel" packages, in Fedora this requires the "kdebase-workspace-python-applet" package, in Kubuntu this requires the "python-plasma" package)

     Looks too small in panel view

    It is a good idea, but scrollbars looks to small in onpanel mode:

    This is a problem of the plasma theme for the sliders. You can make your own, if you like to contribute!

    No coding, just using inkscape.

     some suggestions

     by dkarnout on: Jun 11 2009

    thanks for this very useful plasmoid.
    i just have 2 suggestions:
    my soundcard has so many slides and settings window is bigger than the screen. it would be better if you have a scrollbar for checkboxes, or if you put options in a listview with checkboxes.
    i also believe that most people use only the master volume slider. so you could have only this checked by default, or at least you could and two buttons in settings menu (check/uncheck all)
    thanks again

    It also needs the alsaaudio bindings of python, in Kubuntu it's the "python-alsaaudio" package. This will fix script init errors.

    You can either download the zip file from this page, open a terminal, change the folder to the one, where you stored the zip file and type "plasmapkg -i 99778-Mixeroid-0.3.zip". Or you can right-click on your desktop, select "add widget..." and use the online source, where you will also find Mixeroid.

    Thank you for your reply.
    Well, it was yet installed. But I can't find it in the plasma list.
    I don't know why. I'm on KDE4.3 on a Debian SID.
    kbuildsycoca4 doesn't do anything. . .

    How do you like Plasma 5?
     The best KDE Desktop ever.
     Definitely a nice improvement.
     Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
     I do not like some of the changes.
     KDE is taking the wrong way.
     I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
     I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
