About

PulseAudio-enabled tray icon volume control and OSD for Linux desktops.

I couldn't find a simple tray icon that allows to control multiple applications easily from the task bar. So I wrote my own.

The program is written in Python using GTK+. Bug reports and patches welcome!

It's not meant to be an replacement for a full-featured mixer application. If you're looking for that check out the excellent pavucontrol.
