OK, I have had some success, some information, and some questions.
With little changes, my HP dv6113us mute and volume touch keys work. No new apps needed to be installed. It just works. Excellent.
I added the following lines to the .fluxbox/keys file:
None XF86AudioMute :ExecCommand /usr/bin/amixer -q sset Master,0 toggle
None XF86AudioLowerVolume :ExecCommand /usr/bin/amixer -q sset Master,0 5%-
None XF86AudioRaiseVolume :ExecCommand /usr/bin/amixer -q sset Master,0 5%+
The current icon in the system tray does not reflect the changes dynamically. It does not reflect changes in volume by keys or by mixer. Only if you click the icon (which brings up the slider) and move the slider does it's value change (and the volume changes according to it).
I installed volumeicon and it did dynamically reflect the volume, whether altered by keys or by mixer.
Is there a way to get the current volume icon to reflect the correct volume value dynamically? Or should it be replaced with volumeicon?
Also, I commented out the following lines in the ~/.fluxbox/startup file:
And added the following to use volumeicon:
Also, I had to move the blue-tooth-applet to later in the list or it would not initialize. Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance.
