> If you're running your headphones straight out of your sound card's
> "Line out" jack, you might notice there's no volume control. Instead
> of trashing your ears or firing up a audio mixer every time you need
> to set the volume, just bind the commands
> aumix -v+4 # crank up the volume!
> aumix -v-4 # turn that crap down!
> to two spare function keys. (In Sawfish, this is under the "Bindings"
> menu in the sawfish-ui program.) Presto--free and easy volume control
> straight from the keyboard.
> There are also nifty little volume control applets for the KDE and
> GNOME taskbars, but why spend pixels on a common task when you have
> all those keys just sitting there?
