Enhanced sound applet

README

Close

Sound 150%

Summary

This sound150@claudiux applet is an enhanced sound applet.

This applet works with Pulseaudio or Pipewire.

It can display icons indicating that the microphone is muted, if applicable.

Sound volume:

  • The volume step can be redefined (from 1% to 10%).
  • All multiples of 25% (or only 100%) can be magnetized.
  • The OSD is compatible with the Horizontal OSD Cinnamon extension.
  • A mark on slider signals the '100%' position of volume.

The song's cover art can be displayed when it is embedded in the file (.mp3, .flac ...) or available from the Radio3.0 applet.

You can control the sound volume up to 150% of its nominal value.

You can use the mouse wheel on this applet to control the sound volume. Use Ctrl+wheel or Shift+wheel to control microphone volume.

The icon can be colored according to the volume when it exceeds 100%.

From 0% to 100%: standard icon color.

From 101 to 115%: yellow icon (by default).

From 116 to 130%: orange icon (by default).

From 131 to 150%: red icon (by default).

You can select other colors or choose not to display colors.

You can redefine multimedia key bindings.

Successfully tested on Cinnamon versions 2.8 to 6.0 (Linux Mint 17.3 to 21.3). Does not work on Cinnamon prior to version 2.8 (Linux Mint prior to 17.3).

Dependencies

This applet requires playerctl. If this package is not installed, the user can install it using the 'Install playerctl' option in the menu. If this option is absent from the menu, this means that playerctrl is already installed.

Settings

  • Settings can be accessed by right-clicking on this applet icon (Configure... option of the context menu).

  • Since version 5.0.0, settings have been presented in a new way, with 4 tabs: Behavior, Sound, Icon, Shortcuts, making this applet highly configurable.

Translations

The Sound 150% applet is designed to allow translation. A .pot template file is available, which you can use with software such as poedit to translate into your own language. You can then submit your translation on github, by forking this repo and making a pull request containing your changes.

I enabled "Show song information on the panel" setting and set the character limit to 30, tho it doesn't display the song name while official cinnamon applet (sound@cinnamon.org) does

v6.15.0 is here with new features about microphone and seeker. From now on, an OSD is shown while changing microphone volume and this microphone volume can be modified by using Ctrl+wheel or Shift+wheel on this applet icon. New icons are available corresponding to the new option "Display icon indicating that the microphone is activated, if applicable". Enjoy it all!

Amazing applet! Is there any way to restore the stock cinnamon volume up/down OSD instead of just a tooltip from the Sound 150% applet? I had to do the rebinding approach because I needed to adjust the increment % and I noticed the OSD changed. I have another idea for the volume control increment percentage: an "Auto" option. The idea is that if you tap the same key multiple times it jumps the increment to a slightly higher percentage as you keep pressing it. This is what I think Windows 11 does. This can also be extended to having different scaling based on volume percentage. If someone is at 10% volume and turning it down, it could be weighted so that the algorithm doesn't as easily engage and the increments stay small, and vice versa for high volumes, the auto-scaling increments would mostly stay small if the user is increasing above 90%. This auto approach could also apply to continuous press of the volume up/down keys, because currently it reaches max/min volume extremely quickly even at 1%/2% increments. I'm not sure how held down keystrokes work under the hood, but locking the adjustments to a max of X/second when the key is pressed would make holding down volume keys more useful.
claudiux
claudiux-1 month ago
Interesting idea. I'll think about it. The OSD exists. Why can't you see it?
claudiux
claudiux-1 month ago
I've created a section named OSD in the Sound tab of this applet settings. Please try it and tell me if that solves your problem.

Hi Claudiux. Just had to tell you, I absolutely LOVE the option in the [Icon] tab of "Display volume level near icon"! I don't have to guess my volume level anymore whenever I return to my computer.
claudiux

Hi yesdrs13, That's why I've implemented this feature. I'm glad you like it.

claudiux I saw that you made many applets can you also make extensions? could we possibly bring in some compiz effects for cinnamon? we only have wobbly created by hermes83. the mint team has no interest in these effects and I noticed that several distros are returning effects such as windows catching fire, cube, magic lamp etc..

v6.5.0 is here! It improves the seeker in the menu: Elapsed time and duration are now displayed on either side of the seeker. You can go back in time, even if you're listening to the stream of a web-radio station (in the already listened-to section). It works great with the Radio3.0 applet! Enjoy it!

Same issue as yesdrs13 with 6.4.3 version. I'm using Linux Mint 21.3 with 5.15.0-100-generic x86_64 kernel. I set +/- to 1% in sound150 When I use my keyboard volume key to increase or decrease, it steps to +5% or -5% not ±1% ! I restart cinnamon "Alt+F2 - r" but same issue I restart computer -> same issue So I try to reassign shortcuts and then it works ! I think it may helps other peoples !
claudiux
claudiux-2 months ago
Simply check the "Redefine volume keyboard shortcuts" box. That's all there is to it.

Very awesome app and am grateful for it (and developer). One small problem I ran into is the volume step stays at 5% even though the app shows only 1% or any other % except 5% which is where it's "stuck". Any ideas how to solve this?
claudiux
claudiux-3 months ago
In the Sound tab of settings, try clicking on the first button: "Maximum Volume Control".

No, unfortunately that's not doing any changes. I probably didn't explain this well. I wish I could show you screenshots on here. I'll try to be as detailed as possible going by my screenshots I have. 1- [150 app, sound tab, showing 1% selected as the +/-; also showing an onscreen volume display of 25%] 2- [still showing 150 app as before and no changes made; increased the volume, but now the onscreen volume display shows 30% instead of 26%] 3- [150 app, sound tab, changed the +/- to 10%] 4- [still showing 150 app as #3 and no changes made; onscreen volume display showing 35%] 5- [still showing 150 app no changes; increased the volume, but this time the onscreen volume display shows 40% instead of 45%] It's showing the change in the +/- option, but not on the onscreen volume display where it either increases or decreases by 5 every time.

I use a Thinkpad X13 Yoga and I am experiencing the exact same issue as @EZoldin; the 'Volume Mute' shortcut no longer works. Under the tab 'Shortcuts' it identifies as 'Audio mute' but it doesn't do anything. v6.3.3, Mint Cinnamon 21.3
claudiux
claudiux-3 months ago
v6.3.2 is here. Now, by clicking on the icon next to the Volume or Microphone slider, you can mute or unmute it.
claudiux
claudiux-3 months ago
v6.3.0 is here! It allows you to display icon indicating that the microphone is muted, if applicable. Sound volume: Now can allow to magnetize all multiples of 25%. Enjoy it! It took a lot of time to do.

The version 6.1.0 of sound150@claudiux is here! From now on, when a song file (mp3, flac ...) contains a cover, it is displayed as an icon for this applet. Tested with these players: * celluloid * mpv * vlc * rhythmbox * audacious This should work whatever player you use. In addition, if easyeffects is installed, you can open it using the easyeffects option in the context menu. Enjoy all this!

I've used "Sound 150%" applet many year and was very satisfied. But starting few days ago I remarked, that the volume-mute shortcut does not work any more - I have ThinkPad T14 with Linux Mint 21.3, Cinnamon 6.0.4, Kernel 6.5.0-18 . The volume shortcuts are Volume-mute - Fn+F1 with small LED indicator Volume-down - Fn+F2 Volume-up - Fn+F3 Mic-mute - Fn+F4 with small LED indicator All of them but the volume-mute work fine. After many keyboard shortcut checks and experiments I've found, that removing of "Sound 150%" applet cures the problem! If the applet is active - placed in the panel tray - the problem comes. Interesting, that if the volume is lowered down up to zero then the small LED indicator on F1-key comes on, volume upping - is off. Even volume-mute per mouse click direct in the applet makes the LED on/off, but the shortcut does not function as long as the applet is active. I've already tried to reinstall the applet, no effect. Regards

Open "Configure..."; in the "Shortcuts" tab, delete all the shortcuts or use the same ones as in Cinnamon. Please let me know if it works.

v5.1.1 is here. It now fixes a bug in Cinnamon's 'sound' applet, which will be corrected there later.
claudiux
claudiux-5 months ago
v5.0.0 is here. It modifies the presentation of settings, with tabs. It allows the user to change the icon colors.
claudiux

v4.7.0 is here - It adds the ability to redefine multimedia shortcuts, which is useful when your predefined shortcuts don't increase/decrease the volume per step (+/-) defined in this applet settings.
claudiux
claudiux-5 months ago
You should remove the bindings from the Cinnamon shortcuts though (in Cinnamon settings -> Keyboard).
mildly-useful
mildly-useful-5 months ago
Thank you very much for your work and continued updates for this throughout the years! I I do have a request, I installed this applet precisely so that my Volume Up and Volume Down keyboard shortcuts decrease the volume by custom increments, and not the default 5%. It's awesome that we can now set the max volume to 150%, but can you please make the applet also modify Cinnamon's default increment, so that the volume shortcuts work with the new increment setting? I'm using Linux Mint 21.2 and the volume increment setting doesn't seem to make any difference when it comes to shortcuts. And a custom shortcut like "amixer set Master playback 2%-" does not show any OSD message, which I really want, so I would prefer if the applet would just modify the default increment instead of messing with custom shortcuts.
claudiux
claudiux-5 months ago
Are you sure you've removed the sound@cinnamon.org applet from your panel? Do not use sound@cinnamon.org and sound150@claudiux at the same time. I have no problems with the multimedia keys or the OSD. If I set the pitch (+/-) to 3%, for example, each press of the volumeUp key increases the volume by 3% and the OSD shows the correct volume level.
mildly-useful
mildly-useful-5 months ago
Yep. I did remove the default cinnamon sound and only used sound150 instead on my panels. I can set the percentage to anything from 1% to 6%, but it will only work if I hover my mouse over sound150 and use the scroll wheel. Then, it will correctly adjust the sound by how much I desire and the OSD information is displayed correctly as well. The problem is, I cannot do the same if I use the "Volume up" and "Volume down" binds from the Keyboard shortcuts in Mint, in the Sound and Media section. And this is important to me because I want to adjust the sound while in a video or game, without looking at the panel. My kernel version is 6.2.0-39-generic, DE is Cinnamon 5.8.4. Other applets I have in the panel are things like psensor, weather applet, memory usage, etc. nothing related to sound.

With new commits in version 1.4.1 (thank you @claudiux), you must make theses changes until official themes are updated. (issue with height, player buttons and multi line titles) : --- (in root) Go to usr/share/themes (for official themes) --- --- or home/.local/ (for custom themes)--- and find cinnamon.css in themes folder (mint y, x...). In cinnamon.css find "sound-player-overlay" and below , remove "height" line. (example : height: 5.6em;)
claudiux
claudiux-10 months ago
Easier: In the applet.js script for sound150@claudiux, replace the line : `this.trackInfo = new St.BoxLayout({style_class: 'sound-player-overlay', important: true, vertical: true}) ;` by the line: `this.trackInfo = new St.BoxLayout({style_class: 'sound-player-overlay', style: 'height: auto;', important: true, vertical: true}) ;`

https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/32206/set-volume-from-terminal On my computer, with pulseaudio installed: $ pactl get-sink-volume 1 returns: Volume: front-left: 49118 / 75% / -7,51 dB, front-right: 49118 / 75% / -7,51 dB balance 0,00
PlateauRealm
PlateauRealm-1 year ago
This is a portion of the script that I am developing: #The Sound 150% Volume Control applet, if installed, can be adjusted to allow for exceeding the 100% volume level. #The Sound150 variable below is set to match the slider button positional value set in the Sound 150% app. Sound150=120 #Test for Sound 150% applet installation. If applet is not installed, set max_vol_limit to 100 if [[ -d "/home/$USER/.local/share/cinnamon/applets/sound150@claudiux" ]]; then max_vol_limit=$Sound150 else max_vol_limit=100 fi
PlateauRealm
PlateauRealm-1 year ago
BTW, on my system, pactl get-sink-volume 0 gives me the current default sink volume that the system tray volume setting controls. The setting that I am looking for, though, that I would like to reference, is not the current volume setting of 60%, but the max allowable volume button positional marker setting of 120% that I have set in Sound150. Unfortunately, this comment section does not allow for uploading of screen captures to more clearly detail what I mean.

Can you add short cut to increase and decrease volume? such as: ctrl + up to increase and ctrl + down to decrease.
claudiux
claudiux-3 years ago
Maybe you can use the system shortcuts: System Settings -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts tab -> Sounds and media I prefer not to add a shortcut in this applet, which could interfere with those of the system.
Ducvoccer
Ducvoccer-3 years ago
But as you know, system shortcuts only control 0-100% volume sound.
claudiux

You are right! I'll see what I can do with this applet or with Cinnamon.

Started having some odd behavior with my audio recently, and narrowed it down to this applet, which I love btw! While using the native linux Spotify app, when I would adjust the in app volume (scrolling on up on the volume control within the app), everything would be normal until I would make the final adjustment to max out the volume within the app. At that point, my global volume level would be instantly changed to 100%, regardless of what it was set to before (rip ears lol). I was removing various applets and what not trying to find the culprit, and I found that after removing the sound150 applet the behavior stopped. Since I love the applet and didn't want to give it up, I dug deeper, and ended up reading the change log which mentioned 100% volume being magnetic now. I found the relevant lines in sound150@claudiux/3.4/applet.js (lines 284-288) and commented them out, this has now fixed the issue for me. Sorry for the long comment, lol, this should probably have gone on GitHub, but I couldn't find the appropriate place to leave a bug report. Looking at the if statement I commented out, my assumption would be that one of the variables mentioned in there is somehow being referenced from Spotify rather than the applet. I'm sorry I can't be of more help, I'm sadly not a JavaScript guy, but hopefully this helps on some level. I really love this applet, and thank you good sir for the excellent work, I'm now forever addicted to having only 2% volume steps rather than 5% ones. :) Also, I'm running LInux Mint 18.3, Cinnamon 3.6.7, kernel 4.16 Thanks!

Hi @Dannation. Did you try to set the volume step at 1%? Normally, this cancels the magnetic effect, and allows you to fine-tune the sound volume. But I will make an option to cancel magnetic effect; it will be more elegant. Thank you for this report. Keep enjoying sound150 !

Hi! This weird thing is happening to me too. Sometimes when I'm on a call in Slack or whenever I volume up Spotify to 100% (tried lower values, 90% 50%, only happens when reaching 100%), general sound is increased to 100%... and yeah, rip ears lol

The next version (1.3.3) of this sound150@claudiux applet will be compatible with Linux Mint 17.3. If you want to test it before its disponibility in the repository, these commands can help you: * mkdir ~/git * cd ~/git * git clone -b sound150 --single-branch https://github.com/claudiux/cinnamon-spices-applets.git sound150 Then, open your file manager (nemo), press the F3 key. In the left part, display your ~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets directory ; in the right part, display your ~/git/sound150/sound150@claudiux/files/ directory. Remove the sound150@claudiux directory in the left part, then replace it the one is in the right part. Restart Cinnamon. Enjoy !

Thank you! You can now update to version 1.3.1, which is compatible with all themes. Please, could you translate in Russian the messages of this applet, using the file po/sound150@claudiux.pot and the poedit software? That would be very kind of you. Спасибо! Теперь вы можете обновить версию 1.3.1, совместимую со всеми темами. Пожалуйста, не могли бы вы перевести на русском сообщения этого апплета, используя файл po/sound150@claudiux.pot и программное обеспечение poedit? Это было бы очень мило с вашей стороны.

Please note that, by default, the maximum volume is set to 100% of nominal volume. You can change this in Settings... Make good use of it!
