Horizontal and customizable OSDs



Horizontal OSD

Make volume and brightness OSDs horizontal on your Cinnamon desktop environment. It's customizable so you can make your own OSDs too.

OSD Preview:


Alongside making your OSDs horizontal, there are lots of configuration options so you can customize OSDs as you want. Such as:

  • Position, size, border-radius and hide timeout of osd window
  • Size of icon, label and level bar
  • border-radius of level bar
  • Colors

Also you can write your custom CSS for all those elements.

Im more or less new to Linux, and I cant get this to work. The OSD isint there. I installed it through linux mint Exentions, enabled it, turned it off then on, reloaded it, rebooted, and i just cant get it to appear. There was no osd for the volume before i installed this exention, so maybe thats the issue. Thank you.

Try using the sound150 applet: https://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/applets/view/306 There are options concerning the OSD in the Sound tab of its settings.

This is one of the first things I install whenever I do a fresh install of my system. I had to make an account just so I could leave this comment. Thank You @berk-karaal !

This is perfect! It's way better than the default pop-up and should be the new default!

Wow, this is great! Mega improvement. I set the X position % to 85 instead to help keep it even more low-profile. To have this extension makes me never want to go back to the old style. Thanks Berk!
