Volume scrolling set

#1 Post by balarm » Tue Jan 09, 2018 4:13 pm

Hi everybody,you can set the volume by scrolling on the it's icon-panel from 0 > 100% .
To raise it more (153%) it's necessary to Open Mixer and set it manually. Isn't it possible doing it by scrolling???
Thanks for any help.

If you set the slider all the way to the right (~150%) on the Output Devices tab of the mixer, does it work then?

I think you can use the pulseaudio plugin for the xfce-panel to do that. Not at a Xfce machine at the moment to check.

The plugin you mention is installed and works fine but if i want to increase it I have to do it manually by OpenMixer>Output Device slide to 153% every time.
No problem if i have to do (increase) it manually every time.
Thanks!

THat is the way it works on my system as well. Mouse scroll will take it to 100%. To get beyond that you have to open the mixer.

there is another volume control i used in the mx15 days. it would let you ramp up beyond 100% with just the mouse. I'll check my stuff and see if I can find the name of it. it was in the debian jessie repo.

I use Pasystray for volume control, it's also available in the Debian Stretch repo

It'll go well past 100%, I've had it up to greater than 1000% before I got tired of spinning the mousewheel.
