Version 0.1 released


Polypaudio Manager (paman) is a simple GTK frontend for the polypaudio sound server.

Everybody loves screenshots.


With the current version of paman you may browser most of polypaudio's internals. There is support for changing volume of sinks and sink outputs. You're able to play samples from the sample cache.


There is not much to say. Just run paman and see yourself.


Currently, paman is tested on Linux only.

paman was developed and tested on Debian GNU/Linux "testing" from July 2004, it should work on most other Linux distributions (and maybe Unix versions) since it uses GNU autoconf for source code configuration.

paman requires gtkmm and glademmm installed.

Obviously paman requires an installation of polypaudio (version 0.5).

If you want to have the "Volume Meter" buttons working, your need to install pavumeter.


As this package is made with the GNU autotools you should run ./configure inside the distribution directory for configuring the source tree. After that you should run make for compilation and make install (as root) for installation of paman.


None so far.
