volcontrol is just a small shell script I wrote for my Acer Aspire 1300. I wanted to be able to use the volumecontrol keys on the keyboard so that it gave me feedback via an osd. I also wanted the mute button to automatically restore the old volume if it was pressed a second time, so that it unmutes the laptop. Please do not comment on poor code, this is my first a little bit more complex shellscript ever ;) Currently, I use the script in combination with mapped keys and the Fluxbox keymapper.

A download is available here.

To use volcontrol, you need to have aumix and xosd installed.
