asmix - the AfterStep volume control knob SYNOPSIS
asmix [-h] [-V] [-iconic] [-shape] [-withdrawn] [-geometry [+|-]x[+|-]y] [-channel channel-id] [-exe command] [-device mixer-device] [-name window-name] DESCRIPTION
The asmix is a X11 application that acts as a volume control knob for the /dev/mixer device. The applet provides a distinctive AfterStep window manager look. The best thing about this applet is that you do not have to learn how to use it. If you used any volume knobs before - you know how to operate this one. If you never came across such a thing then just grab the knob with the left button of your mouse and turn it into the position you like. CONFIGURATION OPTIONS
-h Prints a short description and usage message. -V Version control. Prints the version of the applet. -geometry [+|-]x[+|-]y Displays the window at the specified location on the screen. This works as standard X Windows geometry option. -iconic Starts the asmix application in the iconized mode. The icon has the same appearance with the main window. -shape Starts the asmix application without groundplate. -withdrawn Starts the asmix applet in the "withdrawn" mode. Necessary to be able to dock it to the Window Maker's dock. -channel <channel-id> Specifies the channel to control (default: volume). The possible channels include: volume, pcm, bass, treble, synth, speaker, line, mic, cd, imix, pcm2, record, igain, ogain, line1, line2, line3, digital1, digital2, digital3, phone-in, phone-out, video, radio, monitor. Note that not all systems support all channels. -exe <command> The applet will execute the specified command on a mouseclick with the middle mouse button in the window. -device <mixer-device> The applet will attempt to opern the specified mixer device instead of the standard /dev/mixer. -name <window-name> The applet will set the name of the window to the specified window-name instead of the standard "asmix". This is useful when swal- lowing multiple instances of asmix into the AfterStep Wharf. INVOCATION
asmix was written to be swallowed by the AfterStep wharf module, but it can be used with everything else too. A common invocation is the command line: user@host[1]% asmix & Another way to call asmix is from the AfterStep Wharf: *Wharf asmix nil Swallow "asmix" asmix -shape & This line, when placed in the wharf file in the users Afterstep configuration directory will cause asmix to be a button on the Wharf (1) button bar under the afterstep (1) window manager.

asclock - the AfterStep clock SYNOPSIS
asclock [ -help] [-12 | -24] [-shape] [-position [+|-]x[+|-]y] [-exe program] [-theme dir] [-led color] [-noblink] [-dock] [-version] DESCRIPTION
The asclock is a clock written to emulate the date/time application on the NEXTSTEP(tm) operating system. asclock supports multiple lan- guages, military and AM/PM time formats, program execution, and the shape extension to X-Windows. CONFIGURATION OPTIONS
-help prints the usage message: usage: asclock [-options ...] where options include: -12 12 hour format -24 24 hour format -exe <program> program to start on click -led <color> color of the led -position [+|-]x[+|-]y position of asclock -shape without groundplate -theme <dir> theme directory -noblink don't blink -dock without window decorations -version show version information -12 or -24 sets the desired time format to either twelve hour with AM/PM ( -12 ) or military time ( -24 ). If no option is given military time is used. -shape turn on shaped window support for asclock. When this is turned on the asclock windows will only appear to be the led and date pad. By default shaped windows are turned off and the clock will appear on a 64 pixel by 64 pixel base. -led <color> specifies the color of the led. To find out what colors are available, try showrgb(1) (part of X11). -position [+|-]x[+|-]y specifies the starting position of asclock. The [+|-] works like the standard X-Windows x/y geometry option. -exe <program> specifies the application to start when the pointer is activated over asclock. To invoke applications with parameters, you have to set quotes around the command. See example below... -noblink specifies if asclock should blink. -theme <dir> specifies the theme to used. A theme consists of a directory containing 8 xpms and a position file called 'config'. Read the Themes section. -dock tells the window manager not to put window decorations arround asclock, useful for docking with Window Maker. Note that in several window managers this causes asclock to ignore the position specified with -position (if present). INVOCATION
asclock can be called from one of many ways. The most common invocation is the command line: [user@host] ~% asclock -12 -exe 'xlock -mode hop' & Another way to call asclock is from the window manager: *Wharf - - MaxSwallow "asclock" asclock -theme shape -12& This line, when placed in the .steprc file in the users home directory will cause asclock to use the shape extensions so that it will be a button on the Wharf(1) button bar under the afterstep(1) window manager. THEMES
A theme consists of a directory containing 8 xpms and a position file called 'config'. All tiles within the same xpm must have the same width or height, except the colon which has half the width of the other digits. The pixmaps are called: clock.xpm, date.xpm, led.xpm, month.xpm, weekday.xpm, hour.xpm, minute.xpm, second.xpm. For a full description of the format, take a look at README.THEMES. BUGS
