ossdevlinks - Open Sound System legacy device management utility. SYNOPSIS
ossdevlinks [-vr] DESCRIPTION
The ossdevlinks utility creates and manages old style (legacy) device files for OSS audio, MIDI and mixer devices. In previous versioms OSS used "flat" device numbering for the device files (for example /dev/dsp0 to /dev/dspN). OSS version 4.0 and later uses different naming scheme. The ossdevlinks utility is used to manage the legacy device names as symbolic links to the new style devices. OPTIONS
Normally ossdevlinks is used without command line arguments. However there are a few command line options. -f<name> Write legacydev file to <fname>. -N Do not actually modify device files -r Reset the legacy device numbering (do not use). -v Verbose output The -r option may invalidate audio device selections in the setup files of various applications. This is considered highly undesirable. Applications using wrong audio devices may cause serious security and privacy problems. For this reason the -r option should never be used unless there are no other ways to recover from serious audio/sound related problems. After that users should review the audio settings of all the audio applications they are using. SEE ALSO

ossxmix - Open Sound System GTK based GUI mixer program. SYNOPSIS
ossxmix [-Sbhx] [-d <dev#>] [-w <value>] [-n <value>] DESCRIPTION
ossxmix is a GTK+ based mixer applet that is used to display the mixer settings of physical and virtual audio devices. There can be several physical mixers for a single audio device. Mixers found on audio devices are controllers that set the volume, select the input, perform certain functions on the speakers or set various device characteristics. OPTIONS
-h Display usage instructions. -d<dev#> Display only mixer device dev#. If this option is not given then ossxmix will display all the mixers available on the system. -x Hides the "legacy" mixer controls. -w[value] Make the mixer slightly wider on the screen. This option affects only the selection boxes and peak meter LED bars. In most cases this option is not required. The value can be between 1 (default) and 4. -n[value] Make the mixer slightly narrower than normally. This may be necessary if the mixer is wider than the screen. The value can be 1 (default) or 2. -g[w:h] Start ossxmix window with dimnesions w:h. -b Start in background. -S Do not try to place an icon in the system tray. NOTES
o ossxmix without the -d parameter shows all the currently enabled mixers. o Standard gtk toolkit options like --display are available as well. SEE ALSO
