I won't remove the menu items in pasystray to those applications as long as they are being provided by distributions.

If Arch removes those packages, I'll happily remove them from both the source and the PKGBUILD.

The PulseAudio page "The Perfect Setup",
There are several auxiliary GUI tools for the PulseAudio sound server:
PulseAudio Volume Control
PulseAudio Preferences
For basic volume control, use the utility provided by your desktop environment. Alternatively pavucontrol can be used, with the advantage that it maps more closely to the inner workings of PulseAudio.

There is also the somewhat deprecated PulseAudio Volume Meter. The two utilities PulseAudio Manager and PulseAudio Device Chooser are obsolete and should not be used.


'paman: Launch PulseAudio manager from tray icon'
'pavucontrol: Launch PulseAudio mixer from tray icon'
'pavumeter: Launch PulseAudio volume meter from tray icon'
'paprefs: Launch PulseAudio preferences from tray icon'

Perhaps it would be best to remove the references to pavumeter, the PulseAudio Volume Meter, and paman, the PulseAudio Manager, in the optdepends=(...), based upon the current PulseAudio documentation.

It seems that makepkg has changed its git behaviour.

I uploaded a new version, let me know if that fixes it for you.

==> Connecting to GIT server....
You asked to pull from the remote 'origin', but did not specify
a branch. Because this is not the default configured remote
for your current branch, you must specify a branch on the command line.

Great little app, thanks!

This was added a while ago:

But apparently I never pushed the latest change to AUR. Sorry about that, and thanks for the heads up!

Had to add --sysconfdir=/etc to the pgkbuild file after
./configure --prefix=/usr
to get the autostart working out of the box. Maybe it should be fixed?

Please fix the version number of your package according to

Specifically: If tag contains a prefix, like v or project name then it should be cut off

Please remove the replaces section of this pkgbuild, otherwise you cannot have both the git and non-git versions of pasystray in a repo without it causing pacman to have a whinge every update. See here:

and also section 6 here:
