In case anyone is struggling to get volume-app to run in Window Maker you need to put "" in the RUN box not "volume-app" ;-)

Thanks for your time I can not make this work. I am sure this is due to operator error.

I followed the instructions given for wmix and can get a volume-app to work but not properly.
As soon as I try to alter the volume it dissapeares and seems to change the setting for "surround" in alsamixer. Unmuting "suround" in alsa mixer gets sound back. Touch volume-apps control and sound dissapeares again.

Thanks again for your time.

See comments under wmix for instructions on how to set up OSS compatibility.
