RunIT-QT 0.5 & Vol2x-QT5 released

Two new and interesting releases today. RunIT-QT upgrades to 0.5. and Vol2x upgrades to QT5.

RunIT-QT has gone through code cleanup and now it uses only the modules it needs. Both, have a new outlook and they come with icons also. I used Adwaita icons and I compiled them directly to python files. The previous makes installation and upgrading easier – since importing from other files is non-existent. Also, there is plenty of new code: Vol2x-QT5 and RunIT-QT 0.5 each have well over 1000 lines.

Vol2X upgrades to QT. Usability is improved.

Upgrading/Installation for PostX 0.4/0.4.1 (in terminal)

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

For RunIT-QT see the previous release posting. It contains all the needed instructions.

Vol2x needs python-pyqt5 python3-pyqt5 python python3. The actual package names might differ depending on the system. Furthermore, python should be installed by default in most system. In reality the only package that you might need to install, in regard to python, is python-pyqt5 or similar.

Edit. You must also have pulseaudio and pulseudio-utils installed to achieve correct and complete functionality.

Vol2x-QT5 features

Slider that lets you control 5 devices. This means that the volume will change from your Bluetooth, HDMI or regular sound device etc. when slider is moved.

Icons with tooltips. Icon pressing changes slider position as well.

Has a button for Pavucontrol in case more sound management is needed. Pavucontrol is not a forced dependency: if you want to use it then the button is there to help.

Pressing escape key (The ESC key from the keyboard) will quit the program.
