This package builds two packages: pasystray-git and pasystray-gtk2-git. You can't install them both, you'll need to pick which one to use. pasystray-git is the recommended one, which uses gtk3. pasystray-gtk2-git which is built against gtk2 is provided if you don't want to install gtk3.

To build the package, run:

$ makepkg -s

To install, run either:

$ sudo pacman -U pasystray-git-<version>.pkg.tar.xz


$ sudo pacman -U pasystray-gtk2-git-<version>.pkg.tar.xz

Please note that "makepkg -i" will try to install both packages, and fail with a conflict. The same happens with yaourt.

Thanks for the suggestion, I uploaded a modified version.

I propose adding

optdepends=('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')

or something similar to the PKGBUILD. Like that, it would be easier to find out which packages to install to un-grey-out the launch buttons in pasystray's onclick menu.

Great alternative to padevchooser, thanks

Setting servers/sources/sinks manually is not supported yet. Load module-zeroconf-publish on your remote system and module-zeroconf-discover on your local system, your remote sources/sinks should then be available to pasystray. You can then simply set the default source/sink or move a specific stream to your remote system.

In padevchooser I would forward my sound by clicking Default Server”-> “Other…”. In pasystray I do not see this option. What am I missing?

Thanks uthark, it's fixed now.

To build under x86 it is required to replace line

arch=('x86' 'x86_64') with the following:

arch=('i686' 'x86_64')

Nice app! It works great!

christoph.gysin commented on 2011-10-18 17:45

Still in an early alpha state. Can switch default source/sink, detect avahi remote source/sinks and move input/output-streams to other source/sink on the fly.

Comments and opinions welcome.
