https://bbs.archlinux.org – Hey guys,Let me share a little piece of code I've put together recently. I'm using XMonad and one thing all the lightweight window managers always lacked was a nice notification when the volume is changed. What I'm specially fond of is the Apple-like notification you can get for example with Compiz. So I took bits and pieces of GNOME's notification-daemon, assembled my own and I present it here to you.The main point for Volnoti was to be absolutely independent of the system configuration and WM. Therefore, Volnoti doesn't read the volume level itself, but rather waits (HowTos)
