Audio-Classic - the AfterStep Classic Audio module


Audio-Classic is spawned by asclassic, so no command line invocation will work. From within the .steprc file, Audio-Classic is spawned as follows:
 Module Audio 
 or from within an asclassic pop-up menu:
 Popup "Module-Popup"
         Title   "Modules"
         Module  "Wharf"         Wharf
         Module  "FvwmIdentify"  FvwmIdent
         Module  "Audio"         Audio
         Module  "Pager"         Pager 0 3


The Audio-Classic module communicates with the AfterStep Classic window manager to bind audio sounds to window manager actions. Different audio queues may be assigned to any window manager action. Audio-Classic can be used with any independent audio player, and therefore requires no special audio library APIs of its own. Simple in its design, it merely binds the audio filenames to particular actions and forks off the audio player program with the appropriate filename when that action occurs.

Audio-Classic can also have builtin support for the rplay library.


Audio-Classic reads the same .steprc file as asclassic(1) reads when it starts up, and looks for certain configuration options:
*AudioPlayCmd /usr/bin/X11/demos/auplay
This determines the independent audio player program that will actually play the sounds. If the play command is set to builtin-rplay then the builtin rplay support will be used. For example:

*AudioPlayCmd builtin-rplay

*AudioDir /usr/lib/sounds
Specifies the directory to look for the audio files. This option is ignored when rplay is used.
*AudioDelay 5
Specifies that sound events will only be played if they occur at least 5 seconds after the previous event. Sounds events that occur during the delay period are ignored. This option is useful if you don't want several sounds playing at the same time. The default delay is 0 which disables the audio delay.
*AudioRplayHost hostname
Specifies what host the sounds will play on. The hostname can also be an environment variable such as $HOSTDISPLAY. This option is only valid with builtin rplay support.
*AudioRplayPriority 0
Specifies what priority will be assigned to the sounds when they are played. This option is only valid with builtin rplay support.
*AudioRplayVolume 127
Specifies what volume will be assigned to the sounds when they are played. This option is only valid with builtin rplay support.
*Audio window-manager_action audio_filename
Binds particular window manager actions to sound queues.
 *Audio startup
 *Audio shutdown
 *Audio unknown
 *Audio add_window
 *Audio raise_window
 *Audio lower_window
 *Audio focus_change
 *Audio destroy_window
 *Audio iconify
 *Audio deiconify
 *Audio toggle_paging
 *Audio new_page
 *Audio new_desk
 *Audio configure_window
 *Audio window_name
 *Audio icon_name
 *Audio res_class
 *Audio res_name
 *Audio end_windowlist


The invocation method was shown in the synopsis section. No command line invocation is possible. Audio-Classic must be invoked by the asclassic window manager.



This module is a port of the FvwmAudio module to AfterStep by Frank Fejes. The concept for interfacing this module to the Window Manager, is original work by Robert Nation.
