GLASHCtl is a control applet for LASH. This is the first release. Other
than my code it contains eggtrayicon.h and eggtrayicon.c (by Anders
Carlsson and Jean-Yves Lefort), taken from libegg, and the LASH icon (by
Thorsten Wilms) from the LASH project. A patch from Florian Schmidt,
adding session renaming and directory switching, has also been applied.

This is a simple applet for controlling the LASH Audio Session Handler.
When you run it it will appear as a small LASH icon in your
area" or "system tray" (if your desktop manager is compatible with=20
freedesktop.org's "System tray" standard,=20
http://www.freedesktop.org/Standards/systemtray-spec). This is typically
somewhere in the panel in KDE or GNOME.
To build this program you will need the following libraries:
* libgtkmm (2.6.4 or newer)
* libvte (0.11.15 or newer)
* liblash (0.5.1 or newer)
You will also need to have the LASH server, lashd, somewhere in your
To build the program with the default configuration (install
compile with -g -O2 etc), simply type 'make' in this directory. If you
change the configuration, use the configure script (run configure --help
details). When you type 'make' a program called glashctl should be
and when you type 'make install' it should be installed on your system.
You need to install it before you run it, otherwise it won't find the
icon file and will not start.
To use the applet, simply run the program. If you have a
system tray on your desktop a small LASH icon (a cardboard box with a=20
soundwave on it) should appear there. It is probably insensitive (greyed
out), unless you were already running lashd or have the
environment variable set to 1. If you right-click the icon a menu will
where you can choose to start lashd. When lashd has started the icon
become sensitive (show colours), and you will be able to restore audio=20
sessions, and when there is an active session, save it, close it, rename
or change its directory. You can also quit the applet from the popup
You can also left-click the icon to open a message window that shows=20
information about the events received from lashd.
The LASH icon was created by Thorsten Wilms for the LASH project
I know that the GNOME HIG discourages using the notification area for=20
permanent icons and icons that have actions other than just opening a
associated with them, but until there is a standard for writing normal
applets that work in both KDE and GNOME and in other window managers
