Thank you very much!
I've had to reboot after installing Veromix, and also uninstall "pulseaudio-equalizer" for some conflicts. I have no problem with plasma-desktop I had mentioned on page 10. Then I'll do more tests and I will report you if I have any problem. Thanks!

Is it just?. the latest version defaults to non monochrome icon. However when I remove it and add it again it uses the monochrome icon until the next restart

The icon in the systray? Sound like that: http://code.google.com/p/veromix-plasmoid/issues/detail?id=52&colspec=ID%20Type%20Status%20Priority%20Summary%20Modified

The textual description overlaps the 'thumb' of the slider:

The popup menu of the 'default sink' combo is clipped:
http://imagebin.org/158012

Also. perhaps 'default output' would be more user-friendly than 'default sink'?

ok - not shure if I can do something about it (the old implementation was much less performant, so I don't wanna go back)

You are right - I will change that

Just the lags in some transitions annoy sometimes but that is entirely Plasma’s fault since it happens elsewhere (network management plasmoid for example) as well.

Just one minor thing: Is it possible you implement some queries about the application’s name that is displayed in the list?
FOr example instead of „knotify: Playback Stream” it should say “System Notifications” with an appropriate kde icon.

And the player controls are awesome but when there is no Album cover displayed there should either be a generic CD case icon (like Amarok uses) or no free space, but now there is a lot of wasted space which makes the player controls being left alone somewhere :)

Great work on this; it really should be the default on Pulse-enabled systems. Do you think you could add an option for disabling the popup tooltip on volume changes (so that fullscreen Flash windows don't close whenever you change the volume)?

Yes I will add that option. Thanks for the tipp!

Only feature request... a beautiful OSD and Bangarang control.

After that, please, kill KMix for good! THIS ROCKS! And also it happens that with KDE 4.6 KMix is absolutely broken with Pulse, so you win!

Per default bangarang is on the ignore-list (see veromix-settings "Media Player Controls") - last time I checked it, bangarang was not working:

Please try to remove bangarang from the "ignore list". If the controls then don't work, you can try to add org.mpris.bangarang to the list of "mpris2 Media-players"... if it is still not working, you should report a bug against bangarang, because almost all other players work... If it works please tell me, so I can remove bangarang from the ignore-list.


@OSD: I noted the your wish here: http://code.google.com/p/veromix-plasmoid/issues/detail?id=48

I've been using Veromix on and off for quite some time now. But the latest version has a problem. It doesn't save any settings. I change the settings, click OK, then go back to the settings and everything is back to what it was before I changed it.
Using KDE 4.6 on Kubuntu 11.04, but the problem also exists on KDE 4.5 on Kubuntu 10.10

What could the problem be?

Never mind, it works now.
Only problem left is that it doesn't show VLC's cover art.

Do you know another "remote control" that supports vlc-cover-art?

According to

I dont mind at all, i feel honored.

although i do a lot of advocating for kde and kde apps, and even being a kubuntu ninja and do a lot of packages, i dont develop anything for kde (not yet anyway), so since im not a developer i dont have a planetkde account :( feel free to advertise this review there :)
