PulseAudio Device Chooser (padevchooser) is a simple GTK tool which registers an icon in the tray area and allows quick access to some features of the PulseAudio sound server. Specifically it can do for you:

Everybody loves screenshots.

Current Status

Works perfectly.


There is not much to say. Just run padevchooser and see for yourself.


Currently, padevchooser is tested on Linux only.

padevchooser was developed and tested on Debian GNU/Linux "testing" from June 2006, it should work on most other Linux distributions (and maybe Unix versions) since it uses GNU autoconf for source code configuration.

padevchooser requires GTK 2.4, libnotify, GConf installed.

Obviously padevchooser requires an installation of PulseAudio (version 0.9.2), compiled with ZeroConf support. For being discovered correctly PulseAudio servers need to load module-zeroconf-publish and module-native-protocol-tcp.


As this package is made with the GNU autotools you should run ./configure inside the distribution directory for configuring the source tree. After that you should run make for compilation and make install (as root) for installation of padevchooser.


None so far.
