aumix is a small, easy-to-use program to control the mixer of your sound
card. It runs in text mode using the ncurses library, or from the command
line (non-interactively). It can read default settings from a file, and it
can also automatically save and restore the mixer settings at shutdown and
A wrapper script xaumix is provided that finds and invokes xterm or a
replacement. This is primarily for creating the best sized terminal window.
If you want a true graphical interface, install aumix-gtk instead. That has
the same functionality as this one in addition to offering a nice X GUI.
