# What it is
This is designed to set your pulseaudio volume settings, muting, and default sink from the command line. It will even switch currently running streams to the new sink when you switch it!
Usage will be largely for folks who are using keybinds for volume, etc.
If you don't already have ruby installed, you might need to run:
sudo apt-get install ruby
then download the script:
wget https://github.com/uriel1998/volumerb/raw/master/volume.rb -O ~/volume.rb
sudo mv ~/volume.rb /usr/local/bin/volume
sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/volume
Then, presuming you're using Openbox, open up your rc.xml (probably ~/.config/openbox/rc.xml ) and add this code in the keybinds:
Then reconfigure openbox (or relog) and you should get some results!

Originally wrote this to work with ALSA cards - that's what I have. (see line 46) but the code at line 45 *should* work for anything that's set up as a device in PulseAudio. This is written to work with the version of PulseAudio I have on my system - 0.9.22. By perusing the online PulseAudio documentation, it looks like this *should* still work just fine for later versions. Please ping me one way or another so I can properly document/fix it...
