It's recommended to uninstall pre-0.4 versions before installing the newer ones.

Adds advanced settings for volume control to Sounds and feedback.

2.0.0+

It's featuring:

  • Ringtone volume step (10, 20) affecting default and ambience ringtone sliders as well as volume buttons
  • Volume buttons for ringtone volume control
  • 5-level* volume indicator (consistent with Silent indicator in appearance)
  • Three-finger gesture for media volume
  • Translation support; already Danish (unfinished), Dutch, Dutch (Belgium), English, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Polish, Russian.

* I designed 5 icons to have different indicators for 20, 40, 60, 80, 100. On 10%-step, it will be 10-30, 40-50, 60-70, 80-90, 100.

Help translate into your language!
Thanks to translation team!

Once the patch is installed, the settings can be changed easily from Settings > Sounds and feedback.

Will conflict with both three-finger volume control and volume buttons control only media-volume patches
Requires patchmanager

@alina, thanks a lot for optionally bringing back to old volume indicator icon with 2.1.0-5, which is working and looking fine for me.

Great patch!! I've updated to last version but it doesn't include new option translated

alina's picture

Oh, I should have checked every single file. Spanish translation file wasn't updated. Done now.

Thanks  for your report.

carmenfdezb's picture

Thanks!

Reverting to v2.10-2 is what I already chose to do, but I am afraid that will break in the future, e.g. with a SFOS update.
Meanwhile rememberd another workaround: Using the ringtone volume indicator of "Ultimate Statusbar patch" (though your old one looks a bit nicer, because the "musical note" is larger).

The update is on the way. Just waiting for translations. I'll publish it in 1-2 days.

Oh, the beautiful ringtone volume indicator icon (the "musical note") is replaced in Volume Control 2.1.0-3 (vs. v2.1.0-2).
While I understand that the new icon set is supposed to enhance readability on high-resolution screens, I liked the old, classic "musical note" a lot better and its meaning was much easier to comprehend intuitively. Any chance to bring it back, e.g. as an alternative ("classic") icon set?

alina's picture

Yeah, we could have an option. However, you can use older versions.

working perfectly on 2.1.1.12. thanx.

Great Patch, thanks a lot!

Just an observation for now (still needs more analysis):
When using the optional three finger gesture for volume control, some Android apps seem to lose focus, when in foreground. One needs to swipe to homescreen (task switcher) and tap on the app there in order to regain focus. Seen with Firefox 53, TurboEditor 2, but not with Jota Editor 0.2 or any SailfishOS app.

Thank you for your comment!

Yes, I've seen that problem, but nothing to do with the patch. The patch just enables the gesture. The bug seems to be in Android Support.

Dear Alina,

I tried both of the solutions you wrote to remove the patch but it is still stuck in the patchmanager and I cannot disable it. Thus I cannot even upgrade the OS to Iijoki. I even tried to reinstall and disable it, but it does not work. Please give a solution. Thanks in advance!

Again! Doesn't apply to SFOS 2.1.0.9

alina's picture

Just for one line of comment added! :/

eson's picture

Thanks for the fix!

I forget to turn off the patch when updating Sailfish OS. How can I remove the patch/restore the settings from the terminal?

alina's picture

Sorry, I rarely have Internet access these days. If you haven't found the answer yet, it's:

devel-su pkcon remove sailfishos-patch-volumecontrol
HtheB's picture

Thanks for the reply.

The package can be removed, but it's still failing to disable the patch itself, so it still stays visible (enabled) on the Patchmanager. :(

alina's picture

So try this command:

devel-su rm -r /usr/share/patchmanager/patches/sailfishos-patch-volumecontrol

Hi,

I'm loocking for a patch that allow to change the alarm clock volume. On my system, the alarm clock volume is always at the maximum, and, imho it is too high.

Can I do it with your patch?

 

Regards.

Vincent

alina's picture

No. It's somehow hardcoded in system files, `/usr/share/ngfd/events.d/clock.ini`

# Start fade at 0s, fade for 10s from level 10 to 100 (0.10 to 1.00)
sound.fade-in = 0,10,10,100

You can change the maximum value manually, but seems impossible to make settings for it.

vbelloir's picture

Thanks for your replay alina.

I will try to modify this file.

Bye
