Patch: Volume control settings

Your rating: None Average: 4.7 (14 votes)

Remove before updating to v3.0.0-3

Remove pre-0.4 versions before installing the newer ones.

Adds advanced settings for volume control to Sounds and feedback as well as Gestures.


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 Chinese (China), Chinese (Hong Kong), Danish (unfinished), Dutch, Dutch (Belgium), English, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Polish, Russian.

* I've made 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

cd /usr/share/themes/sailfish-default/meegotouch/z1.0/icons/
devel-su rm icon-status-ringtone*0.png

and repeat this for z1.25, z1.5, z1.75, z2.0.

Thank you for your support!

I think it's possible, but since we have no status bar when apps are open, it won't be so helpful. It's probably easier to use volume buttons or three-finger gesture.

This is true, but before I run the application I could see the current media volume status on home screen. So when I am on conference or any other critic place I can check the volume is sure 0%... This is just an opinion/thought. :)

Other think, in my opinion this icon is nicer than the other 2 type they were on the other patch and better fit in the Jolla design.

Repo not available! Looks like wrong version number.

Install the latest version, 0.2-2. You should go back and enter again to see the latest version (Warehouse bug).

Thank you by the way for translations. :)
