The linux box sitting 15 feet away from me has an internet radio station playing on amarok. The next song comes on, and it's louder than the other songs.
I really don't want to get up.
Surely some linux user has had this grave problem before. I was about to do a google search for an app on my Windows 7 laptop that would do it, then i realized I already had Putty set up to connect to my pc. All I need is the command for the command line.
To reduce your volume 15%
aumix -v-15Too much? Increase 5%
aumix -v+15(You may need to install the aumix package to use the commands above)
apt-get install aumix
I'm sure there's many other ways to pull this off (it is Linux, after all). Feel free to share if you have one!
