doesn't phonon provide volume support nowadays?
Admittedly, you still need some backend installed. But you need that
anyway to play sounds in the first place.
Makes me wonder; if we want to have sound; we depend on xine or gstreamer,
right? I mean; depend as in a packaging manner. No sound without
installing some multimedia backend.
On that note; doesn't it make sense to tell people they need kdemultimedia
to have some sound? Assuming that kdemultimedia will actually pull in a
backend automatically (again, thinking packaging dependencies here).
Alternatively; (thinking a bit more long term now) someone should write a
applet we can ship in kdebase which only depends on phonon and is capable
of muting and altering main volume via phonon. Which then naturally does
not depend on any backend.
Just to point out that moving kmix to kdebase is by far not the only
solution to this also not exactly black&white problem ;)
