A new version of Sound Switcher Indicator — 2.3.0 — has just been released.
This version finally adds a frequently-requested feature: the ability of mapping global keyboard shortcuts to input and output ports.
The Preferences dialog has got a new button under Port settings, which can be used to assign or reassign a key combination for this port.
When you click it, a key selection dialog will be presented, which you can also close with Backspace to remove a shortcut or with Escape to cancel.
Here’s what it looks like:
In the case the chosen key combo is already mapped to another port, it will be cleared there and remapped to the current one.
My PPA provides packages for Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic, 19.04 Disco, and 19.10 Eoan. Bug reports are welcome at the usual address.
To install or update the application, please follow the steps described in the Installation section. ■
