Description Jens Rutschmann 2006-10-03 18:09:05 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.4)
Installed from:    Gentoo Packages
Compiler:          GCC 4.1.1 
OS:                Linux

The attached patch allows the user to choose which action a middle mouse button click on the tray icon executes:
 - Default is the old behaviour (open / close the mixer window)
 - New behaviour is muting / unmuting

I created a new checkbox in the configuration dialog to change the behaviour.

I'd love to see this code in the repository because I mute / unmute far more often than I use the mixer window (which is also accessible by the left mouse button click and the popup menu).

Comment 5 Hans Chen 2007-09-28 12:18:49 UTC
Is this feature included in the latest KDE versions or just with Kubuntu?
Comment 6 Jens Rutschmann 2007-09-28 13:31:19 UTC
As far as I know the code is not in the official KDE repository yet. I never knew that Kubuntu has this functionality.
Comment 7 Christian Esken 2007-11-11 01:00:15 UTC
I have implemented the "middle mouse button mute/unmute" for KDE4.
The patch from Jens Rutschmann as seen in Comment #1 is not in the KDE3.x branch, as I am only doing bugfixing there (maintenance mode).

Conclusion: Will not be done for KDE3. Is done for KDE4. => Fixed
