Nice solution. I'm using it with alsa-plugins and this asound.conf<br>
<br>
# Start of /etc/asound.conf<br>
<br>
# Use PulseAudio by default<br>
pcm.!default {<br>
  type pulse<br>
  fallback "sysdefault"<br>
  hint {<br>
    show on<br>
    description "Default ALSA Output (currently PulseAudio Sound Server)"<br>
  }<br>
}<br>
<br>
ctl.!default {<br>
  type pulse<br>
  fallback "sysdefault"<br>
}<br>
<br>
# End of /etc/asound.conf<br>
<br>
so that I don't have the mess of two sound servers.<br>
It's dependencies can be found on<br>
<br>
<a href="https://www.archlinux.org/packages/extra/x86_64/pavucontrol/" rel="noreferrer" target="_blank">https://www.archlinux.org/packages/extra/x86_64/pavucontrol/</a><br>
<br>
and build directions on<br>
<br>
<a href="https://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/packages.git/tree/trunk/PKGBUILD?h=packages/pavucontrol" rel="noreferrer" target="_blank">https://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/packages.git/tree/trunk/PKGBUILD?h=packages/pavucontrol</a><br>
<br>
To get the source do<br>
<br>
git clone git://<a href="http://anongit.freedesktop.org/pulseaudio/pavucontrol" rel="noreferrer" target="_blank">anongit.freedesktop.org/pulseaudio/pavucontrol</a><br>
cd pavucontrol/<br>
git checkout 9b307dcfe2051caea7145c8ab48953bb4f57005c<br>
<br>
There is also pasystray<br>
<br>
<a href="https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/tree/PKGBUILD?h=pasystray" rel="noreferrer" target="_blank">https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/tree/PKGBUILD?h=pasystray</a><br>
<br>
It works fine on xfce4-panel and it can start other pulseaudio<br>
utilities that are listed in optdepends on above url.<span class=""><font color="#888888"><br>
