NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     soundscheme - audio cue server (daemon)

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     soundscheme [-default_bell	[bellName]] [-no_default_bell] [-device	<dev>]
     [-force_reset] [-no_force_reset] [-name <name>] [-aux <filename>]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     soundscheme is an X-based server daemon which provides high-level audio
     playback services for applications.  Based	on the audio and audiofile
     libraries,	soundscheme mixes and plays sounds on demand as	requested by
     multiple client programs using a single audio port.  Each client may
     provide an	X resource file	which specifies	a palette of sound names and
     the mappings of these names to soundfiles.	 Named sounds are activated
     within applications using function	calls from the daemon's	client

     The primary client	for soundscheme	is the IRIX Interactive	Desktop.  A
     handful of	sounds have been assigned to functions such as launching
     applications and manipulating file	icons.

     The soundscheme server is started automatically at	login from the
     Xsession file for SGI's IRIX Interactive Desktop user environment.

     In	addition, soundscheme can optionally produce the default system	bell
     in	lieu of	the X server.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

     -default_bell [bellName]
	  Intercept bell events	from the X server and produce the default
	  system bell with the scheme resource given by	bellName. This also
	  turns	the X The default for bellName is "Beep," which	causes the
	  soundfile given in the scheme	resource "Beep"	to be played.

	  Do not intercept keyboard bell events	from the X server. This	is the

     -device dev
	  Send all sounds to the audio device given by dev.

	  When soundscheme exits, force	the X server to	turn its internal bell
	  on. Normally this is done only if the	X server bell was on when
	  soundscheme was started.

	  When soundscheme exits, leave	the X server bell in the state it was
	  in when soundscheme started. This is the default.

     -display dpyName
	  Use the X display given by dpyName.

     -name name
	  Use the given	name for resources. By default,	soundscheme looks for
	  X resources for "soundscheme."

     -aux filename
	  Override default desktop sounds defined in the
	  /usr/share/data/sounds/soundscheme/schemes/defaultScheme.ss file
	  with same-named sounds specified in filename instead.

HARDWARE    [Toc]    [Back]

     soundscheme requires an SGI system	with the Iris Audio Processor.

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

     To	disable	soundscheme from playing sounds, select	Desktop	> Customize >
     Sounds and	click to uncheck the Desktop Sounds toggle.  Likewise, to
     enable sounds again, make sure this box is	checked	on.  Changes to	this
     setting will take effect immediately for some desktop applications, but
     not take effect until the next login for other applications.

     To	change the output level	of sounds, use apanel, the system audio
     control panel.  This panel	controls the sound level of all	applications
     using audio, including soundscheme.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

     See the ALintro(3a) reference page	for more about the audio library.
     Also see the apanel(1) reference page.  See the dmedia_eoe	release	notes
     for important information regarding customization of soundscheme
     resources.	 See the desktop_eoe release notes for instructions on
     changing the sounds played	in the desktop (does not require root
     permission	in IRIX	6.5).
