Xfce PulseAudio Plugin 0.3.1 Released

Xfce PulseAudio Plugin 0.3.1 has been released with some handy new features! But I’ve never posted about this plugin before, so we’ll start with a proper introduction.

Xfce PulseAudio Panel Plugin

This plugin for the Xfce panel allows the user to adjust the audio volume of the PulseAudio sound system easily. As of the 0.3.0 release, this plugin was extended with support for controlling multimedia players via the MPRIS DBUS interface. This latest release lets users toggle the default audio input and output devices.


  • Control device volume from 0% to 100% and beyond
  • Instantly mute volumes by middle-clicking the plugin or clicking the mute toggle
  • Launch the configured audio mixer
  • Open, raise, or control playback from known media players (since 0.3.0)
  • Select default input and output devices (since 0.3.1)


Xfce PulseAudio Plugin 0.3.1 features a convenient device switcher for both input and output audio devices.
