I want to achieve simple thing - control audio volume in Smplayer using mouse wheel. The tricky part is that I need to control the master volume on my AV receiver because the audio in videos is played as bitstream (DTS/AC3 over SPDIF). I'm able to modify the mouse wheel actions in mplayer but unfortunatelly Smplayer doesn't allow such remapping: http://smplayer.sourceforge.net/foru...php?f=2&t=6077
I already use xbindkeys with xvkbd for application specific remapping of both keyboard and mouse. I can remap the wheel for Smplayer window but I'm unable to figure out how to make sure the wheel will work for other applications as well - I'm just unable to simulate mouse wheel action for applications other than Smplayer. (Or is there any other way how to not modify the button for other applications?)
If I try only simulating the wheel, it doesn't work...
"xdotool click 4"
m:0x0 + b:4
"xvkbd -text "\m4""
m:0x0 + b:4
However if I add "sleep 0.2" before xvkbd or xdotool, it works (but this is unacceptable delay for me). Also if I try to simulate wheel on keyboard press, it works even without the sleep.
Any help or suggestion?
