Hi nano,

Xfce4-volumed currently doesn't have a graphical user interface to change the track it controls, however you can already do it by changing an xfconf key (by default, the daemon will grab the track reported as master by your card, or the first available track if none is master). In a first time, you'll need to open xfce4-mixer and check the exact name of the track you want to control. I'll assume it is labelled "Master". This can change if your system is localized, however.

Then, type the following command:
xfconf-query -c xfce4-mixer -p /active-track --create -t string -s "Master"

It'll set the Master track as the active track for xfce4-volumed. The user interface may be available in XFCE 4.8 or 4.10. Sorry for the inconvenience in the meanwhile.

Changed in xfce4-volumed:
status: New → Invalid
