Circle Volume Indicator by midnighttokerkate Circle Volume Indicator by midnighttokerkate
UPDATE 11.16.13:  I regret to inform all you fine, fine, folk - I am no longer able to provide feedback for those of you having trouble setting up this Geeklet. To clarify, it's not that I don't want to provide assistance or anything like that, its just, honestly, I don't have the time these days. As I'm a full time student with  a full time job, which unfortunately leaves me with no free time. 

In addition, I don't even know if this geeklet works with the newest version of the OS X 'Mavericks' - as I have yet to test it. However, I have previously used it on OS X 'Mountain Lion' and 'Snow Leopard' OS X therefore I know 100% that this geeklet works if you have either of those OS X's. If something happens and for some reason it doesn't, then its you that made an error along the way, not the script or instructions. In that case, troubleshoot by just watching my youtube tutorial below and try deleting *everything* (empty trash SECURELY) and start over again from the beginning. 
My apologies again, folks. Thank you for all of your great compliments. Pip, pip, cheerio!

*UPDATE* 01.01.2013: Here is a fully functional update and was tested on an OS X 10.8.2 (ML).

New instructions and an updated script file will be located in the updated download file -- if you are having trouble with the geeklet, make sure you first trash the old circle_volumeindicator folder, then SECURELY empty the trash and download this updated version.
Thank you so much for everyones patience and so sorry for taking so long.


**I can not guarantee this geeklet works for other versions of OS X**

go here for a 'How To Video' by yours truly, :penguin: www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ROdui….

this is an update to the circle volume indicator found here fav.me/d492zpe.

after recieving many requests for a multicolored version as well as the PSD file, so here you go :).
if you are familiar with photoshop you should easily be able to figure out the method of my madness, but those who do not just send me a note.
for those of you that have already downloaded my original release you can simply use this zip as an add-on, simply add the folder "Images_Multi" to the original folder you downloaded from the first release.
oh and place the PSD where ever you prefer.

those of you that are downloading this for the first time, everything you need is in zip download. if you follow the instructions precisely you will have no problems.
again, if you have trouble or need help with something, just send me a note and i will do what i can.

thanks!

if you are having trouble getting it to run correctly try downloading this alternate script cl.ly/41222t3H3c272V0M0R2h , graciously provided by ~Sam-Pa.

Tested on OS X 10.10 Yosemite, working fine with no issues as far as I can tell. It's a nice geeklet that I would recommend to whoever else uses GeekTool.

Hey! I found that the 1.png is missing from all color folders except the "Images_Multi" folder, so when you mute the icon won't update. Easy fix but maybe you could update it for the others! Great tool anyway!

just tried it on mavericks, and it didn't work for me. Don't know if i did something wrong, so if some other Mavericks Users could try it out that would be sweet.

I'll have an update coming out this weekend that will fix this issue. I've been getting a few emails and notes about this but unfortunately I just haven't had the time to get around to fixing it. But no worried, I have solved the problem, I just need to upload and update the package, so hold tight. :peace:

I love your work I only have a proble,.
Until recently the script (white volume indicator) woked just fine, but now when I mute the system through the command F10 the indicator will keep showing the volume before muting it.

If I go down (F11 command) untile mute, instead, the indicator will show the mute icon!

Any idea?

Thanks!

I have a problem, the only way the indicator updates is if I open the script and click run. After that, when I move the volume up or down, it doesn't change until I open the script and click run again. I also saw the video but it was of no help. All I know is my refresh (for the shell and image) are set at 1 second, but unless I hit run, it doesn't ever change.... Do you know what's going on? I think the problem is in the applescript only. Please Help.

What operating system are you running on, Lion or Snow Leopard?
Also, send me the location of where you placed the 'Circle Volume Indicator' folder (its PATH) and I'll edit the scripts for you.
Hopefully, this will fix your problem, but if not we'll find a way to make it work so no worries. Also, make sure you have the updated version and GeekTool from the AppStore.

I love your work here! I do have one problem though; the only way the indicator updates is if I open the script and click run.

I may be overlooking something because I am rather new to Geektool, but all I know is my refresh (for the shell and image) are set at 1 second, but unless I hit run, it doesn't ever change....

Okay, I haven't used the circle volume for the latest update yet, let me set it up on mine (i run the same as you, 10.7.4) and that way I'll know if it's not working because of the Lion update or if it is something you might have just over looked. I'll let you know when I do.

Thanks very much! Hopefully I'm just overlooking something and it's not incompatible with Lion because this is by far my favorite script...

well love, i just tested it out and it worked just fine for me. have you tried watching my video tutorial? (the link is in the description) most people that have problems getting it to work or are just new to using GeekTool get the script working after watching. If you have already watched it, then just send me the PATH of where you stored the Circle Volume Indicator folder and i'll set it up for you.

Good news! I fixed it within the first 28 seconds of watching your video. I didn't realize there was an alt file.... Once I switched to that it works like a charm. Bravo m'lady... Bravo I say. Excellent work!

I'm still having issues with getting this geeklet to work.

I'm trying to use the new script, but to no avail. I'm going to try completely starting over, and see what happens.

Email me your current setup (VolumeIndicator.scpt & the 2 geektool shell commands) and I'll check them for you and we'll go from there. Also send me the CircleVolume folder path.

I noticed that in the shell geeklet, the command is supposed to be "osascript /Users..." There needs to be a space after the osascript command. Great work otherwise.

Hi there, love your work! I found however that

a) it does not support mute
b) it writes a new temp.png every time it runs

So I made a version of your script that fixes both those things. It was a great way to finally learn AppleScript as little!

The only problem is that while it writes nothing to disk when run from Apple Script Editor, it does when run via osascript, even if the volume does not change. I have no idea why that is or how to fix it.

In the meantime, see below for the script or view it at its paste bin for all the formatting and highlighting: [link]

property previousVolume : -1
property previouslyMuted : false
on run
set pathName to "/Users/kemodan/Documents/Geektool/Circle_VolumeIndicator"
set rawVolume to output volume of (get volume settings) as integer
if previousVolume is not equal to rawVolume then
set previousVolume to rawVolume
set finalVolume to rawVolume * 16 / 100 + 1 as integer
do shell script ("cp " & pathName & "/Images_White/" & finalVolume & ".png " & pathName & "/temp.png")
end if
set outputMuted to output muted of (get volume settings) as boolean
if outputMuted then
if previouslyMuted is not equal to outputMuted then
set previouslyMuted to outputMuted as boolean
set finalVolume to 1 as integer
do shell script ("cp " & pathName & "/Images_White/" & finalVolume & ".png " & pathName & "/temp.png")
end if
else
if previouslyMuted is not equal to outputMuted then
set previouslyMuted to outputMuted as boolean
set finalVolume to rawVolume * 16 / 100 + 1 as integer
do shell script ("cp " & pathName & "/Images_White/" & finalVolume & ".png " & pathName & "/temp.png")
end if
end if
end run

Works like a charm.

To me would be useful to have a difference more:

when muted (F10) it could show the mute symbol but also the volume it was before being muted in the ring (so that I know how much will it be when back).

when muted (F11; F11; F11...) it could show the mute symbol and the ring black.

I would also like it to be more sensible.
as you know you can shift volume by pressing ALT+SHIFT+F11 or F12 and the volume will only change a little.

The ring though only changes of two bars when the volume changes considerably. Could it be more sensible?

Hello Sam Pa,
First off, thank you for sharing your code.

I used your applescript code from Paste Bin (updated Sep27 2011)
and it is not working at all, It was working correctly before I updated the .scrpt file, except that it didn't work with mute.

I typed in the correct path;
/Users/xxxxxx/Documents/GeekTool/Circle_VolumeIndicator/

And I selected the color. Everything is spelled correctly I believe. And the image geeklet is pointed correctly to the temp.png.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Sentenial
