USB Headset Buttons's purpose is to enable the Volume up and Down Buttons on my Logitech USB 30 Headset.

USB Headsets are very useful for VoIP applications like SIP Networks or Skype. On my headset I have volume buttons which need extra care to be taken of. This Application does it.

Requirements:

Linux 2.6
ALSA libasound2 header files

Just compile it using the Makefile. You should have the libasound2 header files
installed (under Debian: apt-get install libasound2-dev)

To run it, you can tell it on the command-line which devices to use:

-e: Input Event Device:
usually /dev/input/event?

To find the event node which corresponds to your headset go to /sys/class/input/

In the input? directories are name files which have the name of the device. The number is the same as the number for your /dev/input/event? node.

-s: ALSA Hardware
usually hw:0 for first Soundcard, hw:1 for second...

-n: Alsa Subdevice to use. Should be something like
'Speaker Playback Volume'.

What's New in This Release:

A note has been added to the README that this needs CONFIG_INPUT_EVDEV enabled in the kernel.
The -a switch has been added.
You can set how many steps are changed on a keypress.
