...especially when watching video through external monitor (i.e. some distance from laptop)?

I realize there are a couple of answers for this but they are beyond me, a relative beginner. Is there a simple way to do this, like we have Volumouse or X-Mouse Button Control with Windows?

  • If I hover my mouse over the Volume Control panel applet, my mouse-wheel adjusts the volume higher or lower. If I click the mouse-wheel, the volume mutes & unmutes. I'm using Lubuntu 19.10 though (I don't have a 19.04 'up' to test there currently). manual.lubuntu.me/stable/5/5.1/lxqt-panel.html?highlight=volume in the manual – guiverc Oct 21 at 5:37

or from the Lubuntu manual

In the system tray there there are multiple widgets. With the volume applet you can change the volume by using the mouse-wheel with the mouse over the speaker icon or left click the speaker icon and drag the volume up and down. To mute the volume with the button at the bottom of the volume meter or middle click on the volume applet.

I tested this and it works in both Lubuntu 19.04 & 19.10.

  • For our second TV, I watch through my computer, extended to an older TV (as a monitor) via HDMI cable. Our provider allows for this, so we can watch live TV and recorded PVR via the local network. When I do this, it is entirely fullscreen, which makes for what you mention impractical (none of these controls show while fullscreen). What I need is instant volume control with the mouse-wheel, while watching fullscreen online TV. – earthpages Oct 22 at 2:14
