Sound and iPod with Awesome Windows Manager

Just a short note about the great Awesome window manager.
There was no sound with some applications. There are 2 programs to know about sound control : alsamixer (command line) and pavucontrol (manage PulseAudio with a simple GTK interface).

For the iPod, I am using RockBox, gtkPod and gpodder. Nothing fancy, but it does the job quickly.

Just have to remember to manually mount the iPod, by adding this in /etc/fstab:
/dev/disk/by-label/IPOD /media/IPOD vfat defaults,umask=000,auto,rw,user 0 0

Also a simple trick to eject the iPod : eject /media/IPOD
