If you have ever struggled to change from one audio device to another, you’d surely appreciate having a simple click-click method for making that change. The folks over at OMG! Ubuntu have hipped me to the existence of just such a switcher.
It can easily be done by adding the following repository (or PPA) through your Terminal:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:yktooo/ppa
You will then be able to install it using your preferred method, either through the Ubuntu Software Center or through a Terminal:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install indicator-sound-switcher
That’s the long and short of it. Hope that makes your lives that much better.
