Ubuntu Sound Menu plugin for Exaile music player

Exaile music player users who wouldn’t mind controlling playback via the new Ubuntu Sound Menu can now get in on the action thanks to a new plugin created especially for this purpose.

The plugin, created by Sunng. enables control of Exaile via the sound menu indicator. It supports all of the functions you’d expect: forward, backwards, pause/play, track info and cover art.


The project is hosted at github,


Exaile now joins Rhythmbox, Banshee, XNoise and Clementine in offering support for the Sound Menu.

I for one love the continued integration between so many fantastic players and Ubuntu’s Sound Menu. Great work Sunng!
