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!
