GMPC Volume widget.

Tags General 

The  GtkVolumeButton has been irritating me for a while now, it is so easy do accidently slide the volume completely up or down when  you just want to adjust it a bit. Even now after they fixed the annoying bug when the button was near the corner of the screen.

So after a suggestion from gregf, I decided to write a new widget. So I decided to write my own.

It is not very nice, but it gives you an indication of the level a lot quicker, and you can change the volume a lot easier.

I know it is not good for consistency and all but it works better.  (Not happy with how it looks.)
Also my music harddisk is failing, i been getting more and more corrupt files (thanks for flac and png that actually detect this!)

These errors should not be destructive, and smart does not report it as being failing (100 is good, 0  bad it is still 100). But it failed terrible and I probly gonna have to re-rip stuff as this error has not been reported.

Damn now to get the money for a new disk.
