To use the applet, simply run the program. If you have a standards-compliant system tray on your desktop a small LASH icon (a cardboard box with a soundwave on it) should appear there. It is probably insensitive (greyed out), unless you were already running lashd or have the LASH_START_SERVER environment variable set to 1.

If you right-click the icon a menu will pop up where you can choose to start lashd. When lashd has started the icon should become sensitive (show colours), and you will be able to restore audio sessions, and when there is an active session, save it, close it, rename it or change its directory. You can also quit the applet from the popup menu.

You can also left-click the icon to open a message window that shows information about the events received from lashd.
