Someone on the forums had me uninstall pulseaudio to get pSX working, and now I don't have a volume control icon on the panel and when choosing to add stuff to the panel it isn't available.I re-installed pulseaudio through the package manager, but I have a feeling it didn't install everything that uninstalled with it.
I am using the fully updated version of Ubuntu 10.4. The volume icon is missing from the top panel and adding the "notification area" does not do anything - I can double-click the icon, or drag it over, and nothing appears in the panel. Adding the "Indicator Applet" also has the same result. I do not know what applet to add, nor do I know why the volume icon is missing. The power icon, the network icon, the mail icon, and the rest of the applets are all there - only the volume icon is missing.
Also, when I press "fn + pg up or pg dn," it would usually change the volume and display a notification showing that the volume changed. This does not happen anymore: no notification, no sound change. I can still hear audio, but can not change the level.
Recently I removed uninstalled evolution and gwibber from lucid and removed the envelope icon from the top panel too. But along with it the volume icon also disappeared. How do I get the volume icon back?
I was having some problems with audio and java #post10609906), so I uninstalled pulseaudio, which removed the volume control icon from the notification area. However, even after reinstalling pulseaudio and ubuntu-desktop(which got removed), the sound control isn't there, although the internet connection icon in the notification area is still thereNote: Another thread said that adding notification area to the panel would restore it. I've tried that, but it only shows the internet icon and not the volume control.
Kwallet is off. Then I install a wireless device under WPA. Wired icon starts to change to wireless icon, but does not and goes back to wired icon. Hovering pointer over wired icon shows wired device installed as well as wireless device. How do I keep the wireless icon in place after installing WPA to wireless device?
Because of a horrible problem (volume bursting, this is known bug), I completely removed Pulseaudio and some related packages. So I'm now using pure ALSA, and it's working fine. Yet, the volume control tray icon was disappeared. How can I recover it?
everything was excellent till yesterday evening but from the evening, when i switched on my pc, the Network Connections icon is missing from the panel of my fedora 12 os. i'm being able to connect to internet from Systems->Preferences->Network connections & check Connect Automatically to my Mobile broadband connection. but i'm not being able to disconnect it. i've to remove the mobile phone from my pc.please put some light on how will I be able to disconnect it (without removing the phone)?
I feel little silly asking this, I accidently removed from my gnome panel my internet connection, volume control and battery indicator on F11. how can I add this back. It does not show up in the add to panel menu and the applications do not give you back the default feel.
I accidentally removed the volume control from the panel (top right). I added it again (Indicator Applet), but now it's not on the far right with the time/date and wifi icons; it's in the middle part of the upper panel. How do I add applets to the far right of the upper panel?
I boot up my machine today and the Volume Control, which I use a lot, is missing from my panel!Anybody know how I get that back? I figured I could just right-click the panel and choose it from "Add to Panel".. but there is no Volume Control in there?
I accidentally removed the volume control in my panel (upper panel, stock 10.10 desktop) and I can't get it back. It's not listed in the "Add to Panel" choices.What wizardry must I conjure to make it re-appear in my panel?
Yesterday my computer started acting up. I'm not sure if it had anything to do with the update, but it happened shortly after, so i'm thinking that it's likely.My laptop has one of those touch-pads that controls the volume. Now it won't work. I tried going into preferences<sound to change the volume, but that doesn't even work. As much as I change the volume, it just stays where it's at.
Volume control on the panel won't work either.Also, another problem I'm experiencing is that when I go on ..... all of the videos play really fast. =/ not sure if it's ubuntu related, but this problem started at the same time as the other.
I accidentally deleted my volume control from my top panel and it's not an option when I go on to 'add to panel' How do I get it back? The sound is half way down and the only control I have is on my crappy speakers so when I turn them up more to compensate, I get the buzzy noise they have?
my issue is as my Title "Lost Top Sound Icon & Can't control volume with Keyboard" OS: Ubutnu 9.10 x64 - Karmic Koala Lost the Top Panel Sound Icon, I even go to: System > Preferences > Sound Message Pops Up: Waiting for sound system to respond
Funny thing I do get Ubuntu OS Audio sounds Now as well I lost control of my Volume with my Keyboard, pretty sure it has to do with the same Sound icon in the Top panel that is missing The only way I can control Audio is Manually using: gnome-alsamixer 0.9.7
It sucks big time, because I can't control my Audio when ever I need to mute it or upper/lower it through my keyboard fastly when needed. having to manually opening an application to be able to change/control the Audio volume is a huge hassle for me
I am annoyed with the pop up of volume control notification on GUI of my Ubuntu 10.10 ,The volume slide bar moves automatically.Its flickering on my screen and hinders my work.I wonder why ,I am new to Ubuntu ,how to put off this notification I tried
but the notification icon is gone but a small volume control frame appeared from now-where giving the same frustration.( I have installed Ubuntu10.10 on HP Pavilion dv5-1015nr laptop un-installing the preloaded windows)
After a recent upgrade I have lost the top right icon in the top panel - so I cannot Set Status, Lock Screen, Guest Session, Switch User ..... Restart, Shutdown. I have right clicked on the top panel and installed the Shutdown icon so I can shutdown but I have lost all the other functions including the 60secs countdown. Is there any way I can get the standard top right icon in the top panel?
somehow I got rid of the mail icon on the Gnome panel which I used to check my Evolution Mail and Pidgin on the fly without going to Applications->Internet-> first. How can I retrieve this icon? I can't seem to find it.
My laptop(ubuntu 10.04) works great before ( with sounds )but after reboot,it has absolutely no sound.There is no sound icon on the top-right panel.When I try System > Preference > Sound, it show " waiting for sound system to response".
earlier today I was at my computer, and the update manager popped up. I installed the updates, and closed the manager. Now I have this pesky icon on my panel in the notification area that I simply cannot get rid of.It's a link to the update manager. How can I remove it?
I've upgraded from 10.10 to 11.04, and now I'm experiencing some problems with the displaying of panels and icons that I'm hoping someone can help me to fix.
Situation: Running 11.04 in latest virtualbox (4.06, with guest additions installed) on a macbook pro running snow leopard (10.6.7). I'm in gnome classic (no effects) because I'm not yet used to gnome 3 and compiz doesn't run all that well for me in this virtualization set-up. But the problem, described below, is consistent from gnome 3 to classic (with effects) to classic (without effects).
Problem: When I first log in after a reboot, everything looks great in the default settings (ambiance theme, I think), but after ~ 15 seconds, the panels and icons revert to an odd looking theme that I don't particularly care for. And trying to change the settings in the "Appearance" preferences is of no help, i.e., I can change the themes, but the panels and icons remain in a stock, old-school gnome-ish theme.
I use alsa, and I don't have a volume control applet on my Gnome Panel.When I right click and select "add to panel", there is nothing that has to do with "sound", "audio" or "volume" in the list, and the "Indicator Applet" or "Indicator Applet Session" things have no volume controls, or properties that would let you enable any sort of volume control.
How can I get a volume control in Ubuntu, so I don't have to run aumix in a terminal or something? I've got the thing working now. But does anyone know why the new, fancy "Indicator Applet" volume control doesn't appear? The Gnome Volume Control Applet isn't as nicely featured, although it actually works.
I've been using Linux since Redhat 5, it's beyond me why these sorts of problems are still around. Someone should just put a damn "Volume Control" element in the list of things to add to the panel, even if it doesn't work, perhaps showing an error message.
