For a while now I get an error box that Gnome settings daemon cannot be started. Does it happen with on your PC's too or is it a bug? Thanks.

Remove libvisual-0.4-plugins solves this.

Same exact issue here

Removed libvisual-0.4-plugins and it works now.
Hope that's not a permanent solution, though :P. Also I don't know about you guys, but my volume control still doesn't show up in the top right now so it's not totally fixed.

You must add a new volume control to the panel > just right click and "add to panel".


This bug was introduced during RC freeze and its ongoing work for the moment, maybe we must wait for an update ???


Nevertheless, easy to remove this package.

Update accepted :)

libvisual-plugins (0.4.0.dfsg.1-2ubuntu4) intrepid; urgency=low

* New patch, 60_no-const-vispluginfo-in-nastyfft, the static VisPluginInfo
in nastyfft was declared as const, but libvisual write to its refcount
when it visual_object_unref()s it (nasty!). This is broken at various
levels: libvisual shouldn't be writing to this static plugin which is
allocated by a dlopen()ed plugin, and it should also honor the "const
VisPluginInfo" API... Anyway, nastyfft was the only occurrence and this
fixes the crash for now; LP: #287448.


Also new walk around see bug.... I don't see any reasons for enabling the ppa
