View Full Version : [ubuntu] can't find a volume icon

April 6th, 2009, 05:30 PM
I want to put a volume icon on my tool bar. I thought that I used to have one but I can't find it.

eee ubuntu asus eee 1000.

I just can't seem to figure out how to add icons.

Any advice?

Right click on top panel > Click on Add to Panel > Click on Volume Control > Add. That should do it.

Hope that helps.

the only option that I am given when I right click is "remove from panel"

what am I doing wrong?

Try clicking somewhere else on the panel.

The only way that I could get it so I could click somewhere esle on the panel was when I removed what was showing what programs were running. Now I can't get it back and I would like it back.

Nevertheless, I can now add or remove icons. But when I tried to add a volume icon I get a message about the applet missing and asks me if I want to delete it..

So I would like to get that applet back as well as my programs running thing.

the message is:

"panel encounted a problem while loading OAFIID:GNOME_MixerApplet"

How can I fix this without deleting it?
