View Full Version : [ubuntu] Mute microphone key not working under Cinnamon

April 3rd, 2014, 05:30 PM
Hi there,

I am runnning ubuntu 12.04 on a Lenovo T430 and I recently installed Cinnamon 2.
Unfortunately the mute microphone button (which I use a lot on conference calls) on the keyboard is not working even though it works just fine under Unity.
I was able to add a keyboard shortcut with the command "amixer set Capture toggle" which works, but I need it to display a notification that lets me know whether the mute is on or off.

Can you help me in setting up the notification or to somehow copy what unity does to make it work properly?

Thanks a lot

or better, is there a way I can log what action unity takes when I press the mute button, so that I can then implement the same under unity?
