    Volume control missing from launch panel

    I installed Lynx 10.04 from scratch and found the audio volume control is missing from the launch panel.

    Anyone else has this issue?

    Check if Gnome Volume Control applet is included in the System -> Preferences -> Startup Applications. It is called "Volume Control" If not add it:

    Name: Volume Control
    Command: gnome-volume-control-applet

    that will be for the next reboot, for right now press alt+f2 and type code:

    gnome-volume-control-applet

    Then push enter, this should make it appear right away.

    I installed 10.04 tonight and after a few reboots noticed the panel applet missing - thanks for this.

    Same here, thanks for your help. Is this a known gnome issue? In my case the control only disappeared a few days after the initial install and maybe 40 boot ups.

    At one point, I remember that I got a gnome-volume-control crashed notification, since then the volume control has been missing.

    Thanks for the fix.
