    [Ubuntu 18.04] How to put bare sound applet in Metacity panel?

    I detest the Gnome 3 UI. So, I'm running Metacity.

    The gargantuan kitchen-sink indicator applet is total rubbish, I don't want all of it. I'm not alone in this thinking since there are individual applets available for most of what it provides.
    One applet I cannot find an individual version of is the sound-indicator applet. Is there any way to get a sound control in the panel without loading that overbloated kitchen-sink catch-all?

    As an alternative, is there a way to edit what gets put into the kitchen-sink applet so I can remove the bloat?

    Thanks.



    (I did attempt to search the forums. These forums and the advanced search in particular are not intuitive, so I didn't get very far in my search.)

    You can just use Pulseaudio to control all your sounds.
    Make sure the important piece is installed with:
    Code:
    sudo apt install pavucontrol
    to use it run:
    Code:
    pavucontrol
    Also there should still be this:
    Run:
    Code:
    gnome-volume-control-applet
    With realization of one's own potential and self-confidence in one's ability, one can build a better world.
