Missing Debian Sound Control

Posted 03-18-2011 at 12:18 PM by drask

I installed Debian the other day. So far it is working really well for me. I discovered one minor annoyance today that took me a few minutes to figure out and fix.

Right-clicking the volume control icon in the Notification Area brings up a context menu. The first entry is "Mute", the second is "Open Volume Control".

When I tried clicking on the second one, I kept getting an error message "Can't open gnome-volume-control no such file". I also had no "Sounds" entry under the System->Preferences menu.

I searched the repositories with apt-file search gnome-volume-control and found out that it is in the gnome-media-common package. I installed the gnome-media package, and now my sound controls appear to be working correctly.
