fluxbox taskbar applet for managing sound in ubuntu 8.10


hi folks!

in fluxbox startup file, to start the networkmanager you would create a line like "nm-applet &". this create a icon in the taskbar in which you can access the network manager via right and left click of the mouse.

i need sound access the same way, using gnome-volume-control.
how would you start the gnome-volume-manager as a taskbar applet?

I think all the applets are usually located in /usr/libexec (you could run "which nm-applet" to see where it is). I think the one you want is mixer_applet2, although I've heard there are problems with some icon themes where the applet is only about 2 pixels wide.

Try running "locate mixer_applet2" from a terminal, maybe it's located somewhere else on your system. Sometimes gnome lives in /opt/gnome so some binaries might be under there.

Is there a "gnome-applets" package available?

ok, so that produced some results. i have a gnome-applets folder in which mixer_applet2 resides, specifically /usr/share/omf
i see that omf is open media files, and within this paticular directory are xml and image files.

so, is this a java applet that i need to access in a different fashion than a normal binary? or is it something that i need to compile from source?

also the gnome-applets package has been installed.

thanks again for the assistance.

edit: also there is a mixer_applet2 in /usr/lib/gnome-applets but i am guessing thats a library for the program.

I would guess that /usr/lib/gnome-applets/mixer_applet2 is the executable binary you're looking for - on my system it's in /usr/libexec so this somewhat matches up. You could always try running it to see, I can't see the harm.

I wonder if /usr/bin/nm-applet is a symlink to /usr/lib/gnome-applets/nm-applet.
