Gnome Sound Preferences in LXDE


I would like to use LXDE as my primary Desktop environment, but I want to use the gnome control for sound. Is there a way to install this "sound preferences" thing in LXDE?

I have attached a screen shot of the sound preferences of GNOME control panel so that every one will know what I am looking for.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks,
Balaji.

I believe that is the pulse audio panel


Quote:

apt-get install pulseaudio.

I don't think it is pulse audio, it is something like gnome-volume-control-applet (when you type this in a terminal window, the applet pops up). I would like to have this permanently in the system tray area of my LXDE session.

Thanks,
Balaji.

That definitely looks like the gnome volume control app within the gnome-control-center. I don't believe there's a way to use it with LXDE without installing a good chunk of gnome. I use gmixer with LXDE. It's got a simple volume control that goes in the panel notification area (I autoload gmixer-trayicon.desktop), and I keep the full gmixer launcher in a second panel.

you

Can you provide any installation instructions for gmixer?

I am using Ubuntu 11.10 and I didn't manage to install the program in my laptop.

I'm using Fedora, so I downloaded the gmixer rpm from the Fedora 15 repository, then, as root: rpm -ivh gmixer-1.3-20.fc15.x86_64.rpm. For Ubuntu 11.10, if gmixer is in the repository, then (as root): apt-get install gmixer.
