The volume control icon in Fedora.


Any Linux expert here? I am NO Linux expert. More like a novice.

I have just installed Fedora Linux onto my hard disk. When it was ready, there was originally a volume control on the top panel on the screen,

I don't want it to be there and so I tried my best to shift it to the bottom panel. I failed and unfortunately, I deleted it. I actually select delete and deleted it.

So I now have no volume control on screen. I also cannot run applicants that produce sound such as Youtube.

How do I put back the volume icon onto the screen?

Thanks.

Right-click on an empty space on the panel, choose "Add to panel" and select "Volume Control" from the list of available applets.

You need to call a mixer

#kmixer

(if you have KDE installed)

install a few more with yum or packagekit.

How do I install it?

Thanks for your reply.

However, can you care to explain it in simple terms? I am really a newbie in all these.

What do you mean to call a mixer?

I also don't think I have any KDE. I think I have only GNOME.

How do I install with yum or packagekit?

Sorry, but I am really new to this. Thanks.

I don't have a gnome desktop at hand now, but you can try to run the command
Code:
gnome-volume-control
from a terminal.
