Simple XFCE volume slider?


Does XFCE have a volume slider for its panel? I want something similar to what GNOME and LXDE have; a small/simple slider that appears quickly when clicking the volume icon in the panel. XFCE pulls up the full mixer.

you can hold your mouse over the icon and use the scroll button to adjust volume

OK thanks. My desktop doesn't have a scroll on the mouse. I would also like a mute button on the slider.

It looked promising but it doesn't work very well. I click halfway and it looks OK (at about 50%) but then it jumps up to about 75%. I click at about 25% and it jumps up to about 50%. The jump is about a second after the click. A little annoying, but almost there!

what happens if you actually slide it (hold down the button with one hand and move the finger across the pad with the other hand) instead of clicking?

Same thing; it's when I release it that it jumps a moment later. I'm using the git version in Arch's AUR. Maybe a stable release might be better. I'll try that soon.

Thanks.

It happens to me sometimes on an old laptop, but it never really bothered me.
I just figured it was because the pad was so sensitive.
