Is it possible to add a volume control in XFCE 4.2 panel like here?

just right-click on your panel, select the "Add new item" option, and then select "Volume Control"...

=)

I installed it from the graphical installer and in the begin of the installation it asked me somethig about ALSA, but I didn't marked it because I use OSS. Now I don't have Volume control, Perhaps I had to recompile.
I wasn't shure that it's the reason, but now I understand that I had to mark this option.
Thanks.

You won't need to reinstall XFCE (at least I don't think so). You should still be able to get a volume control running under OSS. I usually have kmix (the KDE mixer) running in my system tray. Just run 'kmix &' from a command line. On my system it doesn't always run right the first time I try, so I usually have to do it twice! When you close the kmix window you should still see it running in the background in the system tray.

On a side note: The XFCE installer is bloody fantastic. A glimpse of the future?

Of course what win32sux said is good as well. I just don't like the XFCE volume control much. Either way it isn't too difficult.

I reinstalled it, but I didn't include this ALSA support, because there is a warning that if I don't use ALSA I shouldn't include this option. So I don't have volume control again.
The mixer is working nice.
My system is a bit strange. It's Vector Linux 4.0 with some packages from Slack 9.0, 9.1 and current. It's possible something to be broken.
I don't have KDE, I'm a GNOME user, but I can't add gnome-volume-control in the panel.
Never mind, I like new XFCE

Everything is fine now.
I had to install two more things, I don't know why.
libxfce4mcs-client.so.1
libxfcegui4.so.1
which were available only in RPM
Now my XFCE is a true aeroplane
