When I ran the command

gnome-volume-control


It give output

The program 'gnome-volume-control' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing: sudo apt-get install gnome-media

bash: gnome-volume-control: command not found


Then I ran the sudo apt-get install gnome-media
and the problem was solved

thanks

Its really messy to inform thatbut now whenever I bootup my PC volume control shows the error

The panel encountered a problem while loading "OAFIID:GNOME_MixerApplet"
Do you want to delete the applet from your configuration?

have you tried deleting it and re-adding it to the panel (Right click on panel > add topanel... > something like 'volume control')?

Please let me know of any results

But it has the volume control in the list? this is confusing...

hmmm

James

[UPDATE]

I have had a google around and i have found something where it says simply reinstall or install gnome-applets (and its dependency gnome-applets-data)

try that
