double speaker icon on arch


Peace, first i installed pulseaudio and that was something required by skype, but when i bootup my headphones get muted, so i fixed this by installing alsa but the problem is now i have double speaker icon, one muted and one not, i tried to uninstall pulse audio but it nags about dependencies, any ideas?

check your autostart dirs.
Code:
$ whereis autostart
autostart: /usr/share/autostart
you should have another one hidden in your home .config and everything else related to autostart.
desktop is what?
look in its autostart setup if it has one too. just remove one and see f that fixes it. It will be the icon name .desktop file

This has nothing to do with Arch and everything to do with the DE you are using. Check what BW-userx suggested and provide a bit more info.

this is incorrect, alsa needs to be present for pulseaudio to work, so you already had it installed.
so i wonder what exactly you installed there? maybe alsa-tray? if so, just uninstall it, problem solved.

Code:
sudo  whereis autostart
autostart:
.config contains an autostart folder which in turn only contains the programs i added through gnome settings to autostart.

this is exactly what you're looking for.
disable the second volume icon from there.

well it has a duplicate somewhere, somehow, it is calling to start the icon again, two times . Even if it is the same icon application, it is being called 2 times.

so it is either you have two programs with volume icons being started, or
the same icon is being started twice.

this requires you look for two volume programs, and two places that it can be started. when found, eliminate one of them.

it's your system, not mine.
i suggest you start some systematic troubleshooting about where these icons actually come from.
or, before that, right-click each of them and see if they don't reveal their names to you.
