Volume window won't close

My Netbook (Samsung NC10, 1gb ram) is running Peppermint 4. The volume window won’t close. If I open it to mute or enable volume it just sticks on the screen getting in the way with scrolling etc. Any help would be appreciated.

Odd, mine used to (occasionally) do that in Peppermint 3 … but not in PM4 :o

Have you installed PulseAudio ?

No I have not instslled pulse audio.

It only occasionally happens.

Try restarting the whole bottom panel:

lxpanelctl restart

and/or installing pulseaudio:

sudo apt-get install pulseaudio pulseaudio-utils pavucontrol

then logging off/on or rebooting.

Took the second option as I had already switched off. No way of knowing if it will work as it only occasionally happens. Hopefully I won’t have the problem again. :slight_smile:

It’s back again.

Did this (lxpanelctl restart) as you suggested and it worked.

If you are still having problems then try Volti. I have been using it on LXDE desktops for a while.

sudo apt-get install volti

Then add it to autostart:

sudo nano /etc/xdg/lxsession/Peppermint/autostart

Nice one SeZo … I’d not heard of volti before :slight_smile:

I’m gonna expand on your instructions if you don’t mind (and use gedit as the text editor rather than nano)

Install volti with:

sudo apt-get install volti

Add it to autostart with:

sudo gedit /etc/xdg/lxsession/Peppermint/autostart

and add a single NEW LINE at the bottom that reads:-


(enlarged only for clarity)

SAVE the file, now log off and on again.

If you’re happy with the volti volume control … you can remove the original (so you don’t have 2

To remove the original “Volume Control” panel applet -

Right click an empty space on the bottom panel

Select “Add / Remove Panel items”

Highlight the “Volume Control” item

Click “Remove”

Click “Close”

Cheers Guys I will have a go in the morning.

Do not mind it at all. You are much better at writing tutorials than I am anyway :wink:

Dunno about that, but thanks for the compliment anyway :slight_smile:

Thanks SeZo

Thanks Mark, it works a treat. :slight_smile:
