• Mate volume control


    I am using mate DE but I have a problem with the default mate volume applet.
    Currently I am using volumeicon.

  • Perhaps @MichaelTunnell will know something about this 😬

  • I am not sure why this would happen. @lots-0-logs I actually don’t use MATE as my main DE, I just test it out every now and then. I actually like to test all of the builds in Antergos to find any bugs that need to be found.

    @I-sty have you tried replacing the applet with a different volume applet?
    How long has this been happening? Did it start after making an update to your system?

  • If it started after upgrade, it might have something to do with Pulseaudio split.

    If that changes nothing, I would probably try installing the mate and mate-extra groups again in case something is missing.

    sudo pacman -S mate mate-extra --needed
    

    (--needed = don’t reinstall already installed packages.)

  • Someone at IRC is having the same issue with XFCE and I think that the missing package might be pulseaudio-gconf, could you try installing that?

    sudo pacman -S pulseaudio-gconf
    

    This is just a guess and someone else would probably know better.

    This doesn’t work or didn’t work to the XFCE user.

  • Thank you your replies.

  • @I-sty In this case the issue looks like you don’t own your home directory unless pulseaudio has it’s one homedirectory.

    Does sudo chown -R yourusername /home/yourusername change anything?

    Ref: In minimal installation, /home/USERNAME/.config is owned by root #301

  • @Mikaela I tried the chown command but the owner of my home directory is root. It is not changed 😞

  • @I-sty If chown changes nothing, I have no idea what would help.

  • Try:
    sudo su
    chown -R username:users /home/username
