Somewhere along the line my gnome-volume-control stopped working.
It *was* working in FC3 and I seldom mess with it unless I'm doing something
which requires the mixer -- like recording from an LP!
Which means I have no idea what/when it got broken. (Perhaps an
update? I've about given up using SElinux; seems like every update to
selinux-policy-targeted kills something and I have to turn it off!)
Sorry, got off on a tangent, there.
Using the speaker icon on my task bar is futile:
Attempting move the slider -- it just reverts to BOTTOM.
Attempting to R-Click->Open Volume Control gets an error box
Sorry, no mixer elements and/or devices found.
When that happened here I found that (from your home directory) if you:
1. rm .gnome2/gnome-volume-control
2. click on the volume control and it works again.
I have no indication WHY this changes things as IIRC the file that is
(re)generated appears to be identical to the one erased in bot permissions and
What I look forward to is continued immaturity followed by death.
