Volumeicon issue <SOLVED>
« on: October 09, 2013, 04:47:04 AM »
So I installed volumeicon on my new install just like I always have but this time when I use my volume up and down keys I get this



rather than the normal volume bar. My guess is I need to install something but I have no clue what that might be. Ive tried different icon themes but that didnt seem to make a difference.

I just tried this and got a normal volume icon in the status bar and it behaves as I would expect.  Not sure if that info helps but it might indicate something special about your local set up (mine is pretty much ootb).

@statmonkey, @lwfitz - when did you last install?

lwfitz - it looks like your on screen messages are being controlled by dunst (http://www.knopwob.org/dunst/) it's pulled in as a dependency by i3 - which is now part of the new builds, correct? - you also getting those bland messages for notifications from your email (assuming your using something like thunderbird, not mutt)?

You may just need to reconfigure the notify daemon to use.

My install is about a month or so old and I am using flux (if you are more recent and using i3 that would make our environments different  ::) Gee, guess I was not really thinking through when I posted, I really need to install the latest on this box but just so busy haven't gotten to it.  I hadn't looked at dunst (or i3 for that matter), so more to learn.

No problem.

Actually, dunst will work with any window manager, it just gets installed as a dependency when i3 is installed via apt. I get notifications like lwfitz is seeing on debian testing after installing i3. I'm just trying to narrow it down to something simple like lwfitz has dunst installed and you do not.

@ packrat

Yep, you hit it right on the nose.

I ran

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove dunst
and

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install notify-osd
then rebooted and I was good. Thanks for the help

Good deal.

And just an FYI - if anyone wants to stay with dunst for notifications, it can be configured so you're not stuck with that white on blue theme - the default configuration file is $HOME/.config/dunst/dunstrc

There is an example in /usr/share/doc/dunst
