Thread: openSUSE 11.0 GNOME Volume Applet Hardwired to PulseAudio?

  1. #1

    Default openSUSE 11.0 GNOME Volume Applet Hardwired to PulseAudio?

    I'm not terribly fond of PulseAudio, primarily because its volume control (mixer) is extremely limited. I suspect I'm not alone.

    So I removed all the PulseAudio bits from my openSUSE 11.0 installation and reverted to esound, and that works fine. However, there's a problem with GNOME's volume applet that you can install to the taskbar in the lower right (default) of the screen. When you double click on that applet (or equivalent menu selection), it tries to launch the PulseAudio version of the volume control application. But that obviously doesn't work, and it should be trying to launch the classic volume control application.

    Anyone else seeing this problem? Anyone know if this bug has been reported already? Thanks in advance.

    As a workaround, I fixed this problem using these two commands:

    cd /usr/bin
    sudo ln -s /usr/bin/gnome-volume-control pavucontrol

    And that did the trick.
