This is mainly a curiosity.
At the moment, I have Amarok playing some music for me (Beethoven). The Amarok window is not visible, but the tray icon is there.
If I move the mouse pointer over the tray icon for Amarok, it tells me (among other things): “Volume: Muted”
I have no idea why it does that. The volume is fine. I am enjoying the musing. It certainly is not muted. If I open the main Amarok window, and hold the mouse pointer over the speaker icon there, it tells me “Volume: 88%” which is fine.
At one time, the tray icon also used to tell me “Volume: 88%” (or whatever was the loudness at that time). But now the tray icon seems to think that the volume is muted.
And, sure, I could probably delete all of the Amarok settings files, and start with a fresh configuration. But then I would have to go through the trouble of reconfiguring. I’ll do that when I move to Leap 15.0, but it does not seem worth doing right now with 42.3.
So, yes, I can continue to live with the situation. But if anyone knows a simple fix, that would be appreciated.
