Description of problem:
The volume control applet doesn't get crossed-out with a red line when it is
muted like it did in Red Hat Linux 9, for example.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Right click on the volume control applet
2.Click on "mute"
3.Icon didn't change
Actual Results: The icon didn't change
Expected Results: I expect the icon to reflect the "mute" status
Maybe just an icon theme problem?
It still doesn't happen with the newer Rawhide applets package. Does
it fetch an icon from another package?
$ rpm -q gnome-applets
This also happens with Fedora Core 1.

The problem is caused by the fact that in redhat-artwork the "mute"
icons are identical to the "zero" icons (symlink). The "mute" icons
are supposed to be icons to be drawn over a base icon. See
gnome-applets-2.4.1/mixer/mixer.c:562 where the base icon and the
"mute" icon are combined with gdk_pixbuf_composite. When
volume-max.png and volume-mute.png (=volume-zero.png) are combined
when the volume is muted, the visual effect is that the icon does not
change. The solution is to add "mute" icons in redhat-artwork similar
to /usr/share/pixmaps/mixer/volume-mute.png .
ls -l /usr/share/icons/Bluecurve/*/stock/volume-mute.png
Changing component to redhat-artwork.
Changing version to 1.
This is still happening with redhat-artwork-0.9.6-1 from Fedora Core 2
I am experiencing this also, but someone on the fedora-test list
mentioned that their applet is working properly (i.e. red slash across
Forgot to mention FC2T3:
In reply to comment #9 above, it will work correctly (i.e. will change
to a crossed-out icon) while using a different icon theme. It's a
Bluecurve issue as described in comment #7.
Will this be fixed for FC2 final or an update?
Not fixed in FC2.

Hmmm. It seems the recent version of the mixer applet doesn't even use
the Bluecurve themed icons.
I filed https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=134773
about not using the bluecurve icons, and i removed the volume-muted
icon from redhat-artwork cvs. It'll be in the next build of it.
this bug has been fixed in Fedora Core development
