Description of problem:
Banshee does have a slider for the volume. However, If I install banshee under
XFCE without Gnome, the icon is not available which will cause this slider do be
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Latest development version from rawhide:
Install banshee in a non-gnome environment
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install banshee
2. Start banshee
3. Search for volume slider
Volume icon not visible
Volume icon visible
I'm not sure if this is a bug since this media player is not intended for a
non-gnome environment. I think this is the case because of the
'OnlyShowIn=GNOME;' that is in it's desktop file. I think this is not good,
because if you install dbus-x11 with banshee under XFCE and have the volume icon
back then it works perfect :)

Screenshot, notice the invisibility of the volume slider (it's there, but just not visible)
So are you saying this bug goes away if dbus-x11 is installed?
Well, if you install banshee under XFCE you get the following problems:
- Volume button is not visible (this was wrong, it was my theme that did it.
Using the default Fedora theme does give a visible Volume button so that is not
a problem) (So that was my fault)
- Banshee starts complaining about not able to launch dbus-launch (or something
like that). This is fixed by doing: yum -y install dbus-x11 . So I think that
dbus-x11 should be a dependency of the banshee package :)
So are you trying to combine two separate issues into one bug report? Is
everything (including the volume button icon) fixed by installing that package?
Or are there two different issues (please use two different bugs next time if so).
Yes, these are two different issues. I thought they were related. But adding
dbus-x11 fixes the error about dbus-launch. The volume button is not visible due
to the icon theme I used (which was not distributed with Fedora). So that wrong.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
We now have Banshee 0.99.1 in updates, 0.99.2 in updates-testing and 0.99.3
getting ready to take over, can you please check if this bug still exists?
Do you want me to check this with a Fedora 9 pre-release medium? I'm currently
not using Fedora anymore, however I'm willing to check it through qemu if that
suits your needs =)

No, it's fine, I seem to recall the volume button appearing when I had 0.98.3 in
a similar situation, so I'll just close it.
Thanks for your original bug report though.
