Description Tammy Fox 2002-07-03 15:07:57 EDT
By default, the gnome-volume-control applet is on the panel. If you
start X on a machine with no sound card, you get an error dialog with
the message Couldn't open mixer device /dev/sound/mixer.

In addition to this, when starting Gnome I get this error message as above,
click "Okay", and then promptly get "The volume-control-applet died 
unexpectedly." If I click "Reload", I get the "/dev/sound/mixer not found"
again. If I click "OK" again, the applet successfully returns.

Thia box (allegedly) has on-board sound.

It would be really nice if there were a way of globally disabling
gnome-volume-control applet for LTSP servers.  Any GUI checkbox or text based
global config?
Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2002-08-12 18:56:11 EDT
Disabling in what sense? It's no longer on the default panel, and you could have
made that change yourself in the same way the gnome-panel RPM does.
Or I guess you could just remove it from the gnome-applets package...
Surely LTSP involves modified packages/config already?
Comment 4 Warren Togami 2002-08-12 19:12:54 EDT
Oops, you are right, I apologize.  I just tested this with a new user, and it
does indeed not add it by default to the panel anymore.
