Bug Description

Binary package hint: indicator-applet

If we change the volume using mouse scroll wheel or using trackpad over volume control, there is no indication of volume change. The indication works when using the multimedia keyboard Volume Up/Down keys though.

Nifty! Do i understand you correctly that you want to be able to mouse
over the volume indicator, scroll-wheel up or down, and have the
syncronous notification display the volume?

I think that's sweet! +1.

That's something to patch in the volume-indicator-applet then.

I would also like to see this functionality. Currently you can watch the yellow tooltip but that's small and not user-friendly (it displays e.g. "Main: 75%" which isn't necessarily useful). Using notify-osd would be a brilliant addition.

Years ago (in Dapper or so) the yellow popup immediately appeared as soon as the volume changed by scrolling the mouse wheel. That was good enough for me. Now when moving the mouse over the icon I have to wait for the popup because it won't appear as long as the mouse wheel scrolls - this is annoying.

So I vote for changing this bug from Wishlist to a Low prio bug, add it as a papercut for Lucid and re-implement the behavior of Dapper.
