Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-applets

In my Lucid alpha 3 installation, gnome-volume-control-applet does not run when I log in. It runs fine from the command line, though.

I'm using my home directory from Karmic. Has the way to specify that gnome-volume-control-applet should run changed in Lucid, eg does it need to be added to the start up programs?

It may be relevant that instead of the volume control applet I now get a keyboard indicator applet that I can't get rid of in the notification area. (I didn't notice it at first because it writes the keyboard layout in black text over black background.)

OK, it seems that the volume and bluetooth indicators in Lucid now appear in the indicator applet, not in the notification area applet. This is a pain because (a) the network etc indicators appear in the notification area, so now you need both the notification area and the indicator applet, and (b) I don't want the indicator applet to appear in any case. It has an indicator for Evolution mail that I don't want and can't figure out how to get rid of.

Is there a way to configure what appears in the notification area and indicator applets so I can select the notifications I want?

that's a transitional state everything is going to be migrated to the indicator system over time, not this cycle though

you will not get notification for things not running, if you are concerned about the launchers the list is in /usr/share/indicators/messages/applications and you can also tweak in your user dir but I'm not sure about the directory now
