Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-media

I found two similar nonfatal visual bugs in Volume Control application, both in the tab "Sound Theme".

Bug #1
----------
How to reproduce:
1. In Sound Theme combo-box, select Ubuntu (instead of No Sounds)
2. Select a non-default alert sound in the list-box (e.g., Bark). Sound Theme combo-box now says Custom.
3. Select the Default alert sound in the list-box. Sound Theme combo-box is now blank.
4. Try to select another alert sound in the list-box.

Result: cannot select another alert sound until the combo-box is reset. The highlight bar moves to the new selection, but the radio-button stays on Default.

Bug #2
----------
How to reproduce:
1. In Sound Theme combo-box, select Ubuntu (instead of No Sounds)
2. Select a non-default alert sound in the list-box (e.g., Bark). Sound Theme combo-box now says Custom.
3. In Sound Theme combo-box, select No Sounds.

Result: the entire list-box control is disabled and grayed-out, the radio-button reverts to the Default sound, but the line of the previously selected alert sound which stays black.

I just updated to Jaunty beta, relevant package version is 2.26.0-0ubuntu3.

Thanks,
R.

Yes, I just rechecked.
I have the latest package version installed (still 2.26.0-0ubuntu3).

If it matters, this is a system upgraded from intrepid, not a new install.

BTW, why was the package changed from gnome-media to gnome-control-center?
the relevant binary is /usr/bin/gnome-volume-control, owned by gnome-media package...

the bug has been reassigned because the normal application to change sound events is gnome-sound-properties which is in gnome-control-center, your bug description is not clear

affects: gnome-control-center (Ubuntu) → gnome-media (Ubuntu)

reopening the bug, the tab there might be better hidden since there is another dialog working better to do those change

I click the volume control gnome applet and select the "Volume Control..." button. This runs gnome-volume-control and not gnome-sound-properties.
System -> Preferences -> Sound indeed runs gnome-sound-properties, and there Sound Theme stuff work.

With gnome-media 2.27.91-0ubuntu1 (part of karmic alpha 6) the first bug is fixed.
The second bug is still there.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. A new version of GNOME Media is available in both Lucid and Maverick and we are wondering if this is still reproducible in any of those versions, May you please test and give us of feedback about it? Thanks in advance.

I don't have Maverick installed, but both bugs persist on Lucid with gnome-media 2.30.0-0ubuntu1.
Thanks.
