Comment 11 for bug 448710

Hi Ahmedh,

My previous patch made too many unnecessary changes, use this instead. It changes the behavior of status-icon-mode 2, and is just a one-line fix.

You should be able to drop it into the debian/patches directory and build normally, i.e:

$ sudo apt-get build-dep rhythmbox
$ apt-get source rhythmbox
$ cp 99_fix_status_icon_mode_2.patch rhythmbox-0.12.5/debian/patches/
$ cd rhythmbox-0.12.5
$ dpkg-buildpackage

After you install the deb, change your status icon preferences to 'Always Visible'.
