Bug Description

Binary package hint: xfce4-mixer

Hello,

With Xubuntu 6.10 and the latest updates, I cannot add the Volume Control plugin to my
panel.

I right click the panel, click add new item, and add the Volume Control plugin.

A little black line appears on the panel, then disappears. No plugin.

When I run xfce4-panel through the terminal and then try to add the plugin,
this is what I get:

kim@komputer:~$ xfce4-panel
The program 'xfce4-mixer-plugin' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadAccess (attempt to access private resource denied)'.

  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;

   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful

Do you, by any chance, have a file set to load xscreensaver in Settings>Autostarted Applications? I had one that looked like this:

#!/bin/sh

sleep 1 && conky &
xscreensaver &
xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap &
xbindkeys &
adesklets --xfce4 &
mpc update | mpc ls | mpc add | mpc shuffle

I removed the line "xscreensaver &", and it worked perfectly. Hope this helps!

picpak (k-belding) wrote :

After some more checking, it turns out it's not xscreensaver. I had simply assumed it because it had loaded after closing it. The problem, strangely enough, lies in xbindkeys.

Just configure your keys through Xfce's keyboard settings, and remove xbindkeys from your list of startup programs. It's been working for me ever since.

Hello,

I have this bug too, on a Xubuntu 7.04. I don't have xbindkeys installed, so this is not the real cause of the problem, at least for me.

Dragging the mixer applet to the panel works, but I have to do it every time I start an X session, which is kind of bothering.

Here's a (pruned) list of what's running on my computer. Do you spot anything that might cause xfce4-mixer to crash, just like xbindkeys did for the previous reporter?

Thank you for reporting this bug and help make Ubuntu better. I confirm and reproduce this bug. There seems to be different workarounds for different users. Here's my workaround to get my Volume Control on the panel: I re-launch xfce4-panel, then add it as usual. However, the volume control's missing after reboot and I have to repeat the procedure. I'm not really sure what other information you need, but please advise.
I'm changing Importance to Low since there's an existing workaround.

Trying to add the plugin back onto my xfce panel doesn't work either, and neither does dragging the plugin onto the panel. Also, after the mixer crashed, the volume control multimedia buttons on my laptop stopped working.

I'm seeing this on Gutsy final. It seems to be dependent on the theme - (Applications -> settings -> user interface -> theme tab.) For example, "Human" causes the crash (BadAlloc, rather than the BadAccess mentioned in one report above), "MurrinaStormCloud" is OK.

Confirming this as well. Am on Xubuntu Gutsy Upgrade with compiz-fusion. Every Xubuntu Distro I have used before since Dapper have had this problem at some point. I was hoping this recurring problem would be solved already in Gutsy but its still here. :P

Killing/restarting xfce4-panel and adding the control worked a few times but now it refuses to be added again. Dragging the control to the panel seems to work as of the moment.

Sounds like there might be multiple bugs here, some of the attached duplicates don't sound the same either.

picpak (k-belding) wrote :

I added the plugin after my Gutsy upgrade and it's been there ever since. Great! :)

I also have the mixer plugin disappear.

The drag-n-drop workaround seems to work fine.

There is also a bug entry at
http://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2971
for this bug.

I'm closing the tasks other than xfce4-mixer becauses they seem to be irrelevant.

I can confirm this bug.

The drag-n-drop workaround works depending on your theme. That means, if you have "MurrinaStormCloud" as your current theme it works, but if you use "Human" instead it doesn't. So you need to set your theme to "MurrinaStormCloud" and drag the mixer-plugin to the panel instead of clicking on "Add".
See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=375118

In my case the offending panel items work fine unless I use a horizontally orientated panel (top or bottom of screen) with one of the following three themes.

Human
Outdoors
Silicone
These three themes are the only ones that use the ubuntulooks engine which appears to come from package gtk2-engines-ubuntulooks.

If the panel is vertically oriented (left or right of screen) then the panel items work with all themes.

If the panel is started under a different theme then switched to one of the three above themes the panel items will continue to work.

I get the same error message as the OP, but it's with xfce4-xkb-plugin. Volume Control Works perfectly.

Confirmed here (7.10), using Human Theme triggers the bug. Switching to another theme, adding the mixer panel and then switching back to Human has worked for me

I use the volume control applet provided by xfce4-xfapplet-plugin now that the plugin in xfce4-mixer does not work (in Gutsy). You can install even many of these, e.g. one for capture. (Mute did not work for capture like unchecking activate in qamix, though.) Changing themes might have something to do with the failure in adding xfce4-mixer's volume control to panel.

I may have found a work around. I am running Xubuntu 7.1 and using the Mplayer plugin in Mozilla. As you described there is no volume control, no link , ikon , or information link. While clicking around in the applications menu I started XMMS and discovered that although there is no input showing in the display the volume control built into its GUI actually works. I guess this means that XMMS has set itself as the default player but that Mozilla doesn't look there before starting the Mplayer plugin. I hope this helps.

Just an addition to that , since then I have discovered that xgine is the default.

So, On 7.10 xfce4-mixer does not work on panel. (only if i start it manually, apart from panel)

Thankyou, I'll have to go back to the site and read it again because at this stage I cant start it manually or any other way, although I can work around that using the volume control in XMMS.

same issue here. Just installed xubuntu-desktop and am unable to add mixer applet. Black line appears then disappears. I tried changing themes with no effect.

I found out that I can't add a volume plugin to the panel in Hardy unless I first remove the keybindings for the media keys in the keyboard settings. Removing them fixes it (the plugin handles them, so there is no loss of functionality).

Workaround given in https://bugs.launchpad.net/xfce4-mixer/+bug/90261/comments/35 worked for me. I set up a custom key mapping, same as default key mapping but minus the media keys, and it just started working.

Still an issue on Intrepid. Doesn't work even with a different theme - tried 8 themes.

10.04 doesn't ship Xfce 4.8. If you've compiled it yourself, or installed from a third-party repository, make sure you've upgraded panel plugins as well, otherwise they won't work.
