[SOLVED] Bring volume control on the xfce4 panel and variety no download

Post by codestruggler » Fri Nov 16, 2018 5:24 pm

Hello,

I am grateful for Erik and team to create this amazing distro. I built an arcolinuxb iso using the arcolinuxb xfce minimal github repo to revive my six year old Samsung laptop.
I did not make any changes to the script and used it as it is. After installing it on my machine I can't see the volume control on my xfce panel. I could go to the applications -> Settings -> Pulse audio Volume Control and change the audio settings according to my liking but its always good to have the volume control in the bottom right in the panel for quick control.

I want variety to circle through the wallpapers which I have and never download anything. Can someone guide me regarding this ?
Thank you so much !!!

Next time just open a new topic for every question - easier for us and easier for future readers

Question 2 - Variety

Use our search on arcolinux.com - https://arcolinux.com/?s=variety

This might be holding your answer - although I did not check.
Go into the preferences of variety. You will find your setting.

Question 1 : audio volume control

Image

Add new item to panel to have an icon for volume if missing.
In the picture you see I did that and now have 2 icons for sound.
