With GNOME 2, I use my the volume control applet to change loudness levels. It doesn't load on GNOME 3 (fallback) applet, so I wonder what other UI can I use for this, preferably a GNOME one.

anything wrong with alsa-mixer? – Behrooz May 2 '11 at 11:25
@Behrooz: haven't tried it, thanks for the suggestion – Tshepang May 2 '11 at 12:20

Add gnome-volume-control-applet to the startup applications.
