Do you simply want your applications to start muted or do you wish to prevent access to your sound hardware?

Your DE is probably unable to read the GTK Icon set for some reason and hence is falling back to the default X icon.

comment Detect if HDMI Monitor is switched off
The output I get is a tad different. I however modified the script to work with it. Thanks a lot! I do have another issue though, using ddccontrol will require polling it every x seconds to get the status. I was hoping that wouldn't be required.

comment Why do Unix-heads say “minus”?
I tend to pronounce it as hyphen. When explaining, I go, Arr Emm Hyphen Arr Eff. I think it majorly depends on the region you're from.

comment How do I correct a directory incorrectly copied into itself?
@ChrisDown: That's true. But usually, if you are aware of the existing files on a machine you administer, directly parsing shouldn't be an issue. I have been parsing the output of ls on my system for a long time now, without any problems. But then I know for a fact that none of my files contain any harmful characters. In case of a new or unknown system, yes, NEVER parse the output of ls.
