In Fedora 12 + Gnome 2 I used to be able to modify the volume of each application seperately. Now, I'm on Fedora 20 + MATE 1.6.2, and this option is gone.

If I click Notification Area > Sound > Preferences or System > Control Centre > MATE Volume Control, a window opens that shows Master volume and other stuff like Headphones, Speaker, ACM etc., but I can't control each application's volume settings from here.

Is there any way how to achieve this? I'm in particular interested in dimming Firefox sounds quite, but only sometimes, and sometimes it's other applications, too.

    Maybe in 1.6 that panel wasn't available? At least on Ubuntu MATE (MATE 1.8.1) I can see it: i.imgur.com/1JfdfmP.png – diffycat Sep 21 '14 at 17:11
  • @diffycat Yep, seems right, thanks a lot for pointing out, I didn't notice that 1.8.1's been released. I suppose that questions solved by upgrading to a newer version are considered off-topic, right? – yo' Sep 21 '14 at 19:42
