In older versions I used to comment out osd.show(percent) in the functions increaseVolume and decreaseVolume in the file /usr/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.volume/contents/ui/main.qml (blog source). But that file does not exist anymore in Plasma 5.13. Is there an other way to disable it?

    Not sure if useful, but I modify the OSD to make it smaller and persist for less time. I patch the files in /usr/share/plasma/look-and-feel/org.kde.breeze.desktop/contents/osd. – Sparhawk Dec 18 '18 at 23:17

  • @MatMis I added a screenshot for when right-click the icon. What version of plasma are you on now? I'm using 5.15.4. I also wonder if your volume icon is not actually kmix, but something else. – Sparhawk Apr 22 at 10:13
  • @Sparkhawk I'm also using KDE 5.15.4 (on Antergos). – MatMis Apr 22 at 12:33
