In a Debian sid Xfce set-up I'm trying to get the volume control in the taskbar to show the media player controls like it does in some more preconfigured distros. How do I do that? Searches in synaptic and Google have so far turned up nothing.

xfce4-xmms-plugin or xfce4-xfapplet-plugin might be what you are looking for. I would expect these to be packaged for Debian, the sources live at XFCE Goodies.

  • Thanks for answering this. However, I reinstalled another system in the end (non-Xfce) and have not been able to check this and won't therefore mark it as correct. I do appreciate your answer though. Commented Jan 10, 2013 at 12:56
  • No problem, maybe you'll return to XFCE one day again. :)
