Did you try to restart your session ?

xfce4-volumed should have been added automaticaly to your autostarted applications.

Hmm, I can't get the keybindings to work.

Hi, I'm the author of xfce4-volumed. gstreamer-0.10 is probably still needed because as far as I know 1.0+ do not contain the mixer interface. This is the interface used by xfce4-volumed to watch and adjust the volume. Thanks.

For all of you having trouble with hardware keyboard mute button not unmuting properly (i.e. unmuting only master, but not speaker device):

This may be related to xfce4-volumed / xfce4-mixer not working properly with PulseAudio.

In order to make xfce4-volumed work on my Thinkpad X200, I had to

1.) Install gstreamer0.10-good-plugins
2.) Set the actual sounddevice of xfce4-mixer via xfce4-settings-editor to the correct PulseAudio device.

PulseAudio can only be controlled by xfce4-mixer if gstreamer0.10-good-plugins are installed. Otherwise, xfce4-mixer will show ALSA devices only and thus xfce4-volumed will affect alsa device directly.

It took me quite a while to find this out...

@Ennoia Alas, there has been no release of xfce4-volumed since 2011... The configure explictly requires gstreamer0.10, even if it may works with the final version with some patching... A bit again the "vanilla software, unless broken otherwise" Arch policy.

@santodelaespada, I have the same version of libkeybinder here (python2-keybinder2 is not required) and no problems. What does the following command say on your system?

pkg-config --exists --print-errors "keybinder"

Thank you for this package. Hope it is included in extra soon!

If unmuting by keyboard doesn't work:
For me worked
amixer set Master toggle
(then binded to the XF86mute key.)

I get:
checking for LIBKEYBINDER... no
configure: error: Package requirements (keybinder) were not met:

I got installed:
libkeybinder2 0.3.0-1
python2-keybinder2 0.3.0-1

Should dependencies be updated to gstreamer and gst-plugins-base, i.e. 1.0.6 version ?
