I can't find the xfce4-mixer in the GUI, where is it?

Asked by jumpin_Point

I have installed Ubuntu with Xfce4.
I can't find the xfce4-mixer in the GUI. It's possible to start it in the console.

In "Applications -> Settings -> All Settings ... -> Sound", i can just choice the things, that will be shown in the xfce4-mixer.

Can you tell me, where i can find it?

PS: i speak german, but i think, there are more ubuntu-users who speak english, so i report the question in english

Right click on the task bar at the bottom of the screen.
Press “Add New Item”
scroll down until you find the Volume Control applet and drag it to the panel next to the applications button. (Drag anything else you want down at this time too.)
Then right-click on the new Volume Control icon and go the “Properties”.
For “Device”, choose your device
For “Wannabe Master”, choose your main sound output.
Leave the “xfc4-mixer” in the “when clicked” box alone. – (that's what we're running! LOL )
If you click on the icon, it brings up the mixer where you can adjust front speaker and mic volume.
If you click the volume meter to the right of the panel icon it will adjust the volume up and down.

Alternatively you can load ALSA-Mixer (gtk not Gnome) and set the Volume control to run gamix
