Where are xfce4-volumed logs?

Asked by anatoly techtonik on 2017-04-17

Where should I check to see if xfce4-volumed reported any errors? My volume up button doesn't work and I want to see if there is something that bothers daemon.

If you run:

xev

Then press the misbehaving button, does it make events?

Yes.

OK so it's sending events, does it also change the volume?

anatoly techtonik (techtonik) said : #6

For completeness this is the xev output for volume down media key, which changes volume ok.

If you go into keyboard settings and find the volume modifiers, can you set the key to the button press?

Setting manager doesn't start anymore, but it did few hours ago. Trying to find the name of the binary in menu entry.

$ xfce4-settings-manager

** (xfce4-settings-manager:16343): WARNING **: Couldn't connect to accessibility bus: Failed to connect to socket /tmp/dbus-i9Niv6x4SG: Connection refused

What's going on?

anatoly techtonik (techtonik) said : #10

There is no volume shortcuts assigned in Keyboard section of xfce4-settings-manager. Only applications shortcuts there.

anatoly techtonik (techtonik) said : #11

After reboot up volume key started to work, but now it is again malfunctioning. So the question is still the same - where can I see if xfce4-volumed reported any problems?

anatoly techtonik (techtonik) said : #12

It works now. I don't know what happened.
