I using Google Translator now, but If you doesn't understand - I will try to use my english fork
The idea is to separate design from xfce4-mixer xfce4-mixer-plugin.
If someone has been using PulseAudio and Xfce4 - must have Xfce4-mixer, although Pavucontrol better in the check (even a volume management programs, etc.) and xfce4-mixer is ideal for ALSA (so I believe).
So my suggestion is to separate xfce4-mixer-plugin xfce4-mixer on and configure it so that:
- If you use ALSA, run the xfce4-mixer
- If you use PulseAudio, you run the Pavucontrol
What do you think about that?
pa-mixer + xfce4-volumed-pulse + pavucontrol
Is what I use for Pulseaudio
xfce4-mixer + xfce4-volumed
Is what I use for Alsa
I preffer use a unified plugin for Alsa+applet or pulse+applet rathen what I use now
XFCE :: Arch Linux
:: AMD E-300 APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics @ 1300 MHz
:: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Wrestler [Radeon HD 6310]
:: LED with aspect ration of 16:9 in 14.0'' (1366x768) [Radeon driver]
I mean - Xfce4 Mixer (and xfce4-Volumed and other things) work (PulseAudio) without problems. Although (perhaps in Debian only) xfce4-mixer xfce4-mixerplugin supplies and if you want to run a fast mixer (as a program), click on the plugin "Run the sound mixer" and get xfce4-mixer.
I found a solution - change in xfconf a line (xfce4-panel) with xfce4-mixer for pavucontrol. However, we still have installed xfce4-mixer ...
