Thanks, but after downloading the deb file and running it, it says dependency is not satisfiable: btnx-config (>=0.4.9) – tstan85 May 2 '12 at 11:22
maybe i should use source or sth like that to install, but i dont really know how to do this. perhaps it is time for me to learn doing so. – tstan85 May 2 '12 at 11:23
i am sorry, i just saw the gui link, will try doing it now – tstan85 May 2 '12 at 11:24
thanks a lot, it works as i had before! – tstan85 May 2 '12 at 11:29
Awesome! Be sure to mark my answer as the solution, so that people know this issue is solved. Glad I could help. – funkeh May 2 '12 at 11:32

Did not work for me. Better follow these instructions: how to set volume control using mouse shortcut in ubuntu 12.04

if needed: sudo apt-get install indicator-applet-complete then: Ctrl-Windows-right_click on top panel -> Add to Panel... -> Indicator Applet Complete
