Recently I upgraded the Mythbuntu 10.10 to 12.04 which uses Xfce, and realised there is no one click volume adjusting sound applet with a slider, like in 10.10.
Is there something else to do this? Or is Xfce becoming even more minimalist?

I believe the standard xfce sound control app on the task bar now works by way of the mouse wheel (or on my laptop the scrolling bit at the side of the finger mouse pad thing or whatever it's called), while the mouse pointer is over it? also I think I read that you can add a slider that appears when you click on it somehow. Sorry I don't have the details.
In addition to Tom's answer, if you add:
bash -c "XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=GNOME /usr/bin/gnome-sound-applet"
to your startup list rather than just gnome-sound-applet, then you'll be able to right-click the icon and select 'Sound Preferences' to get at the more detailed controls, such as per-application volume controls. Otherwise it just takes you to the gnome control panel when you try to get at the sound preferences.
