I use Rhythmbox to play songs, but when I clicked the top-right close X, it disappeared, but the song is still playing.

Where can I find it?

PS. I use Lubuntu


Welcome to Ask Ubuntu.

When you clicked the X in the top-right corner, you just closed the program window, not quit the program. This allows you to play music while not having the window open, a quite useful feature actually.

Just start Rythmbox again and it will pop right back up where you left it!

    Rhythmbox is actually located at the sound menu, in the top right corner of the screen, where you change the volume. You can access Rhythmbox from there, too. – Jorge Suárez de Lis Aug 31 '13 at 16:47

    @Jorge Suárez de Lis : Yes, but only using Unity. He stated that he was using Lubuntu, so he is probably using LXDE, which doesn't do that, it has a separate item down in the lower right-hand corner on the status bar. – RPiAwesomeness Aug 31 '13 at 16:49
  • Oh, you're right, sorry about that! – Jorge Suárez de Lis Sep 1 '13 at 0:05

You can make it like this,
First exit/close Rhythmbox, then download rhythmbox-tray-icon.zip
and extract its contents into ~/.local/share/rhythmbox/plugins.

Start Rhythmbox. Go to Edit > Plugins.
Find 'Tray Icon' in the plugins list and enable it.
A Rhythmbox icon appears in the notification area.

I tested on my Linux LXLE working nicely...:D
