Is there even a "sound menu" anymore in 17.10? When I have a lot of windows open and I get a phone call, I'm in the habit of stopping playback from the top bar somewhere near the sound icon. Is there a way to do that, or something like it on 17.10?
Under Edit -> Preferences -> Extensions, I tried both the "Notification Area Icon" and the "Sound Menu Integration" and don't see that these have any effect whatsoever.
I tried this: I can not control Banshee from the sound menu in Gnome 3 Shell
But when I issue
sudo apt-get update I get:
Err:13 http://ppa.launchpad.net/webupd8team/gnome3/ubuntu artful Release 404 Not Found ... Reading package lists... Done E: The repository 'http://ppa.launchpad.net/webupd8team/gnome3/ubuntu artful Release' does not have a Release file.
I then found the gnome-shell-extensions-mediaplayer project on github, but they only support Gnome shell up through 3.24 and Ubuntu through 16.04, so I opened this issue.
gnome-shell-extension-appindicator is already the newest version (17.10.2). so maybe I just don't know how to use it?
I had already installed the gnome-tweak-tool so I tried (but did not reboot yet):
- Top Bar:
- Application Menu: on, but no change.
- Activities Overview Hot Corner: on, but no change.
- Extensions: I turned "Ubuntu appindicators" on, but no change.
Alternatives? Suggestions? I couldn't see how to do this in Rhythmbox either. Maybe "topicons" and "sound menu" are not the right search terms?
