Volume indicator not working after xubuntu 13.10 upgrade


xubuntu-logo-icon-largeQ. My volume indicator is broken after the upgrade to Xubuntu 13.10. The sound still works.


A. This is a known bug, but can be easily fixed:


In a terminal window, run: 

sudo nano /usr/share/dbus-1/services/indicator-sound.service

Modify the line:




Save (Ctrl+X -> press Y to save) and reboot.

this doesn't fix the problem though. I can't believe no sound was acceptable to release...
