I am using Backtrack 4 and loving it. But the one problem is the audio volume slider of the gnome notification bar is not working. Hence I have to depend on either that of VLC's audio volume slider or on the speaker's hardware.
How can I fix this?
This works on Backtrack 5 R3 and may work on Backtrack 4.
Go to System » Preferences » Startup Applications
Make sure you’re in the tab ‘Startup programs’. Click on "Add". Then enter the following
Now logout, then login again. It's normal that sound doesn't work on Ubuntu 10.04 under root.
