I have installed today gnome 3 (debian wheezy). when I use hotkeys to change sound volume ugly applet window appears

volume applet

my computer slows down while this applet renders. 1 frame per second. geforce 8500 + nvidia proprietary drivers installed properly

How can I disable this applet or make it smaller? I want to use sound volume hotkeys without this ugly window!


It's a known bug between nvidia and xorg.

Upgrade (or downgrande) your nVidia driver from Experimental to fix this issue.

  • I would've said to switch, why use gnome in the first place? – Rob Nov 8 '11 at 16:55
  • because I am always use linux for work. xfce is ideal for me. I have no touch phones to use gnome 3 on it. this is obvious that gnome 3 is no way to work – puchu Nov 8 '11 at 17:47
