Thanks, the bug report led me to a work-around that allows the volume buttons to function. They double step, but at least they work. Here is the recipe and links to the files it uses:http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/m ... 7_i386.debhttp://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/m ... 2_i386.deb
lock the version for each of these
mint update will still try to update to the latest versions - don't let it
I have not seen any problems so far...
