Just finished a brand New Mint 14 Cinnamon 32 bit installation.
No Sound Applet installed in bottom panel.
There is just a "blank" space where the applet should be, and Cinnamon Settings says the applet is installed. (Invisible?)
How to fix this?
I clicked Troubleshoot / restart Cinnamon, and now the sound applet appears.
When I restarted the computer, the applet is missing again.
