After automatic updates pushed through the update manager yesterday (Dec. 7?), the sound icon has disappeared from the system tray. Does anyone know how to restore it? I am running Mate on Mint 14 Nadia.
As a note, one reason why I uprgraded from Mint 13 to 14 was to fix an application for which the audio broke due to an update pushed through the Mint 13 update manager. The developers have done a great job on Mint 14 (much better memory management and more stable than 13). but I think that more care should be taken to not push updates that break things through the update manager.
