This could be user error, but so far no one has been able to explain to me this change. rhythmbox-0.12.1 in Fedora 11 was the last version to come with the GNOME panel applet icon. It offers a context menu to play or pause and to skip tracks. This made the program far more usable to me because I could control it from the applet panel. But now, as of 0.12.3, this feature is gone. Can I turn it on again? I can't seem to figure out how. I don't want to use rhythmbox fullscreen either.
The second problem with 0.12.3 on my system is the volume control. If I skip tracks, the volume control is reduced to almost silence. I have to open the volume control and jack up the volume to hear things again. But, if I let rhythmbox play tracks as is, the volume remains the same. Anyone else experiencing this problem in F-11?
I've dropped back to rhythmbox-0.12.1 for now.
