Unfortunately, the cover art is not displayed. The volume control does not work either.

I love this desklet, but here are some behaviors that I think can be revised: in Mint, the album cover doesn't appear if it's playing via Chromium, just by Firefox or some local player. Now, I just installed it on Debian 11 and the cover don't show up in Firefox either, just in the local player. When you can, could you check? Thanks!

Fully functional. Thanks for the great desklet!

This was a most desirable Desklet for me, but I have found that there are some issues. I am using Linux mint Cinnamon 20.0. The installation is fine but I can see that the desktop CPU ( intel i7-9700) count rises from a nominal 0-3% with no applications or Soundbox running to 13% as soon as Soundbox is installed - when idle! Additionally from a UI perspective, it is very easy to accidentality increase the volume to 100% (or more) if you move the desklet by mouse. The detection area is quite large. Lastly, After making changes to the config, moving and theming the desklet it can freeze, infact a repoot can be required after removing the desklet and uninstalling since it is reluctant to release the physical space it occupied until a restart. A much needed desklet, that on the face of it looks good and is properly featured but which has some issues I cant live with, shame.

This desklet seems to only show one application volume control when "Show application volume controls" is switched on, even if multiple applications are playing sound (Firefox and LMMS in my case). This desklet would be useful if I could adjust the app volumes in parallel as I can do in the PulseAudio Volume Control application.

In Mint 19.2 i get a few different Imlib errors like this: ***** Imlib2 Developer Warning ***** : This program is calling the Imlib call: imlib_free_image(); With the parameter: image being NULL. Please fix your program.

Both previous comments are mistaken. The desklet works just fine on Debian (Cinnamon) - otto@debian:~$ cinnamon --version Cinnamon 3.2.7 otto@debian:~$ lsb_release -a No LSB modules are available. Distributor ID: Debian Description: Debian GNU/Linux 9.6 (stretch) Release: 9.6 Codename: stretch otto@debian:~$
