Im on Debian Wheezy, and am currently running MATE on it. I see in preference, it has "MATE Volume Control". I looked in it, because my headphone wasnt working. After I clicked mute on the speaker (shouldn't have) and unclicked it, my speakers were silent. I tried turning up the volume and stuff, but there was no way to set it. So, I had to go back in Gnome shell to turn the sound back on.
Are there any other sound managers I could use that doesn't fuke up like MATE's?
Also, on the same note, why do I have 2 screen saver options? I see I have XScreenSaver and some default Gnome screensaver. Both in preferences.
