> If using PulseAudio as sound daemon I would advice to install xfce4-volumed-pulse (it's in Gentoo portage at xfce-extra/xfce4-volumed-pulse) instead of xfce4-volumed which is based on ALSA if I remember right. Therefore is will pop-up each time a channel for ALSA is created in PulseAudio.

That sounds interesting, I'll give it a try, thanks!

In fact I formerly installed xfce4-volumed in order to get
notifications when I press the laptop's volume keys. Without this
plugin, I don't get these notifications (xfce4-notify doesn't seem to
act there because it's using DBUS only and I presume it's normal).
