Thank you for the suggestions Malcolm. I've managed to figure out a way to
resolve this but my way is only a weird hack. Developers might have some
insight into what's going on here.
I noticed inside the /usr/local/libexec/mixer_applet2 file there are paths
to the icons hard coded in. The paths look like this:
Each icon referenced has a NONE prepended where /usr should be. I assume
this is because NONE gets dynamically replaced with /usr at execution time.
Using sed to replace all occurrences of NONE with /usr fixes the problem.
This is strange considering that all the other applets in this directory
also reference their icons using a NONE prefix and all the other applets
properly DISPLAY their icons too. For some reason this one applet when
executed fails to have NONE dynamically replaced with /usr.
I'd love to have a developer venture a guess as to why that may be. Is
there a developer list for gnome-applets?
