#4906 new defect

No indicator when headphones are plugged in

Reported by: SAMdroid Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: Unspecified
Component: Sugar Version: Git as of bugdate
Severity: Minor Keywords:
Cc: Distribution/OS: Fedora
Bug Status: Unconfirmed


Tested on fc24 on commodity hardware with sugar 0.107

The icon in the frame does not change nor does the "Speaker" text change. GNOME recognises that there are headphones and displays it in it's menu.

This is probably annoying in classrooms if people are trying to listen to audio. Headphones are very useful for doing so without annoying your classmates. It's by extension useful to know if your headphones are actually plugged in.

Probably a good gci task :)

Do remember there is hardware without headphone detect capability, and include it in your test plan.

Can you tell me what change is desired?
For the "Speaker" text it should change to "Headphones".

But for the speaker icon, what should it change to? Is there a icon for headphone already or shall I make it first?

Rephrasing the problem: with the headphones detected, Sugar continues to show an icon for a speaker, which although it does form part of headphones, Sam's mind and other minds map headphones to a different symbol; this is a source of cognitive dissonance for users of multiple user interfaces.

  • label of palette should change from *speaker* to *headphones*,
  • icon on frame should change from a speaker to headphones.

I'm not aware of an icon in our library for headphones. My preference is for the icon to be an image of over-the-head banded headphones, not in-ear earphones.
