if I change the sound volume with the applet in the taskbar cinnamon crashes sometimes and does a restart. where can i find an error log to look what's going on?
This happens with other applets that can change volume too.
I filed this bug in the Mint launchpad back in January and there are a number of people who have commented saying it happens to them as well: https://bugs.launchpad.net/linuxmint/+bug/1274802
I'm using Cinnamon 2.0.14 and it currently still has this problem. I haven't tried version 2.2 yet to see if it still has the same issue.
Should be fixed in current master: https://github.com/linuxmint/Cinnamon/commits/master/files/usr/share/cinnamon/applets/sound%40cinnamon.org/applet.js
