Ubuntu – Rhythmbox controls are missing from the SoundMenu

Make sure you have package rhythmbox-plugins installed. It contains MPRIS support which is vital for Sound Menu to work. After the package is installed, launch/restart Rhythmbox. Controls should appear in Sound Menu then.

You can find this package in Ubuntu Software Center:

Install via the software center

Or you can install it through terminal using this command:

sudo apt-get install rhythmbox-plugins
