I have installed Peppermint 9 today (30 June 2018). The only problem I found was that there is no notification when doing volume up and down (using volume keys on my HP Notebook). The notification works for the brightness buttons, but not for the volume buttons. The notifications were working fine under Peppermint OS 7 and 8 on this same hardware.

Try this...

Open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
xed ~/.config/peppermint-control-center/xbindkeys.conffind the two sections that read:-
Code: [Select]
"amixer -q sset Master 3%+ unmute"
    XF86AudioRaiseVolume

"amixer -q sset Master 3%- unmute"
    XF86AudioLowerVolume
and change them to:-
Code: [Select]
#"amixer -q sset Master 3%+ unmute"
#    XF86AudioRaiseVolume

#"amixer -q sset Master 3%- unmute"
#    XF86AudioLowerVolume
SAVE the file, and exit the text editor.

Now log off/on.

Now test.

did that work ?

I had the same issue on my Dell laptop. 

Performed the suggested changes above and that fixed the issue  ;D.
