Control system sound solved

Postby alcatraz on Sat Mar 01, 2008 6:33 am

Hello guys,

I've a small problem with my sound control under Linux Mint Daryna.
If I try to control the system sound with the function keys and [LEFT] [RIGHT], an image apprears which display the changings of my commands. (louder, quieter, ...). But these control does not control the system sound. That does not take any changes on the volume of for example amaroK.

That worked, but now it does not work anymore :(

What can be the problem?

(I hope you understand what I want to say :P)

If I changes on that "volume panel" don't make changes on the system volume.

Do you know now what I mean?

I don't recognize that one....
Which version do you use?
xfce, fluxbox?
This is not the gnome nor the KDE standard...

Yes, that's the image I get on Gnome Linuxmint when I use the the volume buttons. Try going to Control Center>Sound & select the General tab. At the bottom you can select what is controlled by the volume buttons. Either Master or PCM is most commonly used.

Aha - I've got it
You've got a keyboard with multimedia keys among them at least volume
I found it when I tried the volume buttons on my Logitech keyboard - I don't think they work in Windows but now they do :)
There must be some setting for this to work I think - I'll have to explore...

Alpha-Geek, I cannot find a "General"-Tab in my sound settings :(
I have just "Devices", "Sounds" and "System beep".
And yes, it is the keyboard-controller.

Neither can I - and this made me explore these keyboard buttons. I have so far not found where they are configured, I would guess the gconf-editor but have not found them there
This has to be something that I'll come back to you about when or if I find a solution - and googling this is not easy. Bump this topic at the end of the week if you have not received an answer. Yes it takes time and you can live without a solution, but I'll try to find it

I managed to fix the problem. I just installed KMix and it worked fine.

sudo apt-get install kmix

@Alcatraz
Sorry 'bout that. Thats what happens when I try to work from memory. Should have said "Devices" tab. NOT "General" Glad you found a "fix". This is what I was talking about.

Hello, I installed Linux Mint 4.0 KDE and I try to listen music on Amarok or go in internet AND I don't have any sound. I tried to find driver on the Realtek website but it's always for window. Can you help me? Thanks
