Kmix - Sound on different channels

Postby Coxeroni » Fri Sep 04, 2009 5:17 pm

I'm using an EeePC 1000H with Gloria KDE and KMix with Alsa sound drivers (I guess :D).

I am wittnessing something strange with the sound:

When I play something in e.g. amarok, than I have to tune a different channel (here Lineout) and flash videos are tuneable in volume by "Digital" channel.

So the problem is, that I do not really have a master channel where I can set the volume level for the whole system, I always have to change the main channel in order to hear sound of something, or not.

Is there any way how I can fix that so that I can control the sound with one slider?

In Kmix I can choose between PCM, Lineout, Capture, Digital and iSpeaker (only mute/unmute).

Edit: To be more precise: All volume at max, lineout selected as main channel. When I play a youtube video, it does not care if I press mute, but it does care when I lower the volume to 0, than it shuts up. So it seems to be mute problem what so ever with flash or so, but it is the same for the system sounds like startup or shutdown sound. Because amarok is quiet when I press mute.
