Fedora :: Volume Control Keys On Keyboard Don't Control Volume Anymore


Volume up, volume down and mute keys on the keyboard don't control the volume any longer.They worked before. Hitting the keys brings up a progress bar widget with the volume level unchangeable, set at 0% (which is not accurate at all).It looks like the key mappings or key bindings are working, but there is a disconnect with actual functionality. The volume cannot be changed or muted anymore from the keyboard.

This worked just fine in KDE on Fedora 11 before upgrading KDE components yesterday with Yumex. I am now using KDE 4.3.2 I don't think that it's a coincidence that it stopped working after doing an update.
I updated the kernel and nVidia drivers too, but this problem exists when I went back and tested with the previous kernel, so I don't suspect the kernel upgrade. No info in Xorg.conf about the keyboard. Is there a setting that I am missing?

Sound works just fine. I can listen to whatever source I like. This is not a problem with the sound drivers as far as I can tell.I just want to be able to control the volume with the keys on my Logitech Illuminated Keyboard, model Y-UY95. Is anyone else experiencing this?I can adjust the volume with Kmix 3.5 or GNOME Volume Control V2.1

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Usb Headset - Cannot Regulate The Volume Of The Phones (output) Anymore With Gnome-volume-control
since using 10.04 I have a big problem with my usb headset (freetalk everyman)

1. Problem: I cannot regulate the volume of the phones (output) anymore with gnome-volume-control. By default the volume is set to 100% which is way too loud. When I set it under 100% there is no sound at all. Values over 100% work.

2. Problem: The X server is freezing iregulary when I connect the headset and disconnect it, Magic SysRq works. I checked Xorg.0.log and found out that it recognizes the usb headset as keyboard:

Fedora :: Lost Volume Control / Internet And Battery Indicator From Control Panel On F11
I feel little silly asking this, I accidently removed from my gnome panel my internet connection, volume control and battery indicator on F11. how can I add this back. It does not show up in the add to panel menu and the applications do not give you back the default feel.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Set Volume Keys To Not Control PCM?
Right now, it controls both Master and PCM, resulting in weird volume increments. I want PCM to stay at 50 and only change Master with my volume keys.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Wrong Volume Control Via Keyboard?
I own an ASUS G71V laptop and I run openSUSE 11.2 with latest kernel and patches.

I just tried to use Fn+F10/F11/F12 combinations to regulate volume, just to see if they work.

I found that (from KDE 4.4.3) I can see the pop-up volume indicator going up and down as I press the right combination.

Ok... unfortunately, hardware keys regulate the wrong volume slider as I can see by opening Kmix. The front-microphone channel instead of master is regulated.

Actually, I just found that if I click on the volume icon on the taskbar I get the front mic slider, which seems to be bad.

How can I tell KDE that the default channel is the "master"?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: PCM Volume Not Affected By Master Volume Control With Alsa
I'm running Kubuntu 10.10 32 bit on an old DFI KT600AL motherboard based system using the onboard VIA 3058 AC97 audio (because it supports front panel audio connections and none of the add-in PCI soundcards I have do). I have an old Gateway/STB TVPCI TV tuner card (mainly wanted the FM radio part to work) hooked up to the cd audio connector on the motherboard because the digital audio over the pci bus apparently isn't supported for this card (neither is the onboard analog mixer on the tv tuner card, I had to hack a CD-ROM audio cable and solder it to the audio outputs of the tv tuner module on the TV tuner card). When I use the master channel as the master channel (selected in Kmix) then as one would expect it affects the output volume of all other audio playing on the system except that which is being handled by the PCM channel. On Windows the PCM channel was also affected by the "Volume Control" slider such that ALL volume levels were reduced when moving the slider. I'm hoping someone can help me figure out how to make it work like this on Kubuntu.

First off I should warn you that I (like many users of older hardware that is not properly supported under PulseAudio) have uninstalled PulseAudio (because it's garbage) and am using Alsa to manage my audio hardware. I would think that there would be some way to do this using the 'amixer' application to add the PCM channel as a component of the 'Master' channel so that when the volume is turned down using the 'Master' channel control it will affect the PCM channel too (at least the output to the speaker jack, not necessarily the capture or mix volume though), but I'm not really any good at doing things from a terminal window and the options for the amixer command kind of confused me.

Ubuntu :: Default Volume To 100% In Terminal With Gnome-volume-control-applet?
Is there a way to default volume to 100% in the terminal with gnome-volume-control-applet or any other program? I am setting up a dedicated Zsnes machine which boots into Fluxbox but the volume is muted by default. There isn't a man page for gnome-volume-control-applet.

When I log into Gnome the volume is set to 100%, but Fluxbox is always set to mute.

Ubuntu :: Lost Top Sound Icon & Can't Control Volume With Keyboard?
my issue is as my Title "Lost Top Sound Icon & Can't control volume with Keyboard" OS: Ubutnu 9.10 x64 - Karmic Koala Lost the Top Panel Sound Icon, I even go to: System > Preferences > Sound Message Pops Up: Waiting for sound system to respond

Funny thing I do get Ubuntu OS Audio sounds Now as well I lost control of my Volume with my Keyboard, pretty sure it has to do with the same Sound icon in the Top panel that is missing The only way I can control Audio is Manually using: gnome-alsamixer 0.9.7

It sucks big time, because I can't control my Audio when ever I need to mute it or upper/lower it through my keyboard fastly when needed. having to manually opening an application to be able to change/control the Audio volume is a huge hassle for me

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Volume Control Can Only Do Mute Or Full Volume?
I am struggling with a problem with the volume control... when i try to adjust the volume with the sliding bar i can not do it. If i put the scrollbar to the 0 position, it is muted. when i move it to anywhere else, i get the full volume. From other programs like vlc, i can adjust the volume with no problem.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Very Little Control Over Volume Using Master Volume Level?
My volume control seems to have only three settings: TOO LOUD, VERY QUIET, OFF. If I adjust the Master volume slider from the Panel, only about the right 1/8th has any effect and if I slide it past about the 95% mark, I get no sound at all. At the far-right end of the volume control, I get total volume. It's basically like the slider only has any impact in the top 5% of it's space. Below 95% of the slide, there is zero volume.

It's so drastic, that one tap down of the volume button on my keyboard kills the sound (because it nudges the slider past that 95% mark). This happens in the Audio settings, etc., system-wide. If I adjust the volume for an individual app from within the app (MPlayer, for example) it behaves exactly as expected (that is, app volume works smoothly, it's just master volume that has this issue). I have run through most of the "obvious" things-- I'm wondering if I broke something by installing the extra KDE packages to get Amarok to work.

Ubuntu :: Volume Control - Volume Slider Moves Up Even If Try To Slide It Down
I'm using 10.04 now and it runs ok, except one strange thing in the Volume control applet. Sometimes, when I click on the volume slider, it moves up. Even if I try to slide it down, it moves up on every click. The same when I click left of it - it keeps moving up! This is very annoying at night when the music gets loud and wakes everybody. It happens with or without Compiz turned on

Debian :: Sound Not Card Configured - Error 'Volume Control Did Not Find Any Elements And/or Devices To Control" - Driver
Laptop is Dell Latitude C600/C500 with Pentium III 850Mhz, 256Kb L2 Cache, 256MB RAM, ATI M3 video card, HD 20005 MB and sound card is EES Maestro 3i. After trying to do something with Windows 2000 which was installed on the machine, I decided to put Linux without keeping windows on the machine. First I try with Xubuntu (latest version) which was working but slowly, then I found that Debian could work fine on that machine. I have installed latest version 5.08 and was surprised how goodly old machine can work. I solved problems with screen resolution (change from 800x600 to 1024x768) but I couldn't find solution how to fix problem with sound.

Actually I don't have sound on the machine. I looked for a linux driver for that sound card and Dell is only providing windows drivers. Then I found that I can solve the problem with ALSA drivers but I couldn't find the easy way (or any way at all) to install drivers and to get back the sound. When I click on 'Volume Control' (top right corner of the screen) I get the message: 'Volume control did not find any elements and/or devices to control. This means either that you don't have the right GStreamer plugins installed, or that you don't have a sound card configured.'

Fedora :: Volume Control Not Working Properly
I am having issues with Fedora 11 and audio. I have pulse audio running and configured. The volume control on the top panel (GDE) works properly, but i do not hear any volume until I move it up past 50%. I tested it with the advanced volume controls opened and it even shows the master volume not moving until the volume slider on the panel reaches at least 50%. Can anybody help with fixing this. It is very annoying. Thanks in advance for the support.

Fedora :: Control Volume From Ssh Command Line?
I use F13. How can I control the volume of my desktop ssh'ing into it from my laptop?

I use the laptop like a remote control to control my desktop through vnc while watching movies, but changing volume through this setup is a bit too cumbersome and clumsy. I tried alsamixer but it behaves strangely and doesn't change volume.

Fedora :: Make Gnome-volume-control Revert Back To Actually Being Gmixer?
installed F12 and noticed that the volume control applet is now all Pulseaudio rubbish, not Alsa like gmixer used to be. So now I don't seem to be able to mute my speakers when I'm using my headset, which in F10 I could do by just muting LFE/Center.Note I don't want the speakers to be disabled when I have the headphones plugged in (like Jack does) I just want to be able to control volume of the mixer channels individually - as sometimes I'll be playing music through the speakers and will receive a Skype call and want to mute the music, but also don't want the Skype sound coming out of the speakers - just the headphones.

I've tried setting up 4.1+input, 5.1+input, 4.0+input etc; but for some reason, even though the PulseAudio mixer thing has 5 individual sliders, they do nothing as they "jump" back to 100% when you slide them - even with the channels unlocked. gmixer and alsamixer do the job, but pulseaudio is the applet and only seems to control the master volume, not the individual channels. Any ideas - or perhaps a way to make gnome-volume-control revert back to actually being gmixer?

Fedora :: The Volume Control Tray Icon Was Disappeared When Removed Pulseaudio
Because of a horrible problem (volume bursting, this is known bug), I completely removed Pulseaudio and some related packages. So I'm now using pure ALSA, and it's working fine. Yet, the volume control tray icon was disappeared. How can I recover it?

Slackware :: GSB Volume Control
I've installed 13.1 and the new GSB. I like it a lot (better than old versions), but the volume applet doesn't work.I did some reading and apparently this is due to a conflict between the GNOME people and the Pulse Audio people. So I was wondering if it was at all possible to use the xfce volume applet.

Slackware :: Volume Control In KDE
Newbie slackware user here, I'm having some issues getting keyboard volume control to work properly.I recently fixed my network adapter problem and I managed to get flash player installed despite my minimal knowledge of linux and slackware, but there's yet another small glitch that I can't fix.When I'm logged in as root, keyboard volume controls work perfectly, mute mutes the audio + increases the percentage, - decreases the percentage, etc.However, when I'm logged in as another user and I try to use keyboard volume controls, the bar will pop up in the middle of the screen, but it will be stuck at 0% no matter that I do. (Sound still plays though, it seems that volume is at 100% while the bar in the middle reads 0%).

Fedora :: Volume Control Buttons Not Working In Fedora 11
After running my computer for a while, my volume control always messes up. I wonder if it is some app. Mute, raise, lower volume all fail, and so does the little volume icon in my notification area. When the computer boots up things are fine. I can do some more testing later to try and pinpoint the source but I need to wait a few hours for a download to finish. I can still use Advanced Volume Control and all the options there work.

Slackware :: Mp3blaster Volume Control ?
I am using Slackware 13.0 quite out of the box, normally I can change volume for every app using alsamixer. As my laptop is a little bit old working in X uses a lot of resources I have been searching for more and more console based apps. With good results until now.

I started using mp3blaster to listen to music. Great app and all. Only problem I have got is that I have difficulty controlling the volume for it. When in alsamixer I can mute the master channel an control Pcm in small increments so that I can speak about control. When using mp3blaster I have got no control whatsoever. Cant mute the vol channel nor can I control the Pcm2 channel in any way.

My questions are: How do I control the volume in mp3blaster? Why do I have Pcm2 instead of Pcm in mp3blaster? What other info would be needed for anyone to push me in the right direction to solve this problem?
