OpenSUSE Multimedia :: No Volume Control In GNOME?

Nov 14, 2009

I normally run KDE, but installed GNOME as well on my netbook (running openSUSE 11.2) to try out. However, I noticed there is no longer any volume control applet. The GNOME panel control is labeled 'deprecated', and the volue Fn keys, which work fine in KDE, do not work at all. I tried launching the PulseAudio Volume Control app, but it gives me a "Connection Failed: Connection Refused error". I still have sound, and I can adjust the volumes in alsamixer, but is rather inconvinient. What is the "right way" to adjust volumes in 11.2's GNOME?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Usb Headset - Cannot Regulate The Volume Of The Phones (output) Anymore With Gnome-volume-control

Jun 12, 2010

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:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Change The Channel Gnome-volume-control Controls?

May 26, 2010

How do i change the channel gnome-volume-control controls? I want it to control pcm but it controls master front. There used to be a setting right in the sound preferences but i think it disappeared with the 9.10 upgrade or at least i can not find it anymore. I've looked on the at gnome alsa mixer while changing the volume and master front gets controlled while pcm is always set to max. The problem with this is that master front does almost nothing to change the actual volume.

If i control pcm with the alsa mixer the volume range is fine. I've found a manual for gnome-volume-control on [URL].en and the pic there actually looks like i remember it looking. But i can not get to that screen. What i have looks completely different. Its a window with the tabs Sound Effects | Hardware | Input | Output | Applications. But there is no sight of any channel settings and the only slider there does the same as the applet one.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Gnome Panel System Tray Volume Control Gone

Aug 3, 2010

The volume control in the Gnome panel system tray has disappeared from my wife's Ubuntu 10.04 system with the master volume set to zero.I was able to restore sound via System->Preferences->Sound master volume, but this is not particularly convienent. How do I restore the panel volume control? (the speaker icon on the panel, between the Network arrows and Chat/Mail setup icons).

Ubuntu :: Default Volume To 100% In Terminal With Gnome-volume-control-applet?

Jul 17, 2010

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.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Volume Control By Application ?

Sep 4, 2010

Is there any way, native or within download, of changing audio volume on a per-application basis? I vaguely remember doing this in the vista basic that was installed on this when I got it a couple of years ago, but was removed after a couple of months due to instability. I'd like music streaming thru VLC louder relative to games being played thru Adobe Flash in Chrome (which are at 100% of possible, 100% of the time, no options other than mute).

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Wrong Volume Control Via Keyboard?

Jun 10, 2010

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"?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Get Kmix To Control Volume Through HDMI?

Sep 4, 2010

I have my Acer Revo R3610 PC connected to my LCD TV through HDMI. The sound works but I cannot control the volume from Kmix. I've added the IEC958 channel to the channels in Kmix but it doesn't provide a slider for it. Only a mute. The master volume slider has no effect at all. Is there any way of controlling the volume when connected through HDMI?

I ran the alsa diagnostics script (/usr/sbin/alsa-info.sh) and uploaded it here.

Here is a quick summary of my Alsa version, sound module loaded and sound card details.

Code:
mediacentre@mediacentre:~> cat /proc/asound/version
Advanced Linux Sound Architecture Driver Version 1.0.22.1.
mediacentre@mediacentre:~> cat /proc/asound/modules

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Rcalsasound Restart Shutdowns Volume Control

Aug 8, 2010

I don't shutdown my OS really often and sometimes the driver of my soundcard seems to crash so I need to restart it. I use the command "rcalsasound restart" which works well or "/etc/init.d/alsasound restart" but I lose the volume control during the operation. Moreover, I have a dell laptop with sound keys and naturally it doesn't work to. Do you know how to restart the volume control applet? And I'd like to know why these commands don't start also the volume control (I'd like to know a bit more how it works).

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Volume Control Resets Alsa-speaker Settings To Max?

Nov 25, 2009

I have 5.1-speaker set, confed succesfully with alsa. alsamixer -c 0 -command shows volume of all the speakers I want to set up. My problem is, when I have alsamixer open and change main volume from gnome-panel (it's called pavucontrol for me, pulseaudio?) it "resets" all speakers to max (100%). Only master volume changes like planned. For example, if I have front speakers set to 50%, center to 75%, surround to 100%, subwoofer to 40%, when changing volume from gnome's panel it only changes master volume, and puts every other speaker to max. How to prevent this? Do you have any clue? I had not any problems with this in openSUSE 11.1. Alt+F2 not working with Emerald decorator Screens go black after 10 minutes or so in openSUSE 11.2

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Headphone / Speaker Output Affected By Volume Control

Jun 25, 2010

Just switched my laptop from that other operating system to openSUSE11.2. Everything works great except for one odd little bug. Both my speakers and headphones have output, are affected by the volume control and it even detects when I plug in headphones and stops output to the speakers. However the moment I adjust the volume, output to my headphones stops, and my speakers start.

Following is my multimedia information: [URL]

Ubuntu Multimedia :: PCM Volume Not Affected By Master Volume Control With Alsa

Mar 7, 2011

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 Multimedia :: Very Little Control Over Volume Using Master Volume Level?

Apr 10, 2011

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.

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

Oct 29, 2009

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

General :: Restore The Gnome Panel Volume Control In 10.04?

May 25, 2010

I use alsa, and I don't have a volume control applet on my Gnome Panel.When I right click and select "add to panel", there is nothing that has to do with "sound", "audio" or "volume" in the list, and the "Indicator Applet" or "Indicator Applet Session" things have no volume controls, or properties that would let you enable any sort of volume control.

How can I get a volume control in Ubuntu, so I don't have to run aumix in a terminal or something? I've got the thing working now. But does anyone know why the new, fancy "Indicator Applet" volume control doesn't appear? The Gnome Volume Control Applet isn't as nicely featured, although it actually works.

I've been using Linux since Redhat 5, it's beyond me why these sorts of problems are still around. Someone should just put a damn "Volume Control" element in the list of things to add to the panel, even if it doesn't work, perhaps showing an error message.

CentOS 5 :: Gnome-volume-control Broken After Yum Update?

May 19, 2010

My challenge today is a broken sound mixer in gnome. Yesterday I run 'yum update' and it installed about 200 updates. This morning I rebooted, when double-clicking the 'speaker' icon in the top right corner of my gnome and I got a "crash".

(I have to go to mixer and enable 'front speakers' before I get any sound - thats something else i'd like to fix one day) Here is what bug-buddy has to say:

Distribution: CentOS release 5.5 (Final)
Gnome Release: 2.16.0 2007-02-18 (CentOS)
BugBuddy Version: 2.16.0
Memory status: size: 265785344 vsize: 265785344 resident: 10158080 share: 7

[Code]...

Any advice would be great - i think I should start by reinstalling the gnome mixer, but not sure which 'yum' that is contained in. I did do some reading about rolling back, but I read that is by default disabled!! Arh! why! only when you broke something you realise you need to turn it on.... o well hey ho.

Fedora :: Make Gnome-volume-control Revert Back To Actually Being Gmixer?

Jan 16, 2010

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?

Hardware :: Alsa: Set Gnome-volume-control-applet To Master Channel?

Nov 6, 2010

On my Fedora 14 system, the gnome-volume-control-applet manipulates the Front channel, rather than Master (or PCM), which means I continually have to use alsamixer in terminal to adjust the audio volume in the other channels.In earlier version of Gnome (pre-pulseaudio?), this could be configured in the volume control preferences, but no more.Anyone know how I can fix this?My audio adapter is pretty standard Intel stuff. lspci: ode:00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 Family) HD Audio Controller

Debian Multimedia :: Laptop Volume Buttons And GNOME Volume Are Not Synchronized

Debian Squeeze 6.0.0 on a Thinkpad T43, sound volume is not synchronized between the laptop volume buttons and GNOME's Volume Applet.

Pressing the volume buttons used to show a volume bar on the screen, as did pressing the mute button.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Control Pulseaudio Volume From Kmix?

May 7, 2010

I've just upgraded to kUbuntu 10.04. I've been using Gnome for a few years now, and felt the need to try KDE again. I've managed to get my NVidia 8200 with HDMI audio working, but have one last annoying issue.

I can't control volume with my RF remote or keyboard.

More to the point, the keys control the sliders in kMix, but to no effect on the sound. This is likely because I need to use Pulseaudio to get my HDMI working. The sliders in Pulse volume control, control the volume nicely. Either I need a way to force kmix to talk to pulse, or a way to re-map these keys to control pulse.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Set Laptop Volume Control At Boot Up?

Nov 10, 2010

how to set at least my headphone/lineout socket precisely to -15dB at boot up? If I knew how to make amixer commands permanent, I wouldn't be re-raising the issue

The Gnome GUI volume control is fine in normal circumstances but to set it accurately requires a bit too much fiddling, IMO - now if someone were to adjust the programming so a dB readout accompanies slider movement, rather than as a pop-up after adjusting the slider, 'twould be more ergonomic, IMO.
