Question Adjusting Sound In Fedora


Hello All,
I would like to turn up my sound in Fedora, yet I have one problem, I cannot find the Volume Control... In RH9 it was under Sound and Video.. Thats not on mine.. did they move it in Fedora? How can I get it back? Right Now the only ways I can turn up the sound is with kscd and my speakers, but doing that does not get as loud as I could get it using the Volume Control tool.

Thanks In Advance..

Weird, I was just about to post about this, anyway the volume control shows up under Sound and Video, but only while running Gnome, where is it under KDE, I can't find it anywhere?

They better have it in KDE, because I don't have Gnome Installed..

I'm not familiar with the tools that you are speaking of. However, you should be able to use a command line application called aumix. Simply type aumix -v <number>, where number is any integer from 0 to 100. So you can type aumix -v 100 to turn your sound all the way up if you want. Also handy is aumix -q, which queries the sound channels and outputs the current volume. aumix is quite common and will be installed on nearly any system so you don't have to worry about whether the GUI is installed, looks different under a different distro, etc. In fact, the GUI's are generally just a front end to aumix anyhow.

aumix -l for line
aumix -p for PC speaker
aumix -c for CD

aumix -h will print all the available channels if you want to configure others.

Hi all,

even using aumix, adjusting volume and saving it, when my system has been rebooted, the parameters are lost and each time I boot up my FC1 System I need to readjust the volume & PCM sound level.

... any tip ? Where are saved those parameters ?

I am not real sure why your system does that, after I adjusted my sound in the terminal it stayed that way..

Hi!

You can right-click in the bottom to add volume control applet (Kmix).
