Like I said, I am very new to Linux so any help will be greatly appreciated.
No matter what your Desktop Environment is, you can always open a Terminal/Console (or Konsole) window and simply type in it 'alsamixer', like a command. This'll bring up a GUI with some bars and stuff... To read the help, press F2, and then you can procede to change the volumes for playback, capture of all with F3 through F5, respectively. You close the program with the [ESC] key.
