If this worked in Ubuntu, this is probably something to do with keybindings rather than alsa. The volume is not really analog & it does generate keycodes.

I had this exact problem on my own Toshiba Satellite with KDE 4.2. I just had to bind the keys XF86AudioLowerVolume & XF86AudioRaiseVolume to the volume control.

Can't tell you exactly how to do this cuz I'm not familiar with #!. Hope that at least points you in the right direction.

Found this info about openbox that should work for you.
Add the following inside the file ~/.config/openbox/rc.xml under the <keyboard> section

<keybind key="XF86AudioLowerVolume">
<action name="Execute">
<execute>amixer -c 0 set Master 5%- unmute</execute>
</action>
</keybind>
<keybind key="XF86AudioRaiseVolume">
<action name="Execute">
<execute>amixer -c 0 set Master 5%+ unmute</execute>
</action>
</keybind>

I used xev to obtain some of these values and put them in an ~/.Xmodmap file. My bash_profile runs "xmodmap $HOME/.Xmodmap".
Code:
> cat ~/.Xmodmap
!Use ! for comments
!keycode 172 = XF86AudioPlay
!keycode 174 = XF86AudioStop

keycode 176 = XF86AudioRaiseVolume
keycode 174 = XF86AudioLowerVolume
keycode 153 = XF86AudioNext
keycode 144 = XF86AudioPrev
keycode 180 = XF86HomePage
keycode 164 = XF86AudioStop
keycode 162 = XF86AudioPlay
My qosmio laptop has a volume wheel on the side.
