How to change volume/audio settings using the command line?
How do I change the volume for everthing using only the command line?
And where are any audio config files? I don't see no audio device in the xorg.conf file.
What kind of soundcard do you have? Are you using ALSA or the kernel audio module? Which kernel? There are options for using the command line, but I think probably the easiest, assuming ALSA, would be to use the alsamixer which uses ncurses to give a gui look from the command line. You can also of course use the asoundrc file, again, I believe is ALSA specific.
alsamixer, like MasterC says, or amixer is a CLI version. There's rexima and aumix has an ncurses (maybe CLI, too?) version. Probably several others. I use alsamixer interactively (it looks so cool :) ) and amixer in scripts and whatnot - who needs the extra junk when alsa does it well and you're going to have alsa anyway? But if you're using OSS, then probably rexima or aumix.
-- Just remembered - aumix is CLI as well, definitely.
Need some help with alsamixer here... :D
I got sound working since I can see the sound modules loaded using lsmod
But when I start alsamixer from the console, it hangs with half the mixer bars displayed... i cannot hit Esc or do anything but close the console and start a new one...
Here are some relevant info, I'm running kernel 2.6.4, redhat 9, onboard via82xx, and alsa stuff version 1.04...
Also upgraded ncurses and ncurses-devel from from 5.3.4 to 5.4.5...
I have just downloaded version 1.05, going to try that later... In the mean time, i hope to veify the problem before moving on...
