What distro are you using?

Is pavucontrol installed?

Description: PulseAudio Volume Control

PulseAudio Volume Control (pavucontrol) is a simple GTK+ based volume control
tool (mixer) for the PulseAudio sound server. In contrast to classic mixer
tools this one allows you to control both the volume of hardware devices and of
each playback stream separately. It also allows you to redirect a playback
stream to another output device without interrupting playback.
