Newbie. Change volume control's default channel ? (From Headphone to PCM)


Hi, just installed ubuntu 6.10 on Asus a3ac laptop

- Configured HDA-intel ALC880 soundcard to enable output from headphone using this tutorial -> www.dev-board.com. Finished that and headphone output works fine.

- When I open volume control, now, the headphone channel is the default channel, thus when I hit Fn+F12 (increase volume) it will change the headphone's channel and not pcm. Any idea to make pcm main channel in the volume control?

-Checked volume control options, but there is no switch to select a default channel

-Newbie here so please keep it simple. Thank You

Well, this is the right section.

You can change the default line by right clicking on the loudspeaker in the bar then it is one of these entries. But I don't remember which one it is, I'm on KDE right now.

Thanks for your reply but I'm sure there is no switch or option from the volume control. Hope someone comes with a solution

I think it isn't the menu control it's another entry if you right click. It's where you select what is considered to be the master channel.

Adding a master channel? Depends on what you mean. If one exists see above, otherwise by using a more appropriate driver?
