Sound Controller


Is there any software like Volumouse for Windows to control the volume of the system with mouse wheel scroll?

You don't say what version/distro of Linux you're using, or what desktop environment, so it's hard to say.

Best guess: yes. You can do it with the regular volume/mixer icon in KDE, and have been able to for years. Probably the same with Gnome, although I've not tried the new version.

Ok...so then use the Gnome mixer applet. And since you're using RHEL6, you can call Red Hat support, since you're paying for it, right?? RHEL is a commercial distro. If you're not paying, you WILL NOT get access to updates/patches/bugfixes, and will not be able to use online updates/installer to add new apps. Your system will be unstable and insecure, quickly.

Load CentOS instead...it's virtually identical, and FREE. And unless you have a GENUINE NEED for a server-class distro, load something else. Servers, as a rule, don't have sound, bluetooth, wifi, etc....all the stuff you see on consumer-grade hardware. Naturally, since they don't need it, support is usually lacking. Load Fedora, Mint, Ubuntu, openSUSE, or any other distro instead.
