'alsactrl store' doesn't seem to store...

Ok, so my default alsamixer settings have the sound a bit to high, and I wanna change the default volume.

I change the volume in alsamixer then (as root) type: alsactrl store
yet it doesn't seem to store the settings.

I have also tried 'alsactrl store 0' but get the same resault. Anybody know another way or know
why this would be happening to me?

Ok, so it turns out that 'alsactl store' does its job (i.e. changes /etc/asound.state) however the problem was that
KDE changes the default volumes using kmix.
If anybody wants to know howto change this you need to edit the file:
and change the line following lines accordingly


Thought I'd post the answer incase somebody else had this problem.
