Logitech G15, Slacware 12.2 and Mute Key...

Hi again.
Thanks to everybody for the help you always give me.

I have a small question, not a hard question I think...

To the point:

When I press the "Mute" key on the keyboard I get a msgbox that says "Sound Muted" or "Sound Unmuted" (In spanish...), but the sound is not been muted really...

If I try to use the sound up or sound down keys to change the volume it only changes from 0% to 10% (0% or 10%, NOT 5% for example), but the real volume is not changing...

I want to change the master sound with that keys, not the Amarok sound...

In the Alsamixer console, the "Analog Front" volume is what is controlling the sound, so I want to change this volume with the keyboard...

Thanks to all..

Some information that could be useful:

Slackware 12.2 ships with the Linux kernel, the Xorg 1.4.2 X
server (with many driver, library, and application updates), Xfce 4.4.3, KDE 3.5.10...

I have installed all the things from:

I have configured Amarok to work properly with the multimedia keyboard keys (Play/Pause, Next Track, Previous Track, Stop) but the sound keys (Sound Up, Sound Down and Mute) are not working like they should...

The display of the keyboard is showing the hour and the song that is been played in Amarok, so i suppose that the keyboard drivers are correctly installed...

At the left of the clock I can see a Kmix thing...
I've tried choosing there the "Analog Front" as master channel and all the other channels but nothing happens...

If you need more info, just ask...

Anyone? No ideas?


I can't remember now, but I think I managed to fix it playing a bit with the alsaconf and blacklisting the module of the onboard sound card.
