No ability to increase volume


In error I deleted all the icons on the bottom right of my taskbar.

I got them all back except sound volume and now have no ability to vary the volume of my laptops speakers.

I have tried to run KMIX but it will not load and entering sound, volume, audio, kmix etc into 'add wigits' search draws a blank!

This is KDE4? and which version of Slackware? On another topic it seemed you were still on 14.1 on one of your systems. It might matter because 14.2 has the pulseaudio system.

Instead of
Right click in systray -> Panel options -> Add widgets,
try
Right click in systray -> System tray settings -> Entries
and check if Volume control is still there and if you can set it to active/visible.

Alsamixer should probably work anyway, I believe even if you have pulseaudio it will change the master volume at least, you can open any terminal (konsole for example) and type
Code:
alsamixer

Im running 14.1

Right click in systray -> Panel options -> Add widgets displays nothing about sound, audio, speaker etc. Nor does the search

Where are System Tray Settings?

alsamixer and pulseaudio do not come up in any widget searches

Maybe the entire system tray was removed then somehow, if right-clicking on the bottom right of your taskbar does not show "System tray settings".
Can you (re)add the widget "System Tray"?
