kde volume control question
I have a couple of different machines doing this.
Audio works fine, volume control works fine from the mixer, depending on
which control I move. However, the systray volume control related to
kmix doesn't control the device in kmix which controls the volume.
For example, on this machine in front of me, I can be playing some
audio, but the little blue KDE volume control down by the clock doesn't
affect the volume, but if I click on the word "Mixer" when that control
is "open", that will open the mixer window, and I can control the volume
by moving the PCM control in the Output tab.
If it's easy enough to explain, I'd like to know how a mixer works (what
is PCM; what do the green and red lights mean; etc), but that's probably
more complicated (and may vary depending on hardware) than is suitable
here, so my real question ...
How do I get the volume control in the systray to control the PCM
control instead of whatever other control it is presumably controlling?
