In the console.

$ kmix (no output - kmix started, icon appears in systray)
$ kmix --keepvisibility (output because it's already running)
Connecting to deprecated signal


If kmix *wasn't* installed you'd get a command not found error.

What do you get from?:-
$ kmix
$ ps -C kmix

If it *wasn't* functioning you "should" have got a system error.

I don't know what theme you have running so I don't know the exact
appearance - the icon should appear as a small speaker:-

It's a small icon and easy to miss...
Hovering over the icon allow master volume control with the scroll
button, right-clicking on the icon allows access to the mixer panels.
