I installed OSS on my laptop because it has an ich8 chipset, which is not supported by ALSA. I was wondering if anybody has found an easy way to get Kmix to work with OSS (without me having to recompile) or if there are any other mixers that work for KDE. All I want is something that sits in the KDE tray that controls the main volume, that can also be controlled by the volume up/down buttons on my laptop. If anybody knows of a way I can achieve this, I will be very happy. I know that it works in GNOME, but I need something that works in KDE. I don't want to have to open ossxmix just to make a minor adjustment to the volume. Thank you

--------->Opend Sound System

close

open kmix
------>Settings
------->Configure KMix
-------->set un-checkek Restore Volumes on log in

----------> Now set your volumes on kmix


kdesudo systemsettings

------>Hardware

That didn't fix the problem. I uninstalled ALSA when I installed OSS 4.0. Now, Kmix doesn't have any mixers to select in the settings window.

I already had that enabled (I saw that suggestion somewhere else before). Is there any way to use the gnome volume control in kde? That works with OSS.
