Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 466138
Cannot change volume through gnome-volume-control slider
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:57:08 EST
Description of problem:
Clicking on the gnome-volume-control on a panel opens up the volume control slider. However, moving the slider doesn't actually change the volume. One must double click the gnome-volume-control to fully open it up to adjust the volume level. As a result, it also seems one can not change the overall volume level through a headset.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Volume Applet 2.22.3
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add the gnome-volume-control applet to a panel
2. Left click the applet so that the volume control slider open up.
3. Try to adjust the volume level by moving the slider.
Volume control is not changed
Volume control is changed

No exceptions in /var/log/messages when changing the volume control.
Please let me know what logs you want me to provide or any other info.
This is not a bug. If you experience this behaviour here is what you need to do:
1. System -> Preferences -> Hardware -> Sound.
2. Go to the "Default Mixer track" section.
3. Choose the device you can seem to control or change its volume through the applet or headset controls.
4. Using the control or shift keys select all the channels you want to be able to control (e.g. PCM).
5. Hit "close."
Result: You will now be able to control the volume through the slider or your headset.
