Re-assigned to nautilus as gnome_voluma-manager was obsoleted by it.

Note: I haven't gmixer installed

gnome-volume-manager is about storage, it's a name confusion.

Finally found the right blocker and process for this mixer setting problem:

An output of alsa-info.sh is already attached.

I'm using a stereo pc speaker connected in the back of my desktop. Despite the volume I've raised was advertised as the Master Volume in alsamixer, it is advertised as Front Left/Right in the output diff.
