I have got my audio card and
alsamixer working on my Gentoo installation, as I'm too bored to visit that program all the time I need to make a subtle audio adjustment I'm looking forward to doing this with a volume control on my Xfce panel and/or the hardware audio keys just like I'm used to...
So... How do I install a volume control in Xfce and get support for my hardawre buttons?
I tried installing
xfce4-mixer but I only seem to have an entry in
Applications > Multimedia called
Mixer which upon launching gives the following error:
GStreamer was unable to detect any sound devices. Some sound system specific GStreamer packages may be missing. It may also be a permissions problem.
Although I do have audio working...
