Bug Description

Binary package hint: kmix

I'm using M-audio Revolution 5.1 in kubuntu 8.04, kde 3.5.9

Because of alsa bug:

I had to switch to OSS sound driver oss-linux_v4.0-1006_i386).

First, Kmix didn't start automatically.

After launching it manualy all sliders are at their maximum and what ever I do they are always return to maximum.

So, how can I make Kmix to work in a proper way?

There is a patch to add OSS4 support for kmix-3.5.9:

Some discussion about it is hear:

Is there any update to this? We have many new users converting to OSS4 because of the X-fi, but lots of other high-end sound card owners and even onboard HD audio as well). Please include the patch in an update through Adept/Synaptic/apt. Thank you.

It appears jr is the kdemultimedia maintainer.

This looks like a significant feature addition and probably can't be included as an update to Hardy at this point.

Please bring up the issue and the patch on the kde-devel mailing list, and file a wishlist bug on to get this included in KDE4.

Thank you, Yuriy. I have filed the bug on

It seems that bug is fixed.
Upgraded to kmix 2.6.1 (KDE 3.5.10) - there is no any mixer to choose, see attached screenshot.

dpkg-reconfigure linux-sound-base and activating Sound System from Kcontrol didn't helped.

Seeing as this is a wishlist item and that we don't really currently have the resources in Kubuntu to implement this, I am closing this bug here. If and when the KDE Multimedia team implements this feature, we will pick it up in the next Kubuntu release. In the meantime you can track this feature request at . Thanks for understanding.
