    So you have sound, right?

    By right-clicking the icon of kmix in the tray, chose channel and I think it is PCM you have to use. Anyway, open kmix and try every channel. You can also do it in terminal with alsamixer.

    So, what was the problem?

    Check in kde system config and assign that key to the mute events in the keyboard mapping.

    i have notused that when i lower the speakers to about 20% with kmix i can only hear sound coming out of the central speaker. i have checked 20 times channels and everything but still cant figure out how to have the same volume on all speakers (5.1) must be a driver probel i am not sure

    I don't think it is a driver problem, but a channel problem in kmix.
