    You could try to clean out all kinds of KMix settings:
    There are the files "~/.kde4/share/config/kmixrc" and "~/.kde4/share/config/kmixctrlrc".
    And then there is the directory "~/.kde4/share/apps/kmix".

    In addition, there is Pulseaudio.
    The directory "~/.pulse" and maybe the file "~/.pulse-cookie"


    (All in your home folder, of course.)

    Sorry, deeste,

    But there is nothing funny with Lord_emsworth advice. There could be something wrong in the configuration files and finding out what exactly is not a nice task (eve if it can be doen in a reasonable amount of time). Removing them from the users poiunt of view, loging out and back in again to let them be generated anew might help.
    A complete messed up desktop can be restored to the defaults in the same way and is advised (and thankfully executed) here often.

    A variant is not to delete those files, but rename them. They can then be renamed back to the original name if needed (but I guess Lord_emsworth guessed that you understood that variant yourself)

    A variant may be to generate a new user and see if the problem is also manifest when this user is running (or ask other users you may have allready on the system). In this case you do not destroy anything in your "own" users environment.

    i don't think he found the advice funny, but the fact that he didn't think
    of this earlier. happened to me, too. a while ago kmix used 100%
    resources, just as it did with the OP, and i simply uninstalled kmix,
    using alsamixer instead. some time later i thought of the option to remove
    kmix conf. files, reinstalled, and since then it's working ok. i also find
    it "funny" that i didn't think of that first...

    Hm, you could be right, but why doesn't he report then that he did remove the config files and that it worked (or not)?

    i understood his message that he did, but he didn't make that clear. i
    assume he got his problem solved and isn't paying attention to this thread
    anymore. not particularly nice, but not unheard of either. interest in
    "the community" limited to his own needs -- or he's not connected to the
    internet at all times, or his boss doesn't approve of this type of
    thing...many possible reasons.

    You are of course correct, but I allways try not to jump to conclusions by assuming all those things. Being it technical (people telling stories here, bit not showing what the system did) or otherwise. Thus for me he did not say so, thus he did not do it or he thinks that we are looking over his shoulders.
    And about those who never tell something that a solution helped them (and maybe even say "thank you") you are allso correct. Why are we trying to help anyway? Sigh...
