    The audio should 'just work'. The alsa sound driver is provided with the kernel.

    What audio problems do you have?

    The audio works (but at full blast!), the keyboard function keys to control up/down of the volume control do not work and I can not find any audio controls in any utility anywhere...

    Which desktop environment are you using? For KDE, there is KMix (accessible via Kickoff Application Launcher>>Applications>>Multimedia>>Sound Mixer). There is a similar mixer for Gnome, and 'alsamixer' available from the terminal.

    You may also have to select a different keyboard model, to activate the audio function keys. In KDE this is in Systemsettings
    ° Appreciate my reply? Click the star and let me know why.

    I have seen evidence (from searching) that the multimedia (Volume up/down) keys work with Fedora 13 and recent Ubuntu distros. It may just be a matter of assigning the keyboard shortcuts appropriately. (For KDE, this can be done via KMix>>Settings>>Configure Shortcuts).

    I've got GNOME. found the keyboard settings but no luck. The volume controls do work in individual apps like the wave player, but I'm still searching for a multimedia tool for adjust system volumes and also a driver to work with the Dell Latitude D610 keyboard and built-in volume and speaker on/off controls. There are both the keyboard function keys and a built in hardware controls. Thanks for all your suggestions....I'lll keep plugging away!

    There is an old guide here:
    SDB:Using the Extra Keys on the Keyboard - openSUSE
    ...
    not sure if it will help, but you could look at it.
