Hello Thinkpad users,
I own an x60s and I spent this morning battling a sound problem.
Long story short: there are two grey buttons on my laptop and they
control the volume (3 if we consider the mute button); I would like to
control the volume via command line and not using those.
Now, I can *see* where the volume change happens, i.e.
f at x60s:~$ amixer -c 29
Simple mixer control 'Console',0
Capabilities: pvolume pvolume-joined pswitch pswitch-joined
Playback channels: Mono
Limits: Playback 0 - 14
Mono: Playback 6 [43%] [on]
^-- pressing the grey buttons will change
but when I try to set the relevant parameter it fails:
f at x60s:~$ amixer -c 29 set Console 100%
amixer: Invalid command!
I am a bit at loss now, so here is the question: is there a way to
control the internal mixer via command line?
Thanks in advance
