I have constant problems with audio, requiring me to start alsamixer in terminal and reselect the USB soundcard frequently (10+ per day). Simply leaving alsamixer open between resets doesn't seem to work to correct the silence.
I'd like to simplify the process and either add a desktop icon or ideally a wbar icon to launch alsamixer without first launching terminal and typing alsamixer command...
It seems like a trivial step but I have to do this many times per day
, so anything to reduce the annoyance level is nice. I'm trying to avoid giving up on using these Logitech Z-5 USB speakers as I like them and don't want to spend $ on another set.
I tried the method I used to set up other shortcuts on wbar but it doesn't launch; ie ..using "alsamixer" as the command to open as I would in terminal. This worked for Chrome Beta, Iceweasel, VLC, etc...
What am I doing wrong?
