Kmix without pulseaudio

21. Dezember 2014 oremilac Linux

This little HowTo

is for those who want to work with kmix and alsamixer in openSUSE >= 11.4 and not with pulseaudio, installed automatically while setup on some machines.
If you don’t want that, ‚cause you want to see your kmixer like in openSUSE <= 11.3, use this HowTo to solve these circumstances.

„Users of KMix will notice that most of their hardware sound controls are no longer shown in the default (alsasound-based) interface. To get access to these controls, close KMix (use right-click / quit) and restart it by running KMIX_PULSEAUDIO_DISABLE=1 kmix in a console terminal. To make this change permanent, add export KMIX_PULSEAUDIO_DISABLE=1 to your ~/.bashrc file. “

in openSUSE do the following:

  • If you’re runnin‘ kmix at the moment, close it, and


  • Edit /home/user/.xinitrc


# Add your own lines here...

enter or insert below

# fix kmixer


  • close your KDE eg. logout your KDE session and sign up again to the system. Your kmix should now show you its old skin like you know it before.
