    Controlling Rear Speaker Volume


    Is there any way at all I can control the volume of my rear speakers? When I increase/decrease/mute volume (in Kmix, Xmms, Xine etc.) only the front speakers are adjusted, the sub woofer and rear speakers are unaffected.

    I’m guessing that there is some way to ‘link’ the front & rear speaker control?

    SBLive using emu10k on SuSE 8.2 (KDE 3.2)
    Thanks in advince for any help

    There should be a file /etc/emu10k1.conf or /etc/emu10k1/emu10k1.conf that you have to specify to use rear/4.1 speakers. I'm a little rusty on emu10k1 b/c ALSA is so much nicer.
