Pebkac - _p_roblem _e_xists _b_etween _k_eyboard _a_nd _c_omputer.  ;-)

It means that you don't know, don't understand, or both, what you are
doing. Which can be dangerous to your installation. You are using what is
called the 'shotgun' method. What does that mean? Think about using a
shotgun to try to kill a single housefly buzzing around your living room.

I can understand you frustrations. Truly.

And Gnome-Volume-Control, as you have been told by several people, has
absolutely nothing to do with audio volume. What does that mean? that you
are trying to solve your problem but twiddling with the wrong package.

From what you are describing you are looking at a KDE GUI audio mixer
application. And that I can not help you with because I do not use KDE.
