I'm probably dense, but I can't find anything called "mixer" in the

What I have found related to sound is:

System/Preferences/Personal/Volume Control
this puts a volume ctrl on screen, no test button or such...

this puts a tabbed dialogue on screen where there are 3 tabs:
Devices: 4 test buttons of which 3 produce a garbled beep sound
Sounds: 10 test buttons, none produce any sound at all
System Beep: no test button at all

System/Administration/Soundcard detection
here is where I have to enter root password and when the window
appears there is a "sound test" play button, which produces good sound
when clicket (this is the only place with good sound). Then it saks if
I could hear the sound, which I answer yes to.

Then what???
