How to install alsa-utils

I’ve used alsa-utils (specifically alsamixer) with LibreELEC with some success, and would like to try it with OSMC / Kodi v19 test builds on my Vero 4K+, for L / R balance adjustments (my 2 channel amp lacks a balance adjustment). It’s available thru the Kodi repo on LE, but I think I’ll need some command-line sorcery with OSMC.

What commands do I need to install it?
To run it? - (probably alsamixer, ?)
To make any adjustments stick thru a re-boot / re-start?

Thank you very much in advance :slight_smile:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install alsa-utils

Making settings stick is more difficult. Saving the ALSA state on exit doesn’t happen automatically. You may need some lines in /etc/rc.local to set the values. Search for man amixer.

Thank you, grahamh, for the assist. I’ll research the “making changes stick” issue…
