Hi,
I use MPD server and want to enable software volume control in ALSA:
In MUSIC PLAYER > ALSA CONFIGURATION > OPTIONS, I input the option mixer_type <software>, as sugested in Snakeoil manuals, but system returns an error, asking for ".
I know mdp.conf file asks for mixer_type "software" syntax, but when I input this in OPTIONS field the mpd.conf doesn't show the "", show only mixer_type software.
What to write in OPTIONS to enable software volume control?

Been a while since I used that. What did yuu type in exactly? Are you saying the following doesn't work?
 
Code:
mixer_type "software"

Yes. That was the code I entered in OPTIONS.
But what is saved in Mpd.conf is mixer_type software, without the "".
Thanks for this nice free OS And for your attention.

It looks its a problem when converting text from web app input box to the .conf file.
The "" disapear.
I've tried to edit mpd.conf file, but when I restart the MPD server, it overwrites the file with wrong syntax.
