During the process I opened Pulse Mixer paneel and a second one, which I thought was ALSA mixer (and which I can't find anymore). I tried some stuff I don't remember exactly (among them sudo alsactl init ), closed everything, rebooted. Situation now is:
1. XFCE4-mixer (which was likely the program I confused with ALSA mixer) doesn't work anymore. dmesg shows several messages like

[4537.581479] xfce4-mixer: segfault at 28 ip 00007f268662b99d sp 00007fff88510080 error 4 in libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0.2400.22[7f2686583000+42c000]
2. ALSA Mixer started from terminal works. Volume adjustment works but I can't hear anything.
2. Pulse shows sound output, reacts to ALSA mixer changes but I still can't hear anything.
Should I try getting XFCE4-mixer to work or should I give up on it and concentrate on the other tools? Is XFCE4-mixer disabling my sound output? Can I somehow get the fixes made for Debian/Ubuntu(Mint or can I deinstall it?
This guy http://forums.solydxk.com/viewtopic.php ... ixer#p5230 seems to have the same problem. But on my system I can switch ALSA mixer in terminal from [Pulse] to my sound devices (analog and hdmi). I've read http://forums.solydxk.com/viewtopic.php?f=43&t=1537 too but I don't understand much of it. Why purge Pulse if XFCE mixer crashes?
