Amaork volume control?
 
I am trying to get Amarok set up to play my music collection. I have it
mostly working the way I want, but I am more used to command line
interfaces that GUI's and sometimes I can't figure out where things are
"hidden" in a GUI. This turns out to be one of the cases.

Where is the volume control?

Music played by hovering over a MP3 file on the desktop is of a decent
level, but when I play the same file using Amarok, the volume is way to
low. I see that if I hover over the round button on the top left, it shows
me the volume setting. but pushing it just pauses the music. What am I
doing wrong?

Click and move your mouse to the right around the outer circle.

Weird, I have never seen this behavior before. Is this compliant with any
known UI standard?

It's compliant with the Amarok UI standard. :)

When one person suffers from a delusion it is insanity. When many
people suffer from a delusion it is called religion.
