Configure
Right-click on the speaker icon on the panel:
Full window - opens all the volume and audio settings
Config window - configure app and select soundcard, it has three tabs
Main - graphic and volume control settings
Tray - setting for panel icon and slider
Hardware - pick soundcard, hw:0 means use soundcard 0 (as defined by ALSA), also set sliders to be active

Retrovol not showing
Sometimes when Retrovol won't start (and therefore doesn't show) is because it is not configured correctly.

The configuration file is located at ~/.retrovolrc, can be edited as text. (.<name> files are 'hidden', left-clicking on the eye in the ROX filer window will show these files.)

Commands
retrovol -v - returns version
retrovol -h - returns help
