The alsamixergui is not what I'm looking for. It's lacking and 'not much more graphical' than the standard alsamixer invoked in Terminal.

gnome-alsamixer package is not available
gst-mixer package is not available

Fedora 19 x64, RPM Fusion repos enabled

What are you trying to accomplish? Is it actually ALSA that you need to change the mixer levels for? Will pavucontrol do what you need? (Pulse Audio volume control, more featured than the standard Gnome mixer dialog)

@jfmchivall Fiddle with ALSA without the use of terminal and config files. Change the default device, adjust levels, enable/disable outputs...

BTW, selecting a default ALSA card was probably never a feature of the gnome-alsamixer. It was handled by a separate GUI tool - Default Sound Chooser(?) (asoundconf-gtk(?)), that used to be a part of alsa-utils package

@jfmchivallpavucontrol doesn't actually control the hardware's settings, though, it's just software gains. alsamixer and alsamixergui control the actual hardware.

Searching in, I found it is in ATrpms packaged for F19, but I have never used it:
