Hello, I recently installed Fedora 23, love it! Problem is: my keyboard has media keys, but when I use the Vol+ or Vol- keys they increase or decrease the volume by 6%! That's too much! Once too loud, once too quiet. Gotta use the mouse. I already tried amixer set Master 2%+, but when I press the media key with this command, the sound is just off. Same for amixer set Master 2%-. I also tried amixer sset Master 2%+. I also searched man amixer for answers and tried a couple comments, still the same result.
You don't have to dedicate your life to this, I can live with that but if you know the answer please help!
Excuse my (maybe) bad English.

Assuming youy are using gnome, just install this extension: Volume Mixer

didn't work, now the scrolling steps in the status bar are 6% as well, but thanks for the extension

The 6% is the default. You must change it in the extension configuration: Installed Extensions
