I have a script to do this


It checks for a lot of things.  basically download the raw file, then:

chmod +x amixer-toggle

sudo cp amixer-toggle /usr/bin

Change the keybinding for XF86AudioMute defined in



This script also will work if you have pulseaudio installed using the
pulseaudio command line tools

I have a few other scripts as well if you need
