the current level is 4%, that is too much, it would be great if there will be a feature that enables one to set that level of change

I have implemented it, but will not put it in the GUI. If you want to change it, please quit KMix, and edit the kmixrc configuration file. In the [Global] section. add VolumePercentageStep , e.g:
This means 2.5%
This goes live with KDE4.8.
SVN commit 1246058 by esken:
Percentage of a volume change (MouseWheel, DBUS) can be configured in kmixrc (e.g. VolumePercentageStep=2.5)
M +9 -0 apps/kmix.cpp

M +1 -0 core/mixer.h

Does this bug duplicate bug 48142? Christian, could you set bug 48142 as dup of this bug?
Yes, #48142 is a dup. Thanks for the hint, Alexey.

I would propose to add volume step in kmix configuration. On my laptop default step was 25%, which is clearly too much, and when i set "VolumePercentageStep=1" the step is 3% (it's good for me).
It would be a good improvement :)
Seems not to work (anymore?) in Kmix 4.3 running on KDE 4.10.1 (ubuntu 12.10 packages)
Setting is ignored and step size is always 15%.
Seems broken for me too. VolumePercentageStep set to 4, actual step is 12% (using a mouse wheel on the kmix icon).
KDE 4.10.2 from Fedora 18 x64.
Same thing here on openSuse 12.3 with KMix 4.3 / KDE 4.10.2, except I'm getting 10% changes.
Side note: The default probably ought to be something like 2%, because with 10% there's just one step between normal and painfully loud (or very quiet), at least with my hardware.
Confirmed, the VolumePercentageStep option works only for global keyboard shortcuts, not the mouse wheel action on applet hover.
Kmix 4.3, KDE 4.10.4
I think the VolumePercentageStep is related with mouse scroll lines on system settings. So if scroll lines is set by 3 lines, and VolumePercentageStep set by 5, we get 3*5=15%. And because I don't know how to quit kmix, I do a reboot to make the settings works.
I'm using Linuxmint 15 KDE 4.10.5
Doesn't work for KDE 4.8.5 (Kubuntu 12.04)
I fixed a KMix's internal handling. There seems to be another issue outside of KMix. Please follow its progress in bug 316546. Thus I will keep this ticket closed.
Can you please add this option to kmix GUI in Plasma 5, please?
