hen I was running 9.04, I had separate controls for my headphones (front jack) and speakers (rear jack). I upgraded to 9.10 and the separate controls were gone. I just upgraded (clean install) o 11.04 and again, only one "slider" for audio. any thoughts?

This is probably because you are now managing your audio through the PulseAudio server, instead of ALSA. I have the same issues myself, and I haven't figured out how to fix it, but in the meantime I open up a command line terminal and use the alsamixer program to control the volume. You can try it and see if that works for you too :)

The controls have changed a little. Now you can:
1) Click at the sound icon at panel and choose "Sound Settings",

2) Go to "Output" tab and select the connector you want to change the volume:

Enjoy ;-)
