I'm trying to be control the volume of my system via the command line. 
If I can, then I can know what commands to set up to work with my remote 

It seems the command I want to use is "amixer". So I looked at the man 
page for it:

And tried:

amixer -c 0 sset PCM=+10

But it came back with:

Specify what you want to set...

Huh. I thought I did. I thought the PCM mixer was the one responsible 
for master folume. I thought the syntax was okay.

Where did I go wrong?
