Linux and Java sound - map mixers to devices

Hi,

I have a question regarding Java Sound API and Linux. I need to query a list of sound devices and let the user choose one of them for further audio operations. This works using the
AudioSystem.getMixerInfo()
call. However, the names of the mixers are not very useful. I find the following mixers:
Intel [plughw:0,0], version 1.0.23
Intel [plughw:0,2], version 1.0.23
Is there a way to get better names, similar to what Gnone or KDE sound panels display?

When I run the same code under Windows, the output is much better.
