Welcome to the Linux Foundation Forum!



I'm currently using Ubuntu 9.04 and I believe that ALSA is the sound server. There is an irritating piece in that, I have to turn the sound all the way up from the command line utility and then adjust the volume from either the applet or the buttons on my laptop, which I don't think work right.

Is it possible to turn the sound way down in ALSA and still hear sound without have to turn up ALSA first?

    i would look in to ditching the ALSA drivers and installing the OSS drivers for sound there much better and seem to work better with newer sound cards i use them and now have no sound problems:laugh:
