Running Ubuntu 12.04 I have setup xmonad as described here: https://github.com/davidbrewer/xmonad-ubuntu-conf

My problem analogous to : http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1905657

  1. Mute using keyboard button, volume is muted in panel and pavucontrol.
  2. Unmute using keyboard button, volume is unmuted in panel, but still muted in pavucontrol.
  3. When I unmute in pavucontrol, it is unmuted.

Now here is one thing I observed. When I do: sudo apt-get install alsa*, it says:
