Is there a way to get per-application volume control similar to Windows 7? I am looking for a way to do this in both Lubuntu and Kubuntu.

you can install gnome on Lubuntu/Kubuntu as well :) – Taher Elhouderi Jan 20 '13 at 20:44
But then why would I use them? :) I use them for the environment. – ChrisN Jan 20 '13 at 20:50


The Kubuntu/KDE (KDE 4.8 or later) default mixer is supporting per-application volume control with the applications that support the MPRIS2.
