I am using Ubuntu 12.04 in combination with Awesome window manager. Most of the stuff ubuntu provides I don't use.
I adjust my audio volume through scripts with
amixer or manually with
alsamixer. However after a reboot, my audio is muted and the only way to unmute it is through the
gnome-control-center sound GUI.
I prefer terminal so I would like to know how I can unmute my audio without having to open up a GUI. Also, should I maybe remove pulseaudio, since I always use alsamixer anyways?
