Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I want to be able to access volume levels above 100% using the volume control buttons on my computer. The commands I want to run are as follows:

  • volume up: pactl set-sink-volume 1 +10%
  • volume down: pactl set-sink-volume 1 -10%

The keyboard shortcuts can be accessed in the settings:

keyboard shortcuts settings

How can I change the command that is run in order to increase or decrease the volume? Note that I want to use the default volume control shortcuts (as opposed to disabling the default volume controls and creating new custom shortcuts for the same buttons) and I want to avoid key remapping. Thanks for your help!
