Since I couldn't find a way to do this, I wrote my own script. I set it to run from /etc/rc.local (as local user) in the background so it would run when the computer is restarted. The script checks if the headphones are connected or not (run "amixer -c 0 contents" once headphones are connected and once not and find under which numid the headphones are). If ...

This answer contains a small procedure to find the ...

I remember having the exact same problem on my netbook when I was on the train. I as organising some party music, and was jumping through the music with my headphones in. Then someone asks me to turn down my music, and I look rather bemused at them, not realising that I was sharing my music with the rest of the train! The only solution I found was to use ...
