I just installed gnome-alsa, because my mic didn't work with pulseaudio. But I can't seem to find a way to change the volume of a specific program, like you can in Windows. I can only change the master volume. BTW, I'm running Ubuntu 12.10 64bit.


Use pavucontrol Install pavucontrol. It allows you to adjust volume of specific applications.

  • My problem is just that the sound my headset works with Pulseaudio but not the mic. Do you know if there's a way to do it with Alsa? – ShotTard Jan 20 '13 at 15:27
