Is it possible to set the default sound level more than 100% ?Every time after booting i have to manually increase the sound level from the sound settings which is a bit irritating. I am using Ubuntu 13.04.
Using the following command in terminal, you can set sound level as you wish:
pactl -- set-sink-volume 0 150%
In this case we have set the volume of the sink #0 to 150%.
Now, if you want to set this setting as default at startup, add the above command in
/etc/rc.local file. You can use
sudo -H gedit /etc/rc.local to open an edit this file:
#!/bin/sh -e # # rc.local # # This script is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel. # Make sure that the script will "exit 0" on success or any other # value on error. # # In order to enable or disable this script just change the execution # bits. # # By default this script does nothing. pactl -- set-sink-volume 0 150% exit 0
pactl list short sinks

To increase volume:
pactl set-sink-volume SymbolicNameHere value%
