I have an Asus UL20FT-A1 laptop whose sound at maximum is not high enough. I have to open the Sound Settings menu and go over the limitation to get a high enough level. Any idea how I can fix this?
Try the PCM settings in
alsamixer - Open terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and type
You may need to select the sound card with F6 first.
Turning up all the other controls may also help
This works 100%...
- right click on volume icon located at top right corner of screen (ubuntu 16 )
- Select sound settings
- Go to application section and raise volume up :D enjoy your high sound..
If you are using LUBUNTU you might need to try
pavucontrol in terminal. In my custom setup ubuntu core + openbox + lxdp I have
pavucontrol managing sounds.
