Running Ubuntu 13.10 and each time I login, my volume control is reset to 100%. Pulseaudio never saves its state.
I can run
pacmd set-sink-volume 0 26000 on the cmd line to set it back to 40%, but it doesn't save state.
I tried adding it to ".profile" in my home directory, but that runs the command before Pulseaudio sets the volume, so it has no effect.
Any ideas on how to fix this?
