After booting my computer running Ubuntu 13.10, the volume always starts at around 30%. This happens with the default volume program and pulse audio. How can I fix this?


Try to run the following command in a terminal:
sudo alsactl store 0

Try also this one, a recent pc may have 2 sound devices :

sudo alsactl store 1

  • Thanks for the response. Unfortunately I started getting a ton of errors and just decided to re-install the OS – kookman98 Jun 14 '14 at 18:20
