I installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and the volume is too low for me. Even when I adjust to 100% volume, I can only hear a little from music.

I know that I can open the sound control and adjust to 150% volume, but If I want to use the mouse to adjust the sound icon on the status bar, I cannot adjust to 150%.

So, is there any way to increase the default volume?

  • What is the sound coming out of? Built-in speakers(if on a laptop), powered, or unpowered speakers connected to you PC? Aug 17 '14 at 5:43
  • yeah, build-in speakers, I'm using my laptop samsung series5.

I do not know which settings you see in the sound controls, but to be sure:

Take a look at the tabs "Playback" and "Output Devices" of pavucontrol.
It could be that "Playback" shows something like you had before, but "Output Devices" was not changeable from there, and maybe set to a low value.
