I am running chrome in kiosk mode on Ubuntu 12.04 with headphones in.

When i reboot the volume is setting itself to 50% is there a script i could run maybe in startup applications that sets to volume to 100%. Or someway of always forcing it to be 100% volume.

add any of this command in your startup script (like /etc/rc.local)

/usr/bin/pactl set-sink-volume 0 100%


/usr/bin/amixer -D pulse sset Master 100%
