When using the volume buttons (+, -, mute) they are reacting weirdly. When I press the key for increasing the volume a bit, it'll go to the maximum automatically and when I decrease the volume, it'll automatically go to 0.

Volume control with the mouse works fine.

The buttons are working and get recognized:

Checked with keyboard system settings tool: they get recognized by the tool both from the laptop directly as well as from my USB keyboard.

Who can help?


It is similar to bug

Open terminal and run the commands:

 gsettings reset org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.media-keys volume-up
 gsettings reset org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.media-keys volume-down
 gsettings reset org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.media-keys volume-mute

hope it work .
