The other day my audio stopped working. When I opened up the sound manager built in UI none of my devices showed up. However, when I use the command line, I can see all of my devices. I opened up alsa in the command line and was able to change the volume of my devices. Currently the volume bar is locked at 0 volume.
Using alsa-mixer, I am able to pass sound from my screen's 3.5mm output jack into my computer's line-in, but my master volume control has no influence over the sound coming in. I was wondering if their is a work around to enable the line-in volume to match the master volume.
I recently just upgraded my computer, new motherboard and cpu, and chose to also upgrade from windows 7 to 8.1. However, since my upgrade my audio volume has been extremely low to the point where even when turned all the way up, the audio isn't that loud.
Heres a screenshot that ilustrates the problem: http://peecee.dk/upload/view/443683 .
I have a small problem which really annoys me.
If I watch a movie or listen to a song and change the volume in the current program then the volume remains changed even after I've closed the media program (it doesn't seem to matter which program I use). I did a little experiment by having alsamixer open while changing the volume in VLC and the master volume is changed.
I'm currently writing a program that will run multiple commands (in one line) in the CLI using C.
The first command that I need to run is sudo -s. So I run this command alone to test if the program is running, but the program hangs while running this command. I wanted to know if the problem is the program or the command, so I run ls.
I want to use xbindkeys to set a key combination to increase/decrease the volume, but to do that I need a command to run to change the volume, without having to click the volume icon and change it with the mouse. How can I do this?
Does anyone know how to make all the audio streams update at once? At the moment, if I update the main volume control it will not update everything. ie. there is a separate stream for Chrome, VLC, or any other program with volume. I need to update these on a per-program basis. Is there a way to control all programs at once?
