https://bbs.archlinux.org – Sometimes I'll be listening to a song at 100% volume, and it is not as loud as I would like it to be. I can run pavucontrol and pull the slider to make the output above 100%, but I prefer the command line and am looking for a way to do this from there. When I set the sound above 100, amixer get Master outputs that it is indeed above 100%, but if I try to set increase it using amixer set Master 5%+, it will not go above above 100, and it will go back down to 100 if it was over 100. I have also tried pamixer and pulseaudio_ctl. Is there a console based program for doing this, or do I have t (HowTos)
