[ubuntu] No Low Volumes

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I recently installed a clean copy of 12.04. So far everything has worked reasonably well, but I have a problem with the volume. Unless I have the volume at 1/4, or above I don't get any sound. Above that the sound control is quite precise, but If I want the volume to be any lower (which I often do), I have to adjust the volume on the individual application I am using. At one quarter the sound comes in relatively loud, all at once. This makes it thoroughly frustrating to adjust volume on a whim. (Hardware)
