View Full Version : [xubuntu] unable to increase sound beyond 100%
May 25th, 2011, 10:03 AM
In ubuntu, I'm able to increase my sound level to of the sound to beyond 100%. In xubuntu, I'm not able to do this. Is there any solution for me ? Even if I need to install it, I would like to do this now.

is the sound actually louder in ubuntu? obviously, your card isnt really going above 100%, but i suspect ubuntu is compressing your sound to increase the perceived loudness. there must be more applications than just the default ubuntu volume control that can do this. have you tried some cli programs, or the generic pulse audio controllers?

- ubuntu and xubuntu sound is the same level - tried - livecd to verify.
In ubuntu , in the control panel area for the sound area, it's possible to go beyon that 100%, and then slide the slider for higher sound level
For clarity - I want the percieved higher sound.

If you use VLC you should (I always can, on more than one machine) be able to increase the sound way beyond 100%.

I need to do it globally. Is there anyway - I can use JUST the audio applet ? I don't want to end up requiring the download of the entire gnome experience for this one little feature
