I had same problem. I fixed it by editing
I changed all "merge" to "ignore".
After that reboot, run alsamixer and set all volumes, you've set to "ignore" to 100%. Then volume will be managed by PCM.
Volume control will work in a right way.
Also remove and install pulseaudio helps without ediding this file in 12.04.
Yes. It makes sense to try to reinstall first.
Reboot after thisCode:sudo apt-get purge pulseaudio sudo apt-get install pulseaudio
But it may cause some problems for a newbie. There are some packages which depend on pulseaudio. You will have to install them again too.
When you will remove pulseaudio, you will get a list of packages to be deleted. Save this list. and when you install pulseaudio install these packages again.
? Just making sure.Code:sudo apt-get install packagenamehere
Thanks for the help also.
I reinstalled pulseaudio and then reinstalled the other packages again as you suggested and the issue kept happening. (Rebooted after reinstalling. So then I tried reinstalling the libasound2 as you suggested and it still persists.
/Edit 2 I even tried editing the .conf file as you suggested and it's still having the same issue.
