    Re: Volume acting weird

    I had same problem. I fixed it by editing
    /usr/share/pulseaudio/alsa-mixer/paths/analog-output.conf

    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.

    So reinstalling pulseaudio might help?

    Would it be better to try reinstalling pulseaudio and then if that doesn't work then edit the analog-output.conf?

    How would I reinstall it?

    Thanks for the reply.

    Yes. It makes sense to try to reinstall first.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge pulseaudio
    sudo apt-get install pulseaudio
    Reboot after this

    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.

    I am a newbie.

    How would I know which packages this'll potentially conflict with?

    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.

    By doing
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install packagenamehere
    ? Just making sure.

    Thanks for the help also.

    /Edit

    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.

    Yes that is how to install from terminal.

    Run this in a terminal and post results

    Code:
       aplay -l
    And
    Code:
     lsmod
