    Unhappy cmus -- no volume control anymore

    Hello,

    In Ubuntu 8.10 I can't control the volume in cmus anymore. Pressing +/- has no effect, nor does ":vol +10%" and the like. The current volume is not shown at all in the status bar. There is sound, but it's volume can't be controlled from within cmus.

    Any idea what could be the reason? Everything worked perfectly in Hardy and cmus is still the same version.

    Thanks,
    Ludwig.

    I am also having the same problem. I've Google'd around but found nothing.

    Volume control does not work, and neither does pause. When I pause a track with c or layer-pause I can't unpause it again.

    Any ideas?

    I managed to recover my volume control by removing Pulseaudio, following Nullrend's instructions here:
    http://ubuntu-ky.ubuntuforums.org/sh....php?t=1313253

    Returning the system to ALSA also removed a nasty, crackling effect that Pulseaudio's implementation seemed to cause.

    Seems to have been a problem for a while:

    I couldn't find a better solution than removing Pulseaudio. Hope it works for you.

    in case someone still strugling with this:

    if your volume options are missing you may need to configure them in the config "tab"
    1. press 7 (config "tab")
    2. browse down to"softvol", set value to true
    3. one line down set "softvol_state" to "100 100" (don't use a comma, just space)

    good luck
