Hi everyone,


A little help:

I'm running Ubuntu Natty and I would like to find a way to lock the Volume slider or lock the system volume on a certain percentage.
To prevent myself of blast my speakers with :guitar:



any suggestion is welcome


thanks in advance

Not quite what you want, perhaps, but if you use alsamixer in terminal (or maybe gnome-alsamixer with its GUI, which I've never used), you can reduce the PCM level to stop output being too high in the main volume channel. You can still reset it higher if you want or need to with the same mixer apps, but in normal use the volume control will be limited to a max as set by the PCM level.

Thanks for the reply. What I want actually is to "lock" the volume slider, or lock it in a level so that no one can change it eg. I put my slider on 70% and no one else (besides a root user) can change it.

Sorry, but I've no idea about doing that.
