View Full Version : [lubuntu] How do you set different volumes for different applications in ALSA?

As title thread explains, I can't figure this out for the life of me. :confused:

I figured I'd ask for help since I've been trying to do this for about 6 months now, maybe more.

in mplayer-gnome you can enable software volume control. Other apps you can't do per-app volumen control.
if you really need to fix this, please install pulseaudio

Under Sound Settings> Applications, you can find various apps that have their own sound control, and can be adjusted from there

Yea I'm trying to do this because of Skype honestly, one of the few things I enjoyed about PulseAudio was that you could control the volume of certain apps through it regardless of built in settings or not. This is not found in ALSA, unfortunately I'd much rather run the lighter ALSA at this point than PulseAudio, but hey who knows if I really can't find a solution to this I might just switch to PulseAudio again...I do have a dual core I suppose. :|
