    alsamixer not saving configuration

    Hi

    Since doing a fresh install of 16.04, the alsa will not save the configuration. In addition there are 5 (so far) rc.d files in /etc. Like rc0.d, rc1.d, rc2.d for instance. Found out that these are normal. However, everytime I log out or reboot, I have to change alsamixer back as it keeps muting the speakers. I do not have /etc/rc.d

    I have run
    Code:
    sudo alsactl store
    a few times. Still doesn't save.

    Can I copy one of the rc files to rc.d? Or do I need to create a new rc.d file? Any help would be great!

    Re: alsamixer not saving configuration

    Hi mickee384 I have always used this command.
    Code:
    sudo alsactl store 0
    If that doesn't work, open this file for editing:
    Code:
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/pulse/default.pa

    Scroll down to this line: and comment it out
    Code:
    Code:
    load-module module-device-restore
    So now it would look like this
    Code:
    #load-module module-device-restore
    Logging out and back in...or even some case's a reboot
    Regards

    Thanks! I will try this and report back. Is the rc.d file created at every reboot? I am concerned as I do not have that, just rc0.d thru rc5.d .

    I believe that any thing in /etc gets put here by the initial install of the package so No i would not think that it gets a new one from a reboot.

    so I cannot recreate rc.d then. It's a required file, no?

    Re: alsamixer not saving configuration

    You know I do not have a definitive answer here but I think it is a part of the new systemd that was introduced with 15.10.
    One question did you delete any of those rc.d...if you did not then everything should be fine.
    But should not have anything to do with why Alsa is not keeping your preferences.

    No I didn't delete any rc.ds. That said, I don't have the /etc/rc.d

    After these were run, still sound starts muted. Sigh. Thanks for your help. I will keep at it till I figure it out.

    still not working. When I did the force reload - it reloaded, no errors, but muted the speaker control (which is the only one that actually produces sound) again...sigh.
