Hey everyone,

Im running Ubuntu 8.10 at the moment as well as Vista but this pertains to the former...

In Ubuntu, the volume is tuned up fully yet is only about a quarter of the top volume i can achieve in Vista... I have noticed that this is a common problem. I checked all settings and sliders and everything is on full volume and still nothing. also, in the last quarter of the volume range it quickly goes from 40%ish to 100% in a very small range thus making the other 75% available al but muted... Not too much of a problem but id like to find a way to boost the top end.

Any information would be of great help!

Thanks a lot in advance!

Linux has several sound controls. I'm not a Gnomee but if you open the gnome mixer and check the position of the PCM slider. PCM control a lot of the system volume. If your system has HD sound you will have a front slider that may need to be adjusted. HTH
