Re: Sound Volume in Gnome

Oh okay. I did find a pretty good workaround, but your solution sounds good also.
Whichever you prefer I guess. My solution is in my Gnome Startup Programs I put gmix -i
as one of the programs. gmix is the gnome audio mixer program, but when called with the
-i option it just initializes the mixer and restores the users previous settings. This
is a great solution exept for the fact that you have to do it for each user and if you
play sounds from outside gnome before you play sounds in gnome, you'll get really loud
volumes again. Perhaps both of our solutions together would be the best? Thanks. -Jeff
