Question Increase audio volume in Jaunty


Hi,

I use Jaunty on my Acer Aspire 4315 notebook computer and it's audio output volume is not enough. Too quiet.

Can you please guide me with the necessary configuration?

My experience with laptops is that generally, they don't get very loud. However, that only dances around your question.

I'm not sure what your graphical environment is like and whether or not you have graphical volume controls available, but if you are using ALSA, you should be able to open a terminal and run the alasmixer command and adjust the volume. I'm sure there is an easier way to do it in your particular environment, but I'm not familiar with what Jaunty installs.

Yes, I have graphical controls. The maximum audio output provided by these controllers is not enough. I need a some kind of hack/ edit of configuration files so I can increase the maximum level allowed by these controls.

Talking For playing audio or files use smplayer...

Well for system volume u can increase the Master and PCM volume by typing cmd on terminal-

$alsamixer

it opens alsamixer & u can set max volume with the help of keyboard controls.

for playing audio & video files, Get smplayer by typing following on terminal-

$ sudo apt-get install smplayer

If you already install SMPlayer, you can increase the volume. Just click preferences button and then you can configure it. On Preferences window, just go to General | Audio tab. Check “Use software volume control” and set your maximum amplification.

It really works..
