Volume reset on KDE startup

I usually set the PCM volume to 29 using alsamixer. However, when I log into KDE the volume gets reset to 52 automatically. The volume is at the right level until I log into KDE.

I do not remember any recent change done by me which might cause this. Please help me.

Had the same here, launch kmix (if not on the systray), display mix window, then configuration, configure kmix and unclick: restore volume on startup.

run alsamixer with su powers.....unfortunately its available to normal users which is the problem.....but alsactl is a command only available to su users....if that fails try kmix if you are using KDE 04-27-2006 03:05 AM

Thanx nx5000, your solution worked lika a charm. I think I was a bit too hasty to post something which I should have tried more on. Sorry for that.

Don't be sorry, I had the same problem and it took me some days to find it.
I don't particularly like how KDE superseed system things without even telling you it can create unexpected behaviour, the integration is not perfect.
