Google Talk changes KMix mic gain all by itself!


Why does, or how can, the Google Talk plugin automatically change the gain of my USB mic? Sometimes, it sets the gain so low people can't hear me; sometimes it maxes out the gain!

thanks

Thank you very much!

Also, do you know how I force my USB microphone to have a fixed gain value so that it keeps this value even after I unplug it in re-plug it back in?
thanks again

My setup is in kmix. I can't find my mic gain/volume settings in alsamixer.

Also, I think you mean "alsactl store" (not "alsactl -store").

thanks

Thanks, but setting the volume, storing it with "alsactl store" doesn't work because I can only run "alsactl" as root and I would like the volume setting stored as my user. thanks

Yeah, I noticed that after rebooting my settings were indeed stored. Thanks & Happy Easter!
