Fix Low Volume Issues in Ubuntu
My friend wanted to try Ubuntu on his Acer Laptop.I installed Ubuntu(Dual boot with Windows XP) on his laptop and I installed and configured all the essential codecs and software required to play movies and music.
I tried playing some movies and music ,but I could barely hear anything in spite of tinkering with the audio settings and moving the volume bar to the maximum.
The volume and quality of sound was excellent when I played the same movies and music in Windows.So there was nothing wrong with the Sound card or the Speakers.
So there was something definitely wrong with Ubuntu’s Audio Support.I have mentioned problem in this Article.
Now I found solution to fix this problem.It involves increasing the volume from the terminal.
Using the arrow keys the increase the volume bars of the different options to the maximum.
Press ESC to exit
Save your settings with this command
Restart the computer
You can now enjoy your movies and music in Ubuntu without any problem.
