Volume control for Ubuntu 10.04

I updated to Ubuntu 10.04 this week, and now I’m listening to Nightwish, I suddenly felt the need to get the volume up. My mouse started on it’s way to the place the volume control-applet used to be, but it seemed to have disappeared. Luckily, this problem too is easy to fix: start the program “gnome-volume-control-applet” by pressing alt  + f2. If that works, you might want to go to “System” > “Preferences” > “Startup applications”, and see if volume control is there and checked. If it’s not there, you can add it, and if it’s there and it’s not checked… well, then check it.

Problem easily fixed. Nightwish: you just started to sound a lot louder. :)

    Easy indeed :) . I still have some problems with volume: with the wrong volume settings the sound is real crappy and distorted. So I just keep tinkering with the sliders the get the least-crappy setting. Still annoying, though… Does that sound familiar?

    No sir, no experience in crappy sounds coming from my machine.
