After a recent update, when I now log in to my system, my audio volume control suddenly goes to 100% and nearly deafens me. This appears to be something to do with (I guess)
systemd changing the volume when I log in, but I do not know where to start looking to configure this.
I am happy for the volume to be set when I log in, I just want it set to 20% and not 100%.
Previously I was using
alsactl for this, and even now running
alsactl restore sets the volume back to my preferred 20%. So something is changing the volume when I log in, but it's not
I am running a pretty plain Arch Linux install, with LightDM as display manager and AwesomeWM window manager. No other desktop environment to speak of.
There's nothing in
~/.config/systemd/ aside from loading an SSH agent, so I'm not quite sure where to start looking.
Does anyone know how to change the volume levels that
systemd sets when you log in?
