Using GUI gnome-volume-control:

                             Sound Preferences

Output Volume: [--------------+      ]
                  Unamplified 100%

the volume can be adjusted at will. When using the keyboard volume-up and volume-down function keys the volume may be lowered at will but raising the volume is limited to the "Unamplified 100%" level.

Is there a way around this limitation?

Linux road 2.6.32-28-generic #55-Ubuntu SMP Mon Jan 10 21:21:01 UTC 2011 i686 GNU/Linux


Currently, I don't think there is any way around this.

It seems like the integration between the pulseaudio and gnome-media volume settings is still problematic. See for example:

Seems like the only way to fix this is for someone to write a patch for gnome-media's gnome-volume-control.


This problems does not occur in Ubuntu 11.10 Linux road 3.0.0-13-generic #22-Ubuntu SMP
