[SOLVED] How to save ALSA settings?

Postby Althorion » Sun Dec 29, 2013 11:17 pm

Every time I reboot my computer, I have to set my ALSA settings again — set default sound card and change output. I have tried using sudo alsactl store, but it didn’t work. What can I do to make Mint remember my sound settings?

you should also run

Code: Select all

sudo alsactl restore
at each boot. probably it's best to add it to your startup programs.

You probably meant sudo alsactl restore (alsa is just a deamon). Thanks, now it works and I should have remembered that. Oh well, on my defence, I haven’t used a multi-soundcard PC for quite a while.

If anyone would have the same problem, I would advise you to change your sudoers file to enable running that command without typing password, just for your convenience.

yeah, sorry, typed fast without checking. I'm happy that you figured it out ;)
