I was wondering if there is a simple way to automatically unmute alsa sound output on system startup. Maybe there's a comandline utility which sets up the volume? I'm fed up with having to do this myself with gnome mixer everytime I reboot my computer.
get your settings where you want them, and run "alsactl store"
you can also have "alsactl store" run at shutdown, but you have to run it once....
on startup, just run "aslactl restore"
Load your sound modules if you have to.
Then type :
amixer set Master unmute amixer set PCM unmute alsamixer (set your volume) alsactl store echo "alsactl restore" >> /etc/rc.local
