Description Alexandre 2012-08-11 00:06:53 UTC

Comment 1 Alexandre Rostovtsev (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-08-11 01:22:28 UTC
I believe that pulseaudio itself is responsible for saving its sound levels in config files under ~/.pulse/

Reassigning the bug to pulseaudio maintainers.
Comment 2 Alexandre 2012-08-11 02:51:51 UTC
Just updating: the volume level is also not stored on gdm, but if I change the level on gdm when I login that level is keeped for my user.
Comment 3 Alexandre 2012-08-26 20:26:51 UTC
Seems solved with media-sound/pulseaudio-2.1-r1. :)

> Seems solved with media-sound/pulseaudio-2.1-r1. :)

all -r1 does is moves udev rules where they belong while udev has patches to work on both locations, so -r1 changes absolutely nothing

since the statement of -r1 solving everything came from the reporter, we'll have to assume the problem was local to begin with since the problem disappeared due to no reason at all
Comment 5 Alexandre 2012-08-27 21:33:07 UTC
No, not solved!
I was mistaken. It worked for a day and now the issue is back. :/

Sorry for the wrong 'solved' report.

I cannot reproduce with gnome 3.8 and pulseaudio 4
