Interesting... that's supposed to be pulseaudio's job these days (iirc), unless...

1. Have you disabled pulseaudio ?

2. Are you sure you're using kmix?  f23 kde uses a newer plasma-pa sound applet, and kmix is no longer installed by default.
Comment 2 dag 2015-12-23 11:02:44 EST
1. No, using pulseaudio. But in system mode as this computer has multiple logins (X-servers) and everybody needs to be able to cotrol the volume of everything.

2. And yes. I am using kmix as the plasma-pa is not felxible enough for controlling different sound sources.
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2015-12-23 11:06:08 EST
OK, the "running pulseaudio in system mode" is probably at issue here.

If kmix detects pulseaudio is in use, then it doesn't try to save volumes.  
and, if pulseaudio is running in system mode, then it probably cannot handle per-user volume preferences.

Not sure what can be done about that.
Comment 4 dag 2015-12-23 11:12:04 EST
For me it would be enough if it didn't turn up the volume to full at start.. Now there is a boom everytime I log in...
Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2015-12-23 11:14:27 EST
Is kmix's "Restore Volumes on login" option enabled?

I thought that feature is a non-functional when pulseaudio is used, so kmix should not be changing volumes at all in that case

Either way, whatever that option is set at, try toggling it the other way, just in case that may help here.
Comment 6 dag 2015-12-23 11:19:10 EST
That feature doesn't seem to exist any more. At least I cannot find it.
And BTW this setup worked perfectly with KDE/Plasma 4.x
Comment 7 dag 2015-12-23 11:21:00 EST
Sorry. Found it! It was on, now turned it off.Lets see what happens
Comment 8 dag 2015-12-23 11:24:59 EST
Turning it off seems to have worked. Now the volume stays the same. Seems like kmix had a strange idea of what the volume was when leaving the session...
