Volume state before mute forgotten after reboot
Last modified: 2009-06-19 09:36:22 EDT
Description of problem:
Fail to cancel mute after reboot!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. right-click the systray icon of gnome-volume-control and mark mute to enable it
2. reboot computer
3. right-click the systray icon of gnome-volume-control and un-mark mute to disable it ,it won't get applied.
PulseAudio is the one saving the sink stream status and value. Can you replicate the problem using pavucontrol instead?
I've test it just now ,use pavucontrol to replace gnome-volume-control ,and repeat "Steps to Reproduce",get the same problem.
Uh, what is this about?
You are saying the mute status of your card is stuck?
Can you please run pavucontrol and try to unmute the card there?

This is a UI problem ,i just can't unmute the card through " right-click the systray icon of gnome-volume-control and un-mark mute to disable it ",it's volume systray icon's problem.
I still don't get it.
If you try to unmute with a tool like 'pavucontrol' does it work there?
Lennart, when you mute the volume and then unmute it, it goes back to the previous value. The complaint is that this doesn't work if there is a reboot between the mute and the unmute, regardless which frontend you use.

Matthias is right , "the volume get back to previous value" is a new problem ,i notice it happend after recent updates,but the unmute problem has been there for a long time.
I'm sorry for my poor english!
Please, could you try toggling the mute state with 'pavucontrol' as requested?

I have already done this，please look at my reply above，It got the same problem，Thanks very much！
I still not sure I really get what is going on here. That said, could you please make sure it is only a reboot that triggers this problem? Or can you reproduce it it by logging out, waiting 10s, and then logging back in too?
I can confirm that just logging out and back in makes the mute checkbox become 'stuck'. Repeatedly trying to uncheck it has no effect. Surprisingly, opening the slider once without making any changes makes the mute checkbox become unstuck.
Is fixed upstream btw, wil prepare an update as soon as F11 is released.
