[STICKY] Fix sound and volume control on Acer/Asus netbook

Postby Yorko » Mon Mar 16, 2015 2:41 pm

Hello,

I had a problem on my netbook Acer Aspire One 722 with no sound and no volume control by keyboard shortcut (Fn + Vol Up / Fn + Vol Down / Fn + Mute). The problem was only on Zorin OS Lite version.

If you don't have a sound and frontend volume control, try this in terminal:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install sox libsox-fmt-all faac flac paman


Okey, we have a volume control on desktop but we still can't change volume by fn keys. Let's fix this.
1. Open the file:
Code: Select all
leafpad ~/.config/openbox/lubuntu-rc.xml

2. Find "Keybinding for Volume management" section.
3. Copy and paste this:
Code: Select all
<keybind key="XF86AudioRaiseVolume">
<action name="Execute">
<command>amixer -q -D pulse sset Master 3%+ unmute</command>
</action>
</keybind>
<keybind key="XF86AudioLowerVolume">
<action name="Execute">
<command>amixer -q -D pulse sset Master 3%- unmute</command>
</action>
</keybind>
<keybind key="XF86AudioMute">
<action name="Execute">
<command>amixer -q -D pulse sset Master toggle</command>
</action>
</keybind>

4. Save file.
5. Run in terminal:
Code: Select all
openbox --reconfigure


That's all ;]
