    Fedora 28 sound very low although slider is at 100%

    System (uname -api): Linux womble 4.17.11-200.fc28.x86_64 #1 SMP Mon Jul 30 15:21:09 UTC 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    I keep my system updated regularly, but only recently upgraded from 27 to 28.

    Sound is very low - I can hardly hear system alerts, even though the slider in Settings/Sound shows full volume.

    Under 27 and I thought under 28, the slidebar had a tick halfway along to indicate 100% but allowed the slider to travel further to the right to increase volume even more.

    I would like to get my volume back to where it was under 27. Is there a software fix for my problem?

    Many thanks for any help.

    There are two places to control the volume - the input (system alerts) and the output (master) volume.

    Check the properties of pavucontrol and expand it to show you all available sliders and move them all to maximum, or install something simple like aumix.

    I installed pavucontrol and it has the features I need. My sound level is now where I want it. Thanks very much for the help.
