Audio Volume High

Asked by Edward on 2011-11-23

The GnoMenu sounds are louder than other system sounds. If I don't want to be blasted, I have to turn my system volume way down which, of course, makes everything else I listen to too quiet. Is there an option to adjust the GnoMenu audio volume?

Ubuntu Lucid 10.04
Sound Theme: Default (Default by Canonical GPL)

Sorry there is no volume control for GnoMenu sounds. You can use
Audacity to lower their volume, or use another sound theme for GnoMenu.

Thanks. I had assumed that "Default by Canonical" meant it was using the Ubuntu system files.

For anyone else who happens to come along to read this, the files are located in /usr/share/gnomenu/Themes/Sound/Default as individual ogg audio files. As shaun pointed out, these can be edited in Audacity (or similar software) to have a lower volume, just replacing the existing files, and other sound themes might not have the same issue at all.

Can you help with this problem?
