I hope this is the correct category for this post. If not please feel free to move.
To explain my hardware set up to understand the question:
I previously used a USB volume knob to control volume. It worked fine, controlled volume system-wide and I allowed the notifications to show the volume levels. Let’s call this
Then, I changed my desktop speakers for something a little fancier. These 2.1 speakers came with its own hardware control knob which has a bass slider, and itself is an on/off switch. Let’s call this
Volume B. This now replaced
Volume A and controls volumes system-wide but obviously externally.
But what I now want to do is use both pieces of hardware in a specific configuration. I want
Volume A to control ONLY my media player and NOT affect any other volume levels across the system. I will then continue using
Volume B system-wide.
Using the graphical interface
pavucontrol doesn’t give me this fine-grain control. I’m guessing that I’ll need to edit the `etc/pulse/default.pa’ file, or one of the files in that directory?
Can anyone please help me with this? Thanks
