Hi there, I consider myself as a newbie in Manjaro and on Linux in general, even though I have been using at for more than a year now. The only ¨ issue¨ that I´m having or perhaps will be better to say question , is that the sound volume on Manjaro is lower than on Windows , I´m using it on my personal computer an Lenovo AIO , information below, first with pulse audio and after that with pipewire to check if that will do any difference, it didn´t. Before this Pc was with windows and I set the sound of the speakers to 30% because beyond that was too loud for me, but when I switch to Manjaro it comes out that at 30% I can´t listen to most of the things (videos, games) or are too low, I need to increase the volume to maybe 55% to 65% so I can have the same volume that I used to with Windows at 30% .
Anyone has an idea of why this happens?
