Small issues in Dolphin and volume with Stretch 9.2

Postby linuxsat » 2018-02-22 07:24

Hello,

I have two small issues with my Stretch 9.2 (on a Dell 5480 laptop) I cannot solve:

The first one is in Dolphin which do not save some of my options (especially the "show menubar").
I tried to put a new dolphinrc file in various places especially in the /Home/myhome/.config but
the file is replaced each time I reboot. I do not find a dolphinrc file in /usr/local/share, usr/share or /etc/config
So, where is the file which overwrite my dolphinrc? Is there another solution?

The second one is related to the known bug about the default volume (which is 100%) I already use the solution
proposed in
https://lists.debian.org/debian-kde/2017/01/msg00046.html
and consequently I have already modified my /etc/pulse/daemon.conf (flat-volume=yes > flat-volume=no).
Nevertheless, the problem persist for the first notification made (for instance when I recieve my first email or
when I first delete a file).

Thanks for suggestions

That is odd, maybe until you can sort it out you could hack it with your version on bootup with a script in ~/.config/autostart-scripts
I never use saved sessions, maybe that has something to do with it? There's a tick for that in systemsettings> startup > desktop session maybe try that.

Yeah that's sad, I tried to get along with pulseaudio this time around but that one was a real pita I ended up going with a plain alsa setup and kmix again.

Install pavucontrol
Code: Select all
apt install pavucontrol

and set the system sounds manually. Leave flat-volumes (with "s", it's not flat-volume) at:
Code: Select all
flat-volumes = no

Talking the small issues: KMail daemon (report an incoming message) does not start in Stretch KDE on startup. I need to open KMail and close it after logging in - now the daemon is running and reporting new messages. But I must not forget opening the KMail :mrgreen: otherwise, I will think that I have nothing to answer and I have.

The solution:
Create "/.config/pulse/daemon.conf" (if you don't have it) and put "flat-volumes = no" there. Then run "pulseaudio -k && pulseaudio --start" in a terminal.

For some reason PulseAudio doesn't register changes made in /etc/pulse/daemon.conf.
