Bug ID: 370960
Summary: Volume control of Kaffeine affected by other sound
Platform: Mint (Ubuntu based)
concerns: Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon 64bit
Kaffeine used for DVB-T TV.
It is like that:
VLC (for example) and Kaffeine both are running. If I change now the volume in
VLC, the volume ruler of Kaffeine (in pulseaudio) changes with the next
programstart or station switch of Kaffeine to the volume level of VLC. As well
VLC picks up after program (re)start the volume level of Kaffeine (to check in
This becomes important when I wish different sound levels for both apps: I want
to listen to TV (Kaffeine) and watch simultaneous a video silent in VLC. Yes,
that happens, TV to me is often like radio listening..... :).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start Kaffeine (DvB-T) loud
2. start VLC (silent)
3. in Kaffeine switch to another station or restart Kaffeine
1. start VLC (silent)
2 start Kaffeine (loud)
3. Restart VLC
Kaffeine gets as silent as VLC
VLC gets as loud as Kaffeine
Kaffeine keeps its volume level
VLC keeps its volume level
Irritating to me was that In Kaffeine the volume ruler shows no effect on the
Kaffeine-volume ruler in pulseaudio although the volume changes recognizable.
In contrast the volume ruler of
VLC works synchronized with the one in pulseaudio. ????
I cannot give the version of Kaffeine cause now I installed Mint 17.3 64bit on
my PC (here is no problem with the volume levels). But it is the version that
comes with Mint 18 Cinnamon 64bit.
