Might have something to do with flat-volumes. Do you have them enabled?
(`grep flat-volume /etc/pulse/daemon.conf`) If so, try disabling them:
docb@T520:~> grep flat-volume /etc/pulse/daemon.conf ; flat-volumes = yes
Set flat-volumes to no in /etc/pulse/daemon.conf. Restart pulseaudio with `pulseaudio -k` or simply logging out and back in.
Indeed that fixed it.
Hm. "flat-volumes = no" should actually be the default since about 2 years. It's normally set in /etc/pulse/daemon.conf.d/disable_flat_volumes.conf. Are you missing that file maybe?
No, the file is there, and it contains 'no'. Strange, I have definitely never touched this setting....
Check the output of "pacmd list-sink" It should show "FLAT_VOLUME" or such if the flat volume is enabled. Try with and without your own setup to see whether it gives any difference or whether it's really due to flat volumes.
I quickly checked my laptop running Leap 15.0, and it handles /etc/pulse/daemon.conf.d/disable*.conf properly, the flat volume is disabled there.
