My problem is, that after i restart a program, the volume is back to 100%
I start a program, i put it on 20%, close it and start it again and it is again on 100%

What you are describing would be considered normal behavior for many programs.

What is the program?

Is there an aspect of changing the system volume instead of the program volume that is undesirable for your use case?

What is the program? that list would be endless, cause its every program i had installed, have installed or could install in future.
And no, i dont want to change the system volume, cause that would lower the volume of my browser and discord too, and i dont want that.
But maybe you dont know what i mean, i mean the volume from this thing.

I'd recommend updating your system before doing anything else. Rolling-release distros often see fixes with package updates (but also regressions, but that's just part of the cycle).

No, did not help. It is now on version 0.3.50 and the problem is still there.
Is there maybe some config file i can delete or something? cause pipewire should save the volume somewhere, maybe that file is broken

What have you researched? What did you find? Be specific. What are the links? Who else has (had) the problem? What did you try and what were the results? Be specific. Give us the output. What did you not try, and why.

These are the type of responses you need to be prepared to state or post when you ask questions in any Linux forum. It helps those that would and could help you to do so.

I did search, and i didnt find anything about that problem.

Then it doesn't exist--unless you caused it. What did you do that caused it? I'm not joking. Either it is unique to your hardware or your settings. What do you have that is unique and/or what did you do?

"Common" problems don't usually exist in a vacuum. I have seen this problem reported before.

Just because i didnt found it with searching for it doesnt mean it doesnt exist. Maybe i searched wrong or something.
But yeah, i did something to cause it. I restored the backup of my system. I backed it up with Rsync, reinstalled garuda and then i restored the backup.

yeah, then i searched wrong, i searched for "pipewire does not save program volume" or something
I will look at the results of your link

Good for you, mate. I only searched on your topic header prefaced by (Linux). Good luck separating the wheat from the chaff. :slight_smile:

I solved it. I deleted the configs, and now everything works again.
Thats why i asked where the config files are.

Learn to search, please :slight_smile:

Most of the time, the conf(ig) ar in ~/.config.

And your post is not a solution in real life.
Because you didn't post where you deleted what.
