Class: OS bug
|Operating System||PureOS||Prometheus 8.0 Beta 1 (64-bit)|
Reproducible: On every system restart, even from shutting down and manually powering on.
I am working with others in the same vicinity and often mute myself as to not distract others. To do that, I use the keyboard's function keys Fn+F4 which do indeed mute the system. When I need to restart the computer for various reasons, such as modifying the "hosts" file, I restart the computer, log back in, and accidentally make a sound from an application, such as Tilix when I press the arrow keys to parse through previous commands, which at the very least startles me.
This is just a hassle rather than a blocking bug since all I need to do is mute the system again.
I keep the system up-to-date with apt update and apt upgrade. This bug has been occuring even before the latest updates as of writing this report. I am not running the OEM version of PureOS but from the ISO provided on the PureOS website.
Steps to Produce/Reproduce
- Use Fn+F4 to mute the system sound while logged in.
- Restart computer.
- Note that the sound icon from the upper-right corner of the screen is unmuted.
- Log in and notice that the sound icon shows that it is muted for a moment but then after waiting for about 30 seconds to a 1 minute, it unmutes itself.
The system sounds should be muted on boot/login.
Upon logging in, the icon shows that the system sounds are muted but after 30 seconds to 1 minute, it becomes unmuted.
Re-mute the system with Fn+F4.
