Add /home/tc/.config/pulse and /etc/pulse into your filetool.lst and check if the configurations are persistent.

I am not on a Linux System to test right now.

Say us the results.

Adopted from here : https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PulseAudio#Configuration_files.

That will save pulseaudio settings not pavucontrol settings.

Some gtk3 apps save settings under /home/$USER and others use dconf.

Is it possible to set pavucontrol.tcz to solve the problem!?

That will save pulseaudio settings not pavucontrol settings.

No.

I've never checked if you can backup/restore dconf settings, maybe you could make a test - I presume the settings are saved under /home/tc, but first you'd have to use dconf-editor to check if there are any pavucontrol settings in there.

dconf-editor is a program that allows us to tweak the internals of a gtk+ program. But there are no options for pavucontrol in dconf-editor.

So either pavucontrol saves settings under /home/tc or it doesn't save any settings and sets/mirrors what is set by pulseaudio.

First, store the config now after setting it :
Code: [Select]
alsactl store -f ~/asound.stateReboot :
Code: [Select]
exittcRestore it after reboot :
Code: [Select]
alsactl nrestore -f ~/asound.state
I think this may work as the pulseaudio is a layer over alsa and pavucontrol is a layer over pulseaudio.

I am not looking for a personal solution or a personalized solution. I want the solution to be in the pavucontrol.tcz file.

I think that a solution can be produced with a symbolic link.

Because the real problem is TCL's own standard backup feature, this is not a personal problem!
a system deficit and system failure that is not well thought out

Please stop quoting the post immediately before your post.

The two official tinycore solutions are backup/restore and permanent home/opt.

Several users have taken the time to explain to you how these work.

If you don't like the official tinycore solution that is fine, you are welcome to use your own customised solution.

If you try the solution and report us back, we would have an option to update the info file of pavucontrol to link this solution in the info file.

Please note that any solution that is now used by all people was once a personalised solution which is modified to suit all.
