in alsamixer you can manage volume of all speakers mics that you have besides try using pavucontrol package to set volume on system sound and others or maybe your problem is in drivers ?

Volume control works fine, I think the problem is not in the drivers but in the persistence of the set values, i.e it's reset to the default values after logout/login rather than being saved and stay persistent after logout/login (which I believe is the desired behavior - all other OS I've worked with have persistent volume)

How are you changing the volume, and what desktop is this in?

Volume bar at the top right or via keyboard Fn keys. I use Xfce desktop env.

Have you tried moving your ~/.cache folder to a different name and see if that helps at all? Or possibly run pavucontrol from a terminal and see if it spits anything out when you try to change the volume?

Actually - had another thought - does your root user have a ~/.config/pulse directory?

I did what steev suggested, got this:
pavucontrol doesn't spit anything, I can change the volume as expected.
If pavucontrol is open - when I log out and log back in - the volume is persistent (stays the same as was configured before the log-out).
If I close pavucontrol - when I log out and log back in - the volume is set to default value.
I do have ~/.config/pulse dir with some backup files (.tdb) and some default configs.

When you say you do have ~/.config/pulse - are you saying for root? or just for your normal user? If root, can you try removing root's copy of ~/.config/pulse and then see if the changes stay persistent?

Oh, you meant the actual root user?
root user doesn't have this folder, only my user (which has root privileges)

Can you both try moving the ~/.config/pulse directory out of the way? Also, to be sure, can you please give us the output of `dpkg -l | grep pulse`

Moving the folder ~/.config/pulse didn't help.
