How to increase volume above 100%?

Dear community,

I found a way to increase output volume above 100% by clicking on the sound icon in the panel and then dragging the slide above 100% [1].

However, what I would prefer is using my touchpad to scroll over the icon and/or pressing the volume keys on my keyboard to go above 100%.

Is this possible as of yet?

If not, I would file this as a bug feature request.

Yours

^^^Depends on the type of audio... server(?) - pulseaudio, et cetera - that the user and/or distro maintainer chooses to use, apparently.^^^

I'd be happy if everyone just started treating "100%" as, you know... 100%. In other words, as loud as it can get. Then there'd be no issue like this. Possibly an issue of potentially ruining one's speakers due to clipping, lol, but that'd fall under "user error," which is different from the whole "linux doesn't know how to count" issue (also evident in version numbers, where "4.8" is less than "4.10," for example) roll .

It looks like a bug report already exists for xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin: https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14148. Feel free to add your comment to bring it to the developer's attention.

Exactly what I had been looking for, thank you!
