Need Help With Ubuntu 7.04 and Multimedia Keys in Amarok

Saturday, May 19, 2007


Hello readers!
I am hoping someone here can help me. I recently upgraded to Ubuntu Fiesty Fawn 7.04 (see my review here), and everything has been going great, except for one extremely annoying issue. Before upgrading, I was able to flawlessly use the multimedia keys on my Saitek Eclipse II keyboard in Amarok. After upgrading... they don't work anymore :( . That is, Amarok recognizes them (I can set them in the Settings -> Configure Global Shortcuts dialog), but using them while Amarok is running doesn't do anything. They are recognized correctly as using the XF86Audio tags (such as XF86AudioPlay or XF86AudioPrev), but again, they do not work.
It seems as though other users have been having the same trouble: link 1, link 2. However, it doesn't seem as though there are any fixes. My thread in the Ubuntu forums has received no replies despite numerous BUMP's.. so I am calling out to you (readers of this blog) for some help. Any advice you can give me would be greatly appreciated!

I've got the same problem. I think the keys are trying to control your default media player.

It has been fixed! Or at least, it works now :D
Check out the post about it.

lol just figured it out and came back to post again. The events get caught before amarok receives them. Never thought of using amaroks shortcuts in the first place. Think the same happens when you use keytouch.

Yes, that seems to be the problem. Glad you got it worked out!
