Description Jens Knutson 2006-08-30 02:05:42 EDT
Description of problem:

The sound shortcut keys I set up in the GNOME Keyboard Shortcuts for
"Play/Pause", "Stop playback", "Skip to previous track", and "Skip to next
track" stopped functioning about a week ago.  (Sorry, was without net access
till now, couldn't file the bug!)

Despite this, the volume and mute shortcuts still work fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up keyboard shortcuts
2. open your media player
3. jab "play" key, song doesn't start playing
Actual results:
Nothing happens

Expected results:
media player should toggle play/pause state

Additional info:

They were working fine last week in Muine and Totem (my primary media apps) as
well as Banshee and Rhythmbox.  They no longer work in any of these.

I have tried disabling the shortcuts and re-adding them, as well as trying
completely different keys/key combinations, all to no avail.

I have a patch I'm working on to get rhythmbox back in order (then I'm going to
do totem).  I thought Muine would already work, so I'm a bit surprised that it
doesn't.  I'll have to investigate that.
