Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 204576
Some sound shortcuts (play, track skip) no longer working in GNOME
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:41 EST
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up keyboard shortcuts
2. open your media player
3. jab "play" key, song doesn't start playing
media player should toggle play/pause state
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.
