    [SOLVED] Multimedia keys in Amarok


    I'm just curious if Amarok is able to recognize multimedia keys on laptops. I've been using it for a while now, and I'm loving it. Unfortunately, though, I've not been able to figure out how to get it to work with the multimedia keys on my Toshiba Satellite L305D laptop. They work perfectly in Rhythmbox and nothing shows up in dmesg when I press them, so I really don't have the first clue where to look or what to try in order to get the keys to work. Right clicking the icon in my systray just to control the player gets old quick.

    Edit: Turns out the fix was quite easy. I overlooked "Configure Shortcuts."

    I'm not using any full desktop environment actually. I'm just using Openbox as a window manager.

    Crunchbang Linux is Openbox and has instructions for using multimedia keys. You have to "discover" and "allocate" them.

    A bit of a pain.

    See HowTo: Configure your multimedia keys for Exaile (Page 1) - Tips, Tricks & Scripts - CrunchBang Linux Forums
