I've just tried to set up some keyboard shortcuts, using Gnome, and
found that some will not do anything, just like when I tried to do the
same back on FC4, and I'm darned if I can find anything helpful about
Some of the functions available in the editor do nothing, yet the keys
assigned do work, e.g. The lock screen function doesn't work, no matter
what keys I use as the shortcut. Yet other functions do work, e.g. the
"Run a terminal" will open a terminal, even if I assign it a key without
a proper name, e.g. 0x7a showing in the configuration window.
Launch help browser - does nothing
Log out - haven't tested
Sleep - haven't tested
Lock screen - does nothing
Home folder - does nothing
Search - does nothing
Email - does nothing
Launch web browser - does nothing
Show the panel run application dialog - works
Show the panel menu - works, but not always
Take a screenshot - works
Take a screenshot of a window - works
Run a terminal - works
Volume mute - does nothing
Volume down - does nothing
Volume up - does nothing
Play (or play/pause) does nothing
Pause - does nothing
Stop playback key - does nothing
Skip to previous track - does nothing
Skip to next track - does nothing
Eject - does nothing
I didn't bother going through all the rest. I'm mostly interested in
getting the volume, play, track skipping ones to work, and the screen
locking one would be handy. But how do you go about this?
In the past I have got XMMS to work with the audio buttons on an FC4
box, but I don't recall having to do anything more than see that keys
had certain X names applied (such as, out of the various play/pause
names that could be picked from, only specific ones worked).
