Rhythmbox and multimedia keys not being picked up

Postby rexc on Sun Apr 08, 2012 10:56 pm

After upgrading all upgradeable packages - pulling MATE and cinnamon, and using MATE for the session, nearly everything has worked.
The only thing that's broken is that my keyboard multimedia keys no longer work with rhythmbox (haven't tried another music player yet)

Looking in .xsession-errors:

(rhythmbox:25554): Rhythmbox-WARNING **: Unable to grab media player keys: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: No such interface `org.gnome.SettingsDaemon.MediaKeys' on object at path /org/gnome/SettingsDaemon/MediaKeys

Anybody else experiencing this or know how to resolve this problem?

Since your using MATE and not Gnome it now wants to call for org.mate. ...
You could try compiling RB yourself or use Gnome ...
I guess you have to report it to the developers of either Rhythmbox or MATE.

edit: Since mediakeys is a plugin we basically need an adjusted /usr/lib/rhythmbox/plugins/mmkeys/libmmkeys.so

Just to make things clear: Mediakeys are working for me in MATE.
Maybe RB doesn't recognize them but they are implemented by the DE perfecty. :heart:

Yep, I believe it's the RB which is broken with MATE at the moment

Same issue is in Ubuntu 12.10 too. Solution: install gstreamer-dbus-media-service
