How to tinker with default multimedia bindings?

Postby Voom » Sun Apr 22, 2012 9:19 pm

I'm trying to reset/overwrite the multimedia keybindings. The problem I have is the mute button seems to somehow be bound directly to the direct device so it only mutes but doesn't unmute. How could I reset this and bind it only to the pulseaudio device's mute?

For Gnome/Cinnamon the following command resets all settings:

Code: Select all

gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/gnome_settings_daemon/keybindings


For setting your own bindings using Xmodmap (part of package x11-xserver-utils) is the most adjustable I know of:

My Linux history: Ubuntu 10.04 - 10.10 - LMDE 201109 - UP4 My sources.list/preferences

Computers is not science. And it's not magic - it's something in between.
