KDE Media Keys Vol- Vol+ and Mute Not working <solved>

Post by rdonnelly » Tue Jan 17, 2017 6:47 pm

I was having this problem with my Logitech LX710 and it had worked fine for years.

Go to:
System settings> shortcuts and gestures> global keyboard short cuts> KDE component Kmix > File> set all shortcuts to none> Assign you media keys to volume up, volume down, and mute. Select reassign for each, hit apply when done, and the keys will work again.
Using Mint since 2008
*Mint 18.2 KDE
*ASUS 970 PRO GAMING/AURA AM3+ AMD 970 + SB 950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1
*AMD FX-8370 with AMD Wraith cooler Vishera 8-Core 4.0 GHz (4.3 GHz Turbo)
*G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB DDR3 SDRAM
