I'm having issues with anything considered a "media key" in
dconf -> org -> gnome -> settings-daemon -> plugins -> media-keys
I've tried assigning shortcuts to things like terminal, volume up/down, etc in both
settings -> keyboard -> shortcuts. Regardless of the short-cut combination I use, these keys just do not work.
I'm running Loki 0.4.1 on my mid-2015 Macbook Pro.
I've checked my key names using
sudo xbindkeys -k and have used these names in dconf. I've also tried simply pressing the key in Elementary's keyboard shortcut settings section. Neither of these work, the shortcuts simply do nothing.
I also tried using the
gsettings commands to change the shortcuts, no luck.
It's really quite frustrating, especially for things like volume, screen brightness etc. I'm running the same version of ElementaryOS on my Surface Pro 3 and all media keys work well, so it's just the MBP :(
On a side note, the function keys F1-F12 work perfectly when holding
fn, these are the same physical keys as most of the media keys, so the actual keys aren't busted or anything. I've also tried changing the shortcuts for volume down to something basic like Alt+E but the result is the same, volume doesn't change.
Any help would be appreciated.
