Gnome Multimedia Keys


Amarok Script

Gnome Multimedia Keys

Minimum required   GNOME 2.x
Downloads:  13507
Submitted:  Jun 22 2007
Updated:  Apr 25 2009


This script will allow the use of keyboard multimedia keys in Gnome 2.18 and above (eg. ubuntu feisty/gusty/hardy) to control playback. This includes most multimedia buttons found on many laptops. Support for this was broken due to changes in the handling of keyboard shortcuts by gnome 2.18 and later.

Amarok 2 Version is here: http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=103448

Currently supported operations are:
Next Track
Previous Track

Simply run the script, no configuration of the script itself is required. The desired keyboard shortcuts can be configured by selecting "System-->Prefrences-->Keyboard Shortcuts" from the Gnome pannel.

python >2.4


0.2: Added checks to make sure we only run on an affected system.
0.3: Locale fix.
0.4: Add configuration dialogue, add checks to avoid multiple instances.
0.5: add gnome 2.21/22 support
0.5.2: locale fix

(Gnome Multimedia Keys 0.5.2)

 Stupid question but need help!

Hi guys,

I'm new to ubuntu and the idea that you need to run a script to install something. Therefore I need your help to run this script on my computer to get my multimedia keys to run in Amarok 2.0.2 on Ubuntu 9.04.

I downloaded the newest script and extracted it on my desktop. To make it a bit easier I renamed the folder to gmk.

Now how can I run it?

I tried:
cd /ed/desktop/gmk/ - but it gives me no such directory

Please help me out :)

Hi, The script is not designed to be run by the user but rather run by Amarok directly and can be installed as follows:

1) Download the file (do not extract it).
2) Open Amarok
3) Click on "Tools" then "Script Manager" from Amarok's menu bar.
4) Click "Install Script" and locate the file you downloaded.
5) Select the script from the list and select "run"
The script should then automatically be started each time Amarok is opened.

Hope that helps you out, Cheers :)

Perfect - works great :)

Just a note - the Amarok need to be restarted after the script installation.

I've never heard of this problem before. Please download the file again as it may be corrupt.

This script is for the Amarok 1.4.x series. For Amarok 2 use this one: http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=103448

Funny, because this script worked with Amarok 2 on Fedora 11, but thanks for making me aware of that, I'll download correct version.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
