Gnome Multimedia Keys

Link:  http://
Minimum required   GNOME 2.x
Downloads:  13467
Submitted:  Jun 22 2007
Updated:  Apr 25 2009

Description:

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:
Play/Pause
Pause
Stop
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.

Requires:
python >2.4
python-dbus
libdbus-glib




Changelog:

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

This is www.kde-apps.org. WTF is wrong with people nowadays, are they incapable of reading? Go post this on a GNOME site.

It needs to be posted here to be available for download from the Amarok script manager. Gnome users enjoy Amarok too.

What a crap argument. It's still for GNOME on a KDE website. If Amarok can't find it if not posted here, adapt Amarok instead of bothering KDE users with GNOME stuff. Nothing against GNOME, but I don't see why it should be advertised on a KDE website.

I can see your point however I do feel that since the Amarok developers are unwilling/unable to fix this issue until Amarok 2 is rolled out with dbus support an alternative should be provided for Gnome users.
Why post it here? Simply because it gives the script the widest possible exposure to all Amarok users that MAY require it. The first place I searched for a fix was the script manager and had there been one there it would have saved me much time spent digging around. Surly you can sympathise with the Gnome users? If there was a viable alternative I would have taken it.
I'm sorry to have angered anyone and don't mean to insult the KDE crowd. I have total respect for you guys.

Are you really "bothered" with this? Amarok is a KDE app and so this is a script for a KDE _app_, which happens to also run outside the KDE _desktop_. You really should look for a better hobby instead of _bothering_ creative people who write scripts.

Sorry about that. Someone has kindly pointed out to me that this error occurs on systems with a non english locale due to some errors in my code. this was an oversight on my part and should now be fixed in v0.3 Thanks go to Jean-Luc Coulon for his fix.

I agree, the script is for a KDE app, helping it to intergrate into a alien environment.

Yes in this case it might be ok! But I can understand that people are quickly annoyed by NON-KDE-apps! We have so much alien applications here, which have nothing todo with KDE, that you just wanna kick these tools out here.

However in this case I see the direct relation to KDE.

Unfortunately most other alien-apps argue just like this: "U can run it under KDE too!" - which is - to be honest - just crap! So we have a lot of GTK and Java-Apps here around ... and no "inform the admin"-Button!!! That would be a great feature...

Thank you. I just upgraded from FC6 to F7 and lost the Amarok key functions for my Logitech keyboard. After a couple of days, I finally hit the right combination in Google to turn up your script.

ReMoot can control multiple programs like Xmms, Kmplayer, RhythmBox, Kaffeine, Banshee, Quodlibet, Totem, Xine, Juk, Noatun and Amarok.

Toghether with LinEAK or KlinEAK ReMoot can make your multimedsia keys work for all those apps without the need to remap keys between use.

This should not be here. It is part of Gnome. If amarok users need that, post it at amarok.

This site is KDE specific, not Gnome specific. For me, this app is useless, and thus I am forced to vote negatively on it. Can we move this away please?

This script is for amarok, which is a kde-application.

Who cares if it is meant for the gnome environment, windows environment or even macos.

kde-software can run on all kinds of platforms and desktops, so you can expect to find kde software meant for a specific situation.

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.
