    lubuntu keyboard volume shortcuts with xbindkeys

    1. install xbindkeys in Synaptic or in terminal: sudo apt-get install xbindkeys xbindkeys-config


    2. execute this in terminal: xbindkeys --defaults > ~/.xbindkeysrc


    3. to open xbindkeys GUI, execute this in terminal: xbindkeys-config


    4. press the "New" button on bottom to create a new keybinding


    5. the basics:

    Name: Mute
    Action: amixer sset Master toggle

    Name: Increase volume
    Action: amixer sset Master 1+ unmute

    Name: Decrease volume
    Action: amixer sset Master 1- unmute


    6. after entering each "Name/Action" pair, press the "Get Key" button on right ( you may need to maximize the blank white window that opens),
    press the key or combination of keys you want, and it will capture it for you; then hit the "Apply" button on right


    7. go to "File" tab in upper left corner and hit "Save to default File" in the dropdown menu


    8. Add "xbindkeys &" to your autostart.sh so it runs on startup


    Finished.

    Thanks for this! My main problem is that I can't find my autostart.sh. I've searched the entire directory structure and turned on "show hidden" but I get no results.
