    Custom keyboard shortcuts

    I've had to set up keyboard shortcuts in system settings for media control.

    I have to reset them on each boot.

    Any ideas how to get them to work properly?

    Re: Custom keyboard shortcuts

    Thats a real issue now, as gsettings already write/overwrite so many shortcuts for GS & Unity (becomes a nightmare to remember that crappy design )

    No idea then - just a random comment.

    Re: Custom keyboard shortcuts

    I've had a couple of custom shortcuts set for a couple of months, they stay persistent (2 in keyboard, one in compiz/commands
    May be worth posting one or two that don't stay for you, binding & command, former May be more relevant.
    (& what session you use, thread tagged ubuntu so would assume unity or gnome-shell

    Re: Custom keyboard shortcuts

    This is Unity - all completely updated.

    All shortcuts that are failing are for Sound and Media

    Alt +F5 - Previous
    Alt +F6 - Stop
    Alt+F7 - Play/Pause
    Alt+F7 - Next

    All work fine when I've rebooted, gone back to settings and reset them.

    If I had a keyboard with all media keys I guess they'd work, the vol up/down/mute all work fine, but they're still default

    See what you mean, see 2 workarounds atm
    1. use an add. modifier, ie., shift+alt+F5
    2. open ccsm > unity > general > 'key to show hud' & either disable entirely or give Hud a new key that's 'free'

    Re: Custom keyboard shortcuts

    I'll try disabling HUD from the moment, if that 'fixes' it I'll look for a 'free' key.

    Not going to try using an additional modifier - I want a combo I can use with one hand without anymore thinking than I already have to do

    WIll report back once I've rebooted.

    Giving it a moments add. thought -
    You could also just not use alt for media sc's, maybe try shift+F5, ect. ??

    Disabling hud worked it seems.

    I can live with that.

    But the fact that you can't use things for custom shortcuts isn't so good I guess in the long wrong.
