when I read this PDF ebook and play its audio book file in amarok .
sometimes I want to pause, but I need a Universal Pause short cut key .

how can I make it ?
for example Super + Pause

or one of those Keyboard's Function keys which is Pause but it works just for totem and not for amarok .

space works but u have to click on Amarok windows,
I want a Universal Short Cut, I mean I dont wanna open amarok then use its local short cuts.

Do you want a global shortcut or an app shortcut?

To set a shortcut in amarok:


Open amarok
Click settings
Click configure shortcuts
Scroll/Search to/for Play/Pause (better than just play IMO)

For a global shortcut:
click on Shortcut
Select global
Press the button next to it
Put in your key combo

Press OK to exit
It should now work, if it does not restart amarok


edit the second: you can specify just pause if you want but then you'd have to have another shortcut for play or go into amarok
