    Keyboard Shortcuts not working

    Hi guys.

    Im having some problems with the default keyboard shortcuts on my box, currently running Ubuntu 12.04 fully updated.
    The issue is that some of the shortcuts work.. and some dont. For example, volume up, down and mute are not working.. (special keyboard media keys), but play/pause, next and back are working fine.
    Lock screen is not working.. not even if i change the default configuration to another.. and not even generating a custom shortcut to "gnome-screensaver-command -l"

    Keyboard is detected fine:
    $ lsusb 
    Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0bc2:3300 Seagate RSS LLC 
    Bus 004 Device 002: ID 046d:c517 Logitech, Inc. LX710 Cordless Desktop Laser
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    And the keys are also working ok.

    $ sudo showkey 
    press any key (program terminates 10s after last keypress)...
    keycode 115 press
    keycode 115 release
    keycode 113 press
    keycode 113 release
    keycode  29 press
    keycode  29 press
    keycode  29 press
    keycode  29 press
    Anyone with thoughts ?

    Re: Keyboard Shortcuts not working


    I'm answering with a little knowledge from this area, but my laptop's media keys (I don't have the same laptop as you do) just started working after just upgrading to a newer distribution. You seem to be using Ubuntu 10.04, so it's pretty probable that the media keys would work better in newer distros. Kernel issue I think.

    Do you have a particular reason why you are using 10.04?

    Sorry for not posting any solutions here :/
    It's a kind of magic.
