Misbehaving Multimedia Keys
For the past few weeks, I have been unable to control Amarok (or any
other application for that matter) using the multimedia keys on my
laptop. They're recognized - they show up correctly in xev and I can
assign actions to, for example, the play button by pressing it in the
global shortcut configuration dialog (I've tried both the system
settings one and the amarok-specific one). They just don't perform their
assigned actions when pressed. I've also tried non-amarok functions such
as kmix volume mute and they don't work for that either, so it seems to
be something on the system level.
Any suggestions how to debug/resolve this? Could this be caused by my
previous configuration of these buttons as shortcuts while using the
Project Neon amarok-nightly builds (that would explain why the volume
up/down and mute buttons work - I never configured those in
I've uninstalled that now as it was incompatible with Debian's Amarok
2.* packages, but is it possible that it's previous claim on those
global shortcuts remains?
In which configuration file does kde store the global shortcut settings?
I'm thinking that renaming that and starting over is one potential solution.
