I have tried to get Kubuntu to use my multimedia keys, and I cannot figure out how to do this. This feature is default in Ubuntu and in Linux Mint. They just work. I have followed the KUbuntu wiki post on Multimedia keys. I tried to enable Multimedia maps with
xmodmap. It did not work. I tried to use the KDE GUI and could not seem to make the function I wanted work.
The functions I am trying to get to work are
- fn+F12 = skip song
- fn+F11 = previous song
- fn+F10 = stop
- fn+ F9 = play/pause.
I know this is possible because it worked in Ubuntu and in Mint, but it does not work in Kubuntu. I have submitted a bug report on this issue.
Disclaimer: I am using Kubuntu 12.04
I have looked at this post, but Is there a way to enable Ubuntu Keyboard shortcuts in Kubuntu? do not know what to call the keys in that program.
