I've tried to edit the configuration file in
~/.config/openbox/lxde-rc.xml however the changes don't take effect, i still can't use the keys.
The LXDE wiki shows that after finding that my keyboard sends the correct standardized keyboard events i should go and edit the file to my liking, the keyboard does send the correct events and the keys are properly identified yet nothing happens.
Since LXDE doesn't come with a sound preferences option i have installed
xfce4-mixer. I too have a netbook running Lubuntu and its media keys are working fine, i don't know if what i installed has had something to do here?.
I also installed
xfce4-volumed volume keys daemon from synaptic but to no avail, still nothing.
How can i make the multimedia keys of my keyboard ( Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 1000) work in LXDE with
Edit: Here is my lxde-rc.xml file
I've commented the line
/etc/xdg/autostart/xfce4-volumed.desktop and now i get a notification when pressing the Volume keys however it doesn't have any effect on the audio output. The Play/Pause, Stop, etc. Keys still don't work.
I also tried to use the commands my XML file has, i.e.
amixer sset Master 3%+ and i get this:
Simple mixer control 'Master',0 Capabilities: pvolume pvolume-joined pswitch pswitch-joined penum Playback channels: Mono Limits: Playback 0 - 64 Mono: Playback 5 [8%] [-59.00dB] [on]
Using the command again raises this value
Mono: Playback 5 [8%] [-59.00dB] [on] to
Mono: Playback 7 [11%] [-57.00dB] [on] but no audible effect is noticed.
