I haven't seen this anywhere else, and this is the only major showstopping issue that I have with a transition to XFCE.
System: HP Pavillion DM1-3200US
I'm interested in moving over to XFCE, but my main issue is that media keys don't work properly. I've tried the solution provided on XFCE's Wiki (mapping the keys), but that isn't a proper solution for me - the laptop I'm on doesn't light up when the sound is muted with that solution.
I've seen that
gnome-settings-daemon actually properly detects the media keys on my netbook, but when I experimented with that in a live environment, it only worked for a single session, and failed to work.
My question then becomes:
Is it a good idea to use
gnome-settings-daemonon my XFCE build? If so, what would I need to install/include/build/divine/hack to ensure that it worked consistently throughout a normal days' use?
gnome-settings-daemonis not a tenable long-term solution, what would I need to perform to not only get media keys to work properly, but also to get my netbook's "Mute" light to work properly?
