I recently updated from Ubuntu 19.04 to 19.10 and noticed the multimedia keys such as Play and Stop stopped working in Kodi. Whenever I press a multimedia key, it only shows a big crossed circle icon (also in desktop). I tried to enable/disable the shortcuts for the multimedia keys, but it didn't work. I also cannot create a new shortcut with the multimedia keys, because the big icon already appears when pressing the key. I'm no more sure if I had to disable or enable the shortcuts in 19.04 though.
I'm not sure, if it is related, but the Ubuntu upgrade finished not clean. It ended in console and I had to reset my PC. However everything seems to work correctly besides the multimedia keys.
Any help would be appretiated.
