My keyboard doesn't have media keys and I've always used Super shortcuts for media keys. However in Ubuntu 12.04 they no longer work.

I want:

  • Super+C - Play/Pause
  • Super+X - Stop
  • Super+Z - Previous
  • Super+V - Next

I've tried replacing "Super" with "Mod4" in gconf-editor in /apps/gnome_settings_daemon/keybindings after setting them in SettingsKeyboardShortcuts.

I've checked other keybinding locations but have found no other media keybinding settings in gconf-editor.

My muscle memory thanks you in advance ;)
