Gnome's shortcut keys only works, if the shortcuts you want to use are not define by the Gnome shortcut system, because clementine cannot fetch the shortcuts.
Therefore we have to deactivate the gnome shortcuts and go to
gnome-control-center keyboard to the tab
Shortcuts. There deactivate the shortcuts in
Sound and Media which you like to control with Clementine. For instance I disable
Play (or play/pause),
Previous track and
Next track. You can deactivate a shortcut by clicking on it and the if there is written
New shortcut... press
clementine, go to
preferences to the tab
Global Shortcuts. Uncheck the box
Use Gnome's shortcut keys. And assigne the shortcuts you want to use to control clementine.
System Settings, select
Keyboard. Go to the
Shortcuts tab, click
Sound and Media in the left column. For
Play (or play/pause), click on
Audio Play to change the hotkey.
I changed it to Ctrl + AudioPlay for example, anything un-useful just to be out of the way.
Now (as previously stated) in Clementine, go under
Tools -> Preferences -> Global Shortcuts and uncheck
Use Gnome's shortcut keys. Then click on Play/Pause to set a new shortcut and press the AudioPlay key.
