Some background: I recently upgraded to 16.04 from 14.04 on a 2nd gen Thinkpad X1 Carbon with the adaptive keyboard. It seems Unity picks up volume / brightness keys correctly on this model. But if I manually start up an
i3 session, these keys aren't picked up. I used to be able to manually start
gnome-settings-daemon which would fix this.
Question: What is the equivalent of
gnome-settings-daemon on 16.04? Or, equally as useful: how to find out which daemon / program in my Unity is able to pick up these keys so I can start the program manually in my i3 sessions?
