Hi Buck,

It seem your multimedia keys are not recognised.
Launch xev in a terminal and look at the output when typing a key.
You should find ...(keysym xxxx, Name)....
If you got (keysym 0x0, Nosymbol) for your multimedia keys, you'll have
to map them.

2 ways for doing this:
- using xmodmap to give a name to your key and then bind this key in
xbindkeys or in xfwm4. Google is your friend. I'm not using this.
- use lineak : I think it's an easy way
to configure multimedia keys
