This script will allow the use of keyboard multimedia keys in Gnome 2.18 and above (eg. ubuntu feisty/gusty/hardy) to control playback. This includes most multimedia buttons found on many laptops. Support for this was broken due to changes in the handling of keyboard shortcuts by gnome 2.18 and later.
Amarok 2 Version is here: http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=103448
Currently supported operations are:
Simply run the script, no configuration of the script itself is required. The desired keyboard shortcuts can be configured by selecting "System-->Prefrences-->Keyboard Shortcuts" from the Gnome pannel.
