  * When grabbing keys, try prefixing "XF86" if the key isn't found.
    GNOME gives us unprefixed keys sometimes. (LP: #1302885)

  Media keyboard shortcuts not working

Status in “unity” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  I can map the Volume Control keys in Keyboard Shortcuts e.g. Volume
  up/down to Volume up/down, but when I press the Volume keys on the
  keyboard nothing happens.

  I have noticed the same problem with other keys on my Logitech Internet 350 keyboard with Tools, Mail, and HomePage.
  They can all be mapped with Keyboard Shortcuts, but nothing happens afterwards when the keyboard key is pressed.

  All these keyboard settings worked fine in older versions of Ubuntu.
