OS 11.1 Gnome 2.24 MS Keyboard


I have a Microsoft Media Pro Keyboard which OpenSuse 11.1, Gnome 2.24 recognises as a Microsoft Wireless Multimedia keyboard. My keyboard shortcuts are set up, e.g. for Mute I press the Mute key and it shows XF86audio mute, BUT this key any others don’t have any effect. The xev shows that these keys are recognised by X, but Gnome doesn’t react to them, e.g. mute, play/pause etc.

Can anyone suggest any thing?



A re-install of Compiz was required…

This also fixed all those annoying compiz problems like the window manager dying and the settings being lost over reboots.
