Ubuntu Multimedia :: Exaile (0.3.2.0) Hotkeys Not Working
Nov 17, 2010
I have a Logitech g15 keyboard and I cant configure my multimedia keys to work with exaile. I tried the xKeys plugin for exaile but it doesn't work. I even tried setting up this commands in UbuntuTweak but it is not working. While Exaile is running, it can also be controlled via command line arguments. These can be assigned to a keyboard shortcut in your window manager or desktop environment.
exaile -n Play next track
exaile -p Play previous track
exaile -s Stop playback
exaile -a Play currently selected or queued song
exaile -t Pause or resume playback
I noticed that Exaile got a recent update, among the 'new' features, I realized the equalizer plugin is back, problem is, it has no effect whatsoever on the sound.
I have kind of a special case, but still VLC equalizer works like a champ. My system is Ubuntu amd64 running alsa after pulseaudio was uninstalled. The reason I uninstalled PA is that my sound card didn't work at all, and I found out it was not supported by PA, but it is supported by ALsa (since Feisty, go figure!), it's an M-Audio 2496.
Can anyone confirm it's a PA thing or not? Do I have to have PA installed to use it?
I don't remember changing any settings but i've noticed lately things like ctrl+P and ctrl+C and alt+tab just don't work, at all.... it's rather annoying actually... is there any way to re-enable hotkeys?
I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10 (all the way from 8.04) and I can't seem to get Tomboys global hotkey bindings to work. In addition to Tomboys own settings, I have been messing with gconf-editor, but had no success there either. All I need is Alt+F11 combination to open the default note and I have no idea where to go next
i first noticed it while running VLC when at least one of my keyboard hotkeys stopped working. I tried reassigning the key and then reinstalling the packages from SPM and it failed (using kow's ppa) then i did a clean uninstall and reinstall from A/R programs, which didnt fix anything. then later i had problems typing in firefox, specifically with the number pad (the hotkey i'm referring to is also part of the number pad) something makes me think it's my keyboard or keyboard driver, i've been keeping up with the updates for Jaunty, including the most recent kernel update.
I am in Ubuntu 10.04 with its standard desktop environment. Exaile was working great. Now, suddenly it refuses to work. It brings up the splash/loading image and then dies. It works fine under a different user account. I completely restarted, completely uninstalled, completely reinstalled through the Ubuntu Software Center. No luck. I then tried to run it via a terminal.
Here was the output: wmeler@ubuntu1004:~$ exaile INFO : Loading Exaile 0.3.1.1... INFO : Loading settings... INFO : Setting up deferred idle manager function... INFO : Loading plugins...

I installed ubuntu 9.10 last week and it is my ambition to completely switch to this platform at some point. However, I am experiencing some difficulties with the different music players at hand. I currently try to use exaile as my main player. But I can't make it connect to my mp3 player. My player is a Creative Zen X-fi 8GB. Can anyone guide me through the process of making exaile compatible with my zen? As far as I can read from different posts, it should be possible... Another question of mine is the following. Is it possible to edit the artist names in the music library. My problem is that exaile has one entry with the artist name Band of Horses and another with the artist name Band Of Horses. I would like to have these entries as only one entry, but I don't know how to edit the one or the other. Right-clicking doesn't lead to anything...
The usual apologies if this is already dealt with somewhere.I want to use the global hotkeys to banshee when the screen is locked. Possible?(And on a side note, how do I bind the key combo "ctrl+shift+<" ? I get ctrl + shift + >, which it then doesn't react to)
I've seen a couple of unsolved topics on this while researching, but they're all old and I'm hoping somebody's found a solution by now.My laptop has the following keys that I want to assign as global hotkeys to VLC Media Player so that I can use them for... well, for their intended purpose:
I've tried everything first I tried with Preferences/Preferred Applications - no result. then File Type Manager from Ubuntu Tweek - nothing... I tried with a few older Exaile versions (from various repo's) - nothing... compiling 0.3.1.1 from source - still nothing. with these I can set every other player to be default player (so, only Exaile refuses to obey). to be more exact, after setting Exaile as default, double-click on any audio file associated with it results with temporary CPU usage increase and than NOTHING :S just don't tell me to use VLC, Audacious, Rhythmbox, Amarok, QL or any other player... I used them all but I NEED Exaile (and not just because it looks beautiful enough with Ambiance to make me completely forget foobar2k... and because it's sooo stubborn ).
I was glad to see another release of exaile. I'm always happy to see improving mainstream desktop apps, especially when they start being much superior to their commercial counterparts in both, quality and quantity, of features. But as if developers are ignoring the simple usability problems - again - exaile like all other gnome music players (apart from amarok, but that's kde!) can't browse your library by album artist!
genre breakout with shoutcast stations.today no radio.ran in terminal did reinstall, remove/ install in synaptic; still no go.upgraded exaile to 0.3.2.0; still no go.did do automated system update today.
I've been using debian for well over a year, previously with the gnome desktop. I never really liked how much memory and CPU it used, but many things like the hotkeys worked out of the box, and it was relatively easy to configure. After upgrading to Jessie I decided I'd give LXDE a go given it was lightweight and seemed more complete than e17.
However, after over a day struggling to get everything to work just right, I am still unable to use use my hotkeys (volume control, brightness control, etc.). The volume can be controlled through the GUI, but the brightness seems to have no control whatsoever. In any event, I installed the drivers and firmware for the hardware and used the instructions in the link to try and configure the key bindings, but nothing has worked: [URL] ....
:Questions#Change_hotkeys I'm not sure what to do now.
I have been using Ubuntu for almost one year or so. I use to have a good experience with it. But, since last few days I have been experiencing something nuance with my Ubuntu and most particularly the Exaile player. It use to connect to the Shoutcast server fine. But, these days I can't connect it. Everytime I try to connect it; it shows the message, "Error connecting shoutcast server". I have tried reinstalling it along with the normal plugins that use to work fine. But nothing seems working.
For awhile now, I've been trying to set two global hotkeys to control my volume level in Banshee. Before anyone comes in here and says to use the Volume Up/Volume Down keybinds in gnome-keybinding-properties, that does not work. That controls the master volume. I'm looking for a global hotkeys that control JUST the application volume.I've been playing around now, and I think I might have found a way. Since 9.10, Pulseaudio is integrated and the default sound manager. It also allows controlling the application volume level. While changing the volume would be through Pulseaudio and not in the specific application, this would work.
My question is if there's a way to set a keybind to control a specific application's volume within Pulseaudio? Or even a way to set a keybind to the event that happens when a specific application's volume is turned up or down within Pulseaudio.
I have two major issues, and one minor one, after I started using Ubuntu, I tried searching the forum for them, but couldn't find anything relevant to my problems.First issue: Screenshots and the cursor.This is probably a very easily fixed issue, but none-the-less, I can not figure it out.How do I NOT include the cursor in my screenshots on Ubuntu 9.10?What I do is, I press the Prt Scrn button, and my cursor is always there in the image, and I don't want that.Second is pidgin.I love it, but every time I boot it up, my friendly name is reverted back to firefoxfag.I think it has something to do with me using gmail for msn, but I'm not sure...Also, as a last very small issue, the global hotkeys on audacious don't respond unless i open preferences, open settings for global hotkeys, then close down the settings..
This has been happening for a while and I can't figure out how to fix it. If I'm surfing the web listening to music, when I type something -- the song will start changing. Has anyone else run into this problem? Does anyone know how to fix it
I'm using Gnome on 10.10 and use hotkeys (shortcut keys) for opening just about everything. When I go to System>Administration>Preferences>Keyboard Shortcuts and enter a shortcut to open Nautilus (file manager) it doesn't work.
The shortcut key I have set for this (Mod4-m or Windows key+m) works fine if I replace 'nautilus' with 'thunar' or 'pcmanfm' as the command, but when I use 'nautilus', nothing. The same shortcut key works fine to open Nautilus in Xfce. If I type 'nautilus' in a terminal in Gnome up she pops. I can stick just about any other command in there and WinKey+M will work fine.
My regular setup is with Xfce where everything is dandy but I am fairly curious as to what Gnome has against Nautilus in the shortcut key menu.
early yesterday morning, my windows 7 laptop died. the connection that accepts power from the ac adapter died. in response, i put back together my super-old desktop computer and installed the copy of xubuntu 8.04. i had laying around. i have been using windows' os's for my entire life and this is my first run on a linux based machine.
the problem i have is this: i can't install exaile as my media player. after watching videos on videos, googling until i've gone insane and trying plain old trial and error i absolutely cannot figure out how to install it. i downloaded the tar.gz from their website and have it extracted to my desktop. that's as far as i've gotten. this is ridiculously frustrating for me because i feel like i should be able to do this.
I have a USB trendnet TK-209 KVM switch. It switches between all the machines I've tried it with when the NumLock-NumLock hotkey sequence is pressed.t's worked successfully on:Windows XPWindows 7OpenSUSEDebianHowever, it's not switching on my Slackware box while I'm in KDE. If I log out of X, it does work though. It seems like KDE isterfering with the key sequence.
i have recently installed arch linux with just openbox and tint2. i have heard that openbox is a light desktop enviroment but at boot it uses about 300 mb of ram and it seems alot to me.i am also trying to get alt+F2 hotkeys to open gmrun so i added this to the openbox config file:
<!-- Keybindings for running applications --> <keybind key="C-F2"> <action name="Execute">
I am looking for the music database files for Exaile 0.3.0.1 on Karmic Koala. Various posts on the web mentioned ~/.exaile/music.db or /usr/share/exaile/music.db, but there is no database file at either of those locations.
I use Persian language on my system and I really need two things:1. To define a custom layout for my keyboard. I am used to a layout that is not available in Ubuntu. Can I do that? (For example I need the system to enter a ****پ character instead of when I hit the backslash key)2. Defining a custom hotkey. I used a hotkey program in windows so I could enter no-space breaks with shift+space. Can I define that in Ubuntu
