I'm not sure whether this is Fedora related or xfce related but as nobody over at the Fedora forums can help me I suspect it may be an xfce issue. I've setup keyboard shortcuts to control my audio volume - Ctrl + up, Ctrl +down and Ctrl + M (mute). But they don't work. I had no idea what the commands were so I just copied the defaut ones, which are:
aumix -v0 (mute)
aumix -v-10 (down)
aumix -v+10 (up)
Are the shortcuts not working because those are the wrong commands for the xfce mixer?
Out of curiosity - the default keyboard shortcuts for the above commands are:
I have no clue what keys they are supposed to represent which is why I created a custom set of shortcuts.
Has anyone managed to set keyboard shortcuts for xfce? :?
PS. My laptop has a Fn key which when combined with arrow up or arrow down, controls the volume in Windows. If I could possibly get that same keyboard shortcut to work in Fedora I'd be really happy but it doesn't recognise the Fn key. Any way to get it to do that?
I dont know about those special keys but I got working volume keyboard shortcuts using these commands:
amixer set Master 15+ (volume up)
amixer set Master 15- (volume down)
Thanks for that. I tried it but it doesn't work for me. What keyboard shortcuts did you set for those commands just out of curiosity? Not that it should matter.
I use ctrl + shift + KP_add and KP_subtract
you must have installed aumix, otherwise it could not work.
