Affects: control-center gnome-control-center (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

Description:
Since a week or two, my multimediakeys stopped working, the ones on my
notebook-keyboard as well those on my usb-logitech-keyboard.

Gnome-keybinding-properties recognises the keycodes when configuring the
keybindings, but pressing the keys afterwards doesn't do anything.

Running /etc/acpi/mutebtn.sh, volupbtn.sh and voldownbtn.sh in a shell
doesn't do anything either...

On the other hand, xev doesn't seem to recognize the different keys,
it's output is always like this, no matter what (multimedia)key I press:

FocusOut event, serial 26, synthetic NO, window 0x3c00001,
    mode NotifyGrab, detail NotifyAncestor

FocusIn event, serial 26, synthetic NO, window 0x3c00001,
    mode NotifyUngrab, detail NotifyAncestor

KeymapNotify event, serial 26, synthetic NO, window 0x0,
    keys:  2   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0
           0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0
