Current version of Keybinder included in Precise is 0.2.2. Packages:
This version was compiled against Gtk 2.x and with static binding for
python is not usable with Gtk3.
I exchanged a few emails with the author and version 3 has been ready
for a while now, but never officially released.
New version can be found here:
Version 3 is backwards compatible and will work with Gtk2. It also
includes Gobject Introspection bindings.
I've been using this version of keybinder in unstable build of Kazam
Screencaster and I can confirm that GIR bindings work in Python. This
very same git branch is also used for over a year in Arch:
I suggest that keyinder 0.2.2 is replaced with keybinder 3, this way we
keep old functionality and get GIR support.
This should really be considered because right now there is no way to
implement global shortcuts in python if using Gtk3.
