I just wanted to make sure that you have tried the normal way - System
-> Settings -> Keyboard Shortcuts (or is it just Shortcuts in the
English menu). That's were I used to get the multimedia keys of my
Logitech Cordeless Comfort keyboard to work. It's a funny coincidence
that now when I just finnished re-installing Feisty 20 minutes ago, the
multimedia keys work without any intervention from my behalf. The "old"
installation - when I had to set the shortcuts - was only a month old.
Things just keep getting better :-)
