And you want the the media buttons on your keyboard to Do The Right Thing without having to reprogram keyboard shortcuts. This package is a solution to that problem. You can set up keyboard shortcuts to map the play/pause button to 'player_do playpause' etc, and player_do generally does the Right Thing. There is a command 'install_gnome' to help set up keyboard shortcuts on GNOME. The currently supported programs can be seen by running 'player_do help'. Those that have been tested include the following: * Audacious * Amarok * Banshee * Clementine * Exaile * Guayadeque * moc * Quodlibet * Rhythmbox * shell-fm Many other players will be supported due to support for the MPRIS DBUS protocol, without a specific backend. If you only need support for those players, consider using MPRIS-remote _. To add more supported programs, see the existing code in the 'backends' directory. Patches gratefully received!
