GNOME mmkeys interface changed

Kjel Oslund just informed us that GNOME’s multimedia keys interface has changed.

That’s so messed up.

The reason for the change: “With the move of the gnome-settings-daemon to its own module, the DBus interface names have changed.” (source).

I’ll see if they’ve finally written a documentation for this interface, otherwise I’ll post an update to my old reference doc. I’ll put it in the Exaile wiki so it’s more “official”; it’ll also be simpler to edit if it changes again (*cough* API stability *cough*).

Of course, I also have to change the code in Exaile to support both the old and new interfaces. As a reference, the Rhythmbox counterpart might be useful.

    So would that be why the multimedia keys, that always worked out of the box for previous versions of gnome/exaile, do not work for me in ubuntu hardy ?

    I don’t know which GNOME version this was changed in, but you’re most likely correct.
