Bug Description

Not sure if you have seen this, but the Play/Pause media key does not work anymore for Pithos.

It seems the solution is to call GrabMediaPlayerKeys method. I am only summarizing what others have said, but really miss this feature and hope it is easy for you to fix.


Thanks for such a great application.

Thanks for pointing me to those posts. Several other users have reported this, but I didn't have a chance to look into it.

Can you test bzr r177 and see if it solves this problem?

Quit Pithos, then in a terminal,
bzr branch lp:pithos pithos
cd pithos
