Bug Description

I have an Acer Aspire 5930. My keyboard has a lot of extra keys; they have Fn-counterparts, but are they're own keys. Two of these keys are Audio next/previous. In Ubuntu 14.04, when I enter the Keyboard settings -> Shortcuts and reassign these two keys to volume up/down, the settings manager tells me the reassignment is done. However, all that happens is that the old buttons for volume doesn't work, and the Audio next/previous skips changes tracks in music and video-players, even though the keyboard settings tells me they're not supposed to.

All this worked completely fine in Ubuntu 12.04.

Edit: Obviously this particular problem only affects me, but it seems to indicate that something is wrong with the reassigning of keys. Title changed to reflect that.

affects: indicator-keyboard → ubuntu
