Compiz: keyboard buttons not recognized

Bug Description

Binary package hint: compiz

When setting keyboard shortcuts in the Compiz settings manager the <super> button doesn't do anything, but in Keyboard Shortcuts, doing the same thing it comes up with 'ISO Level3 Shift', meaning that Compiz doesn't recognize this key. Which also means half of the Compiz effects can't be used as they all use the <super> key in their shortcuts.

I also have the same problem with my other keyboard which is connected to my PS3, Compiz doesn't recognize a few of the multimedia buttons, which Keyboard Shortcuts do.

Just realized that Compiz is working (wasn't working from fresh install), so I've checked, and the Super button is working fine now, but none of my multimedia buttons work on Compiz, while at least half of them are recognized under Keyboard Shortcuts.

We were wondering if this is still an issue for you. Can you try with the latest Ubuntu release? Thanks in advance.
