Volume keys (mute, up, down) are properly configured by default. For the other mentioned keys to work, you have to manually do it in System -> Preferences -> Keyboard shortcuts.

Other hotkeys (Fn+something) are properly configured.

In gutsy tribe 1 all keys are automatically configured, except "Launch music player". It has to be done manually in gnome-keybinding-properties.
hotkey-setup version: 0.1-17ubuntu10.

Changed in hotkey-setup:
importance: Undecided → Low
status: Unconfirmed → Confirmed

I'm running Tribe 5 on an Inspiron 6400 and my mute and volume keys are not working. They are recognized but they don't function properly. If I press Mute the notification icon appears on my desktop but the system doesn't mute. The same with Volume keys, the notification icon appears but the sound is not changed neither up nor down.
