/org/gnome/settings-daemon/plugins/media-keys/custom-keybindings/ fails to load

Bug Description

$ dconf dump /org/gnome/settings-daemon/plugins/media-keys/custom-keybindings/
[custom1]
binding='<Primary><Alt>BackSpace'
command='gnome-session-quit --power-off'
name='gnome-session-quit --power-off'

[custom0]
binding='<Primary><Alt>g'
command='gnome-terminal --geometry=80x99-0+0'
name='gnome-terminal --geometry=80x99-0+0'
$

In spite of the above, time to time, not always, but since 18.04 much much more frequently this settings fails to become active just after booting, ... my account is logged in automatically just after boot.

If I log out and log in again, then these key bindings work.

If I go to the system settings, and define again, then these work again.

Earlier, before 18.04 this phenomenon was rare, namely once a week at most.

But since 18.04 it is almost guaranteed, not deterministic, but highly probable, that after an initial boot or a warm reboot these key bindings will not work.

journalctl | grep gsd-media-keys gives the following result (I upgraded to 18.04 one days before the first entry, Mar 10):

"Do you have an active "gsd-media-keys" process when getting the issue?"

I had no possibility to check it, because I had only two cold boots since the last "Mar 12 08:47:22" occurence of the problem, and the both vere error free. But I do not find the process in question,

do I test it correctly? : ps auxw | grep gsd-media-keys

No I had a possibility to check the situation for the question:

Do you have an active "gsd-media-keys" process when getting the issue?

I have the /usr/lib/gnome-settings-daemon/gsd-media-keys ELV binary, but I do NOT see in the linting of "ps auxw", and even the output of "ps acuwx | fgrep gsd" is empty.

Interestingly the output of "journalctl | grep gsd-media-keys" remained exactly the same, as 3 days before, no new entry.

But none of the two user defined shortcuts work, while all the usual system default shortcuts work.

I welcome further test suggestions in order to be prepared if next time the issue appears.

One thing is interesting, that just after updating to 18.04, the frequency of the issue became high for a few days, and as soon as I submitted this issue, I had to wait 3 days (4 booting) in order to get the issue again.

Output of "dmesg | grep -i gsd" is empty.

Outout of "journalctl | grep -i gsd" has no new items in the last 4 days.

However I found interesting lines in journalctl, hence I try to add the result of "journalctl | grep -i key | grep -i failed > journalctl_key_failed.txt" as an attachment.

I am also ready to install some sort of Watchdog daemon, which can better detect what is going on in this kind of situation. I can imagine a say a small shell script or something alike as well.

Right now I have again a boot resulting no custom keybindings while all the other keybindings work.

Again: "ps acuwx | fgrep gsd" is empty, and "journalctl | grep gsd" has no new entry since "Mar 12 08:47:48".

A reboot won't be necessary, it should work after you log out and re-log in. For some reason it is not grabbing the key when a grab is already pending.

Is it possible that some app use same key-binding shortcuts? What is the primary key here? Super? Try some other modifier like CTRL+SHIFT. Have you used gnome-tweak-tool or compiz-config-settings-manager to add custom shortcuts?

Do this on fresh install:

1) Open terminal on unity.
2) Run "unity-settings-daemon -r --debug", keep it open
3) Now Try removing the shortcut from Unity control center -> keyboard -> shortcuts
4) Try re-adding the shortcut.
5) Paste the output from terminal on https://pastebin.ubuntu.com/

First of all, many thanks for your help.

https://pastebin.ubuntu.com/p/nrtyQZMPdB/plain/

Firs I disabled the keystrokes at the two items in question, then I removed the items as well.

Then I re-entered the two items ('gnome-session-quit --power-off' and 'gnome-terminal --geometry=80x99-0+0') and then configured keystrokes for them ('<Primary><Alt>BackSpace' and '<Primary><Alt>g').

The result is, that whenever I do this, the two keystrokes does NOT come back until I logout and login again.

Later I discovered, that as soon as I commit the command "unity-settings-daemon -r --debug", the keystrokes in question disappear.

Even later I discovered, that not only the custom bingins go away with committing the debug command, but the redefined normal bindings: I like the web browser (launchers / launc web browser) at '<Primary><Alt>f', but it is not there anymore if I start the debug command.

An interesting side-effect is, that when the problem during debug command arise, then the decoration of the Unity control center changes from my usual Radiance back to the default Ambiance.

After logging out and back, the decoration and all the redefined or custom bindings come back.

In my case the primary key is the ALT, actually the left alt.

As far as I know, no usage collision of alt-ctrl-g, alt-ctrl-backspaces, ...

I do not use any other setting manager. The problem is ther if I do it 'by hand' in Unity control center. However normally I set up almost everything with script, here is the shortcut setting part:

CK='/org/gnome/settings-daemon/plugins/media-keys/custom-keybindings'
DCONFWRITE='dconf write '
DCONFWRITE+="${CK}"
${DCONFWRITE}/custom0/name "'unset'"
${DCONFWRITE}/custom0/command "'unset'"
${DCONFWRITE}/custom0/binding "'unset'"
${DCONFWRITE}/custom0/name "'gnome-terminal --geometry=80x99-0+0'"
${DCONFWRITE}/custom0/command "'gnome-terminal --geometry=80x99-0+0'"
${DCONFWRITE}/custom0/binding "'<Primary><Alt>g'"
${DCONFWRITE}/custom1/name "'unset'"
${DCONFWRITE}/custom1/command "'unset'"
${DCONFWRITE}/custom1/binding "'unset'"
${DCONFWRITE}/custom1/name "'gnome-session-quit --power-off'"
${DCONFWRITE}/custom1/command "'gnome-session-quit --power-off'"
${DCONFWRITE}/custom1/binding "'<Primary><Alt>BackSpace'"
${DCONFWRITE} "['${CK}/custom0/','${CK}/custom1/']"
unset DCONFWRITE
unset CK

However, the problem is still there, if I do it by hand, and during the debug command the setting is recorded only and it comes to alive after a logout/login cycle.

I am ready to make further experiments, no comes the CTRL+SHIFT instead of CTRL+ALT, how you have just suggested, ... many thanks.

Also it can't grab a key when previous invocation still pending. This multiple times grab/ungrab simply doesn't work.

I believe it is fixed in g-s-d but u-s-d never updated, still using legacy_key-grabber code.

everything went away, for example the Alt-` is still working (switch

Also the line "(unity-settings-daemon:3287): media-keys-plugin-WARNING **:

Modifier+Alt+Backspace has already been used to kill the x server. For me modifier is Ctrl and Alt is is window action key not [super]. You can check this gnome-tweak-tool -> windows.

That's why it (Alt+Backspace combination) probably doesn't work with or without modifier. Other custom shortcuts works after log-out/log-in which is a bug in unity-settings-daemon.

My problem is NOT whether the custom shortcuts work just after setting
them or I need a log-out/log-in cycle.

The problem is, that a half dozen times (= boots, usually in the morning)
the ctrl-alt-g works, and then for one or two boots fails to load, and
then agin works for a few days (this computer not running when I sleep).

I understand, that ctrl-alt-backspace MAY be affected by the x-server.

But the ctrl-alt-g is a "virgin use" of that keystroke, and they are
always together good or bad, they behave never different.

I found the root cause. Unity uses legacy keygrabber code depending on xdg env variable DESKTOP_SESSION. But since artful DESKTOP_SESSION is "unity" and not "ubuntu".

The fix is in unity7-desktop ppa.

https://code.launchpad.net/~unity7maintainers/+archive/ubuntu/unity7-desktop

In 18.10, add the ppa (ppa:unity7maintainers/unity7-desktop)and upgrade unity-settings-daemon and libunity-settings-daemon.

Now custom shortcuts works as expected.

Note: The ppa also the fix for sharing panel.

Not sure if my problem is related to this one. All my shortcuts seem to work as expected, except for the ones used to control playback: play/pause, next track, and prev track work only if I use them in combination with the Alt Gr key (aka Lever 3 Shift).
Since I already have to press Fn to activate media-keys, it means I have to use a combo of 3 disperse key just to play/pause the music...

I have tried to use the above ppa, but it did nothing, since the official repos seem to have the updated versions of the packages already.

I should also say that I have installed my Unity desktop from an initial Xubuntu desktop setup. So I don't know if I am missing something from Gnome or if I am having some conflicting setting from XFCE or some other environment, as I've been DE-hopping quite much in last year...
