Yeah I’m still thankful for that other ‘turn off IBUS’ fix though. To stop the other weirdness.
Anyhow about this issue: All my keyboard shortcuts seems screwed up now. What I did to test a way forwards was find the default keybinding for ‘volume-up-static’ in dconf editor. This default was set to the value
['XF86AudioRaiseVolume', '<Ctrl>XF86AudioRaiseVolume']… well so i replaced that with
 empty array and then went into my corresponding custom keyboard shortcut
custom4 for raising the volume. And pasted it (that same default value) into there. Now this disabled the default one but it unfortunately still didn’t work because (aparrently although being the default setting, the
['XF86AudioRaiseVolume', '<Ctrl>XF86AudioRaiseVolume'] are not actually what my specific keyboard or remote control are generating for volume up media keys button).
What clearing the default binding did also was to actually permit me to assign now the volume up button in the gnome settings / control centre official GUI (not dconf). So back in there I can now assign volume up. And the exact name that appears assigned for that key in the Dconf editor appears as
AudioRaiseVolume instead. And with no
[ , ] array brackets. So maybe I can manually tweak that as a text string in dconf too. In order to enable using it with
shift+ modifiers or
ctrl+ modifier keys for making those other subtle ‘precise’ adjustment etc.
Which is (I am guessing) some new good benefits / reasons why there are now multiple default shortcuts appearing for those new variations in the dconf entries listings. As can also be seen in my dconf screenshot above (last message). Which is great and all to be able to know how to set that finer controls / modifiers on the media keys. However it’s a heck of a lot of work though! To go through everything properly.
Currently wondering what’s the best way to do this, if I should first nuke the whole dconf folder / tree there. And get it to reset the all first. Because I think maybe I still have the original commandline for creating my own customizations somewhere.
Anyhow - check your own dconf database too! In the dconf editor. At
/ org / gnome / settings-daemon / plugins / media-keys. This is also where the custom keybindings are written too (into a sub folder of that named
custom-keybindings). See if you have these same new extra ones and ‘static’ whatever?
It’s almost like the official GUI (the long list in gnome control centre --> devices --> keyboard) has not caught up to properly deal with them / handle them. Or it’s just because the cruft from existing upgrading users with the old entries are not the same anymore… IDK
