Multimedia keys have no effect on Banshee in Ubuntu 16.04
Status in banshee package in Ubuntu:
Banshee doesn't repond anymore to multimedia keys in Ubuntu 16.04 with
Unity or Gnome-Flashback
In ubuntu 14.04, running Unity or Gnome-Flashback, I could use the multimedia
keys I had defined globally in ubuntu (In System Parameters -> Keyboards ->
Shortcuts, Sound & Multimedia)
to stop, pause, go to the next track, etc. whenever the banshee application
was visible or not.
But in ubuntu 16.04, the multimedia keys have no effect at all on banshee
(within Unity or Gnome-Flashback).
I have checked that the related extension "multimedia keys" is well actived.
To go further, the log confirms twice that the extension
`Banshee.MultimediaKeys.MultimediaKeysService' fails to work because of a
missing GNOME Settings Daemon (whereas this doesn't occur in 16.04).
