Public bug reported:

Banshee doesn't repond anymore to multimedia keys in Ubuntu 16.04 with
Unity or Gnome-Flashback

Expected : 
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).
