I find acme works well (http://devin.com/acme/). After building and
installing, just run acme and right-click the icon in the Gnome panel and
choose Preference to configure your multimedia keys. To make it run
automatically each time you start Gnome, just add acme to your Startup
Programs in Sessions (under Preferences).
