# Issue

I tried to activate GNOME Multimedia Keys on Exaile and I got the error the following error:

org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: Method "GrabMediaPlayerKeys" with signature "si" on interface "org.mate.SettingsDaemon.MediaKeys" doesn't exist

# Solution

What worked for me was to go to Edit -> Preferences -> Plugins, in the list find Hotkeys -> Xkeys and click on the checkbox to enable it.

If you get the following error message:

mmkeys.so is not available

Install sudo apt-get install python-mmkeys

Now you should be able to tick the checkbox and your multimedia keys should work.
