In gnome shell 3.8 deadbeef global hotkeys do nothing once deadbeef has lost the focus. An prohibit osd icon is showed. It was running fine in shell 3.6 so I suposse deadbeef must be dbus capable and there must be something broke in the upgrade.
try running it from a terminal and see if it spits out any errors.
There's no such thing as a stupid question, but there sure are a lot of inquisitive idiots !
I had already done it and I can see no error related to mediakeys, neither on session.log nor Xorg.log. I have report the issue to upstream anyway. Just if someone could try reproduce the issue and confirm that it is not a config problem.
Well I cannot reproduce this bug, the global shortcuts works when Deadbeef's not highlighted. However, it doesn't remember its windows size and position when closing after upgrading from 3.6 to 3.8... I also cannot browse folders to add into my playlist. In other words, it's broken. I'll try to recompile using the GTK+2 interface and see what happens.
EDIT: just as I suspected, the new GTK 3.8.1-1 upgrade has issues with deadbeef. While whatever is causing this is fixed upstream (either GTK+3 or Deadbeef) we should be using the GTK+2 interface. I added a task in the Arch bugtraker requesting this.
