remote control play/pause gnome

ok so i have just installed Gnome and tried to use the remote control that ships with my compro videomate T750, i can use the volume fine but when it comes to pausing a movie in say smplayer all i get is a ring with a line through it. i know the control works as i use it with LXDE and KDE with no issue at all, i have tried setting keyboard mapping and when i press play/pause the mapping is accepted however when i try to use it it wont work.

anyone have any suggestions / experiance with this issue.

Thanx

EDIT.... have just discovered that the pause button on my keyboard also is not recognised (maybe linked)

Re: remote control play/pause gnome

Have you tried it with the default gnome media player (totem or whatever it is)?

Re: remote control play/pause gnome

yes i tried last night and totem and rythmbox both work. i would have liked to stick with smplayer and maybe i will look for a plugin or something later but for now it seems to be working. however as the original post was regarding a non standard gnome media player i shall hold off marking it solved until either i find or am informed about a work round.
