I've always used the b and ctrl-b for brightness +/- in xine-ui. As of 0.99.7 they refuse to work. It appears that other keymaps are fine.

In previous versions, while it worked, for reasons I never figured out it would constantly revert to defaults where b toggled the window border. It did this so often that I kept a copy of my keymap file to overwrite it when it did. That's no longer happening, but the keymap simply does nothing. Here they are in my keymap file:

Code:
# increase brightness by 10
BrightnessControl+ {
   key = b
   modifier = none
}

# decrease brightness by 10
BrightnessControl- {
   key = b
   modifier = control
}


Anyone else notice this?

ffs...I decided to downgrade back to 0.99.6, which did actually work. However now I get this from that key assignment (even if I start with a completely new ~/.xine):

Code:
WOW, num key gui.vo_brightness isn't registered


You know...on my MythTV frontend I've gotten to where I use the MythTV internal player for everything, and it's a good thing, because to be honest, for me, xine had just been getting increasingly buggier for years. I just don't get it.

I have media-libs/xine-lib-1.2.2 and media-video/xine-ui-0.99.7 installed and if I edit ~/.xine/keymap to use the following:

Code:
# increase brightness by 10
BrightnessControl+ {
   key = b
   modifier = none
}

# decrease brightness by 10
BrightnessControl- {
   key = b
   modifier = control
}

then, when I launch xine, it displays an error message that the b key is already used by something else:

Code:
# bordered window toggle of output window
ToggleWindowBorder {
        key = b
        modifier = none
}

so I used instead Alt+b to increase brightness, and Ctrl+b to decrease brightness:

Code:
# increase brightness by 10
BrightnessControl+ {
        key = b
        modifier = meta
}

# decrease brightness by 10
BrightnessControl- {
        key = b
        modifier = control
}

which works fine.

Nope...I've tried every combination like that. Actually I already had that ToggleWindowBorder remapped to something else anyway.

Other keymaps work for me, but nothing I assign to those increase/decrease brightness entries works. I don't get any errors, but they do absolutely nothing.

Insane...and I'm running those exact same versions. Are you on a 64 bit system? xine has been getting so buggy for me that I've been wondering if maybe it's just not getting tested well on x86 lately.

Yes, it's running on ~amd64 on my main laptop.
