A short of what I've been playing with lately. It's a screen recording of my desktop running on my .

Sitting in front of my Librem14 is my pointing its camera at the notebooks screen...


After playing around with phoc/phosh on my notebook I found that the media-keys in gnome didn't work anymore after closing and .

Later on I wasn't able to suspend my running with (3.38.5) on by hitting Fn-Esc.

It turned out that the gsd-media-keys¹ daemon got confused over phosh grabbing and releasing the controls.

Stopping the daemon via killall gsd-media-keys and re-starting it using systemctl start org.gnome.SettingsDaemon.MediaKeys.target or executing /usr/libexec/gsd-media-keys &, disown %1 restored the functioning of the hotkeys.

Didn't file an issue, yet, because I don't know if this is reproducible in newer versions of Gnome. @agx@social.librem.one, maybe it'd be nice to add some information to the article in case people wonder why there hotkeys do not work after following those instructions?

¹this is the only documentation I found describing in short what the daemon does - any hints to newer official sources are welcome

Just learned that in it is possible to paste the primary selection (the stuff marked with the mouse) via - inside gnome-terminal and tilix.

In x11 I used to synchronize primary selection and clipboard and after switching to gnome-wayland for now nearly a year I'm still confused and sometimes annoyed by the clipboard/selection management.
