Gnome Shortcut doesn't work in Gnome 3.26 anymore because Gnome people discovered that they didn't follow their own documentation, and rather than change the documentation to change the current implementation, they decided to change the implementation to match the documentation, and break all the existing apps in the process. THANKS GNOME. See for more details.

Instead of listening on org.gnome.SettingsDaemon, the plugin must now listen on org.gnome.SettingsDaemon.MediaKeys

According to , the change has been backported into old versions of Gnome, but in order to make sure not to break anything for users of older versions of Gnome, the proposed patch first try to use org.gnome.SettingsDaemon, and only switch to the org.gnome.SettingsDaemon.MediaKeys if the old name fails. Using only the new name does create failure for some user according to this:

The patch is really simple and should be easy to read, I would happily modify it based on any feedback though. Also I made the patch using git diff but I can use any method more convenient for the Audacious devs.
