A few months ago I've pointed out that the commit does not work with GNOME 3.26.2 (Fedora 27). It also doesn't work with GNOME 3.28.1 (Fedora 28).

As a workaround for Audacious 3.9 and GNOME >= 3.26 I went with a single-line fix as incorporated into the following patch. The top part of that patch is for something else, avoiding dbus activation of the g-s-d daemons on non-GNOME systems:

So, by default, Audacious 3.10-beta1 gnomeshortcuts plugin does not work yet:

  • (audacious:26570): WARNING **: 01:34:59.140: Could not grab media player keys: The name org.gnome.SettingsDaemon was not provided by any .service files
    WARNING [start_plugin]: GNOME Shortcuts failed to start.

I'm guessing this breaks compatibility with GNOME < 3.26; is that true? If so, that's okay with me, but we can strip out some of the fallback code in that case.

I don't use any recent version of GNOME (and have zero interest in doing so) which is why I haven't followed up on this until now. But I would be happy to merge a patch or pull request.
