Does Tomahawk support Global Media Keys?

  • Yes we support global media keys, depending on your environment. OS X & Windows are natively supported, for Linux it is specific to your desktop environment. For example,
    • KDE: there is a hotkeys file
    • Gnome needs to be manually setup via command line parameters (e.g. --pause, see --help)
