I know that plenty of questions have been asked about multimedia keys, but I'm having trouble finding a solution for my specific problem.

I have a Logitech G110 keyboard, which (besides the macro keys) works fine in Linux; however, the multimedia keys aren't working at all in any media program. The keys are being detected by the Keyboard Shortcuts window but aren't doing anything in any other program. The volume wheel, mute button, mute headphones/microphone buttons, and backlighting all work fine. Only the multimedia keys are malfunctioning.

Is there anything I can do, a tool I can download, some configuration file I can change, to get these working?
