The media-keys plugin is not working. That makes every custom keyboard shortcut, as well as any multimedia key, non functional.

Additional info:
* Version: gnome-settings-daemon 3.4.2-1
* Running the program with `--debug` it prints:

(gnome-settings-daemon:3501): media-keys-plugin-DEBUG: No Xinput2 support, disabling plugin

Steps to reproduce:

Configure a custom keyboard shortcut (in the gnome control panel, keyboard applet) and then press the associated key. Nothing happens.

Proposed solution:

After some research, it seems that is has been solved in gnome-settings-daemon 3.6. The solution should be easily backported (please see the attached file).

Thank you in advance.

This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Won't implement
Additional comments about closing:  GNOME 3.6 is in gnome-unstable, we won't fix 3.4 as 3.6 will be in extra soon.
