[ Bug reported originally on <https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=799627>. ]

xbindkeys does not seem to work with GTK 3.0 programs.  I am using a computer without Page Up/Down keys, so I have bindings to use combinations Alt Gr + Up/Down as a replacement.  This works perfectly on GTK 2 programs, but not on GTK 3.

Here are my bindings:

# PageUp and PageDown are mapped as Alt Gr-UP and Alt Gr-DOWN
"xvkbd -xsendevent -text '\[Page_Down]'"
m:0x80 + c:116
Mod5 + Down

"xvkbd -xsendevent -text '\[Page_Up]'"
m:0x80 + c:111
Mod5 + Up

An easy way to test this is to install the Epiphany browser (which links against GTK 3.0, at least on Debian testing), and try to Page Up/Down some webpage.

I am reporting this bug against xbindkeys, but it may be a problem with libgtk-3-0.
