You're right, it won't work. Even on n810.

The reason is that keyboard shortcuts are disabled when there's no
keyboard available; there's no point in wasting space by displaying the
shortcuts when you don't have a keyboard to actually use them. See

We pretty much overlooked the keys on the outside, sorry :-(

You can always use the "key-press-event" signal on toplevel window for
handling the special hardware keys.

(You can toggle the keyboard shortcuts with /apps/osso/gtk/enable-accels
and /apps/osso/gtk/enable-mnemonics GConf keys though be aware that
input methods will overwrite the values when the availability of
hardware keyboard changes.)
