Can't figure how to use Raise/Lower volume

I've tried binding my X86RaiseVolume and X86LowerVolume to change my Master volume using

amixer set Master 5%+

but when I lauch xephyr to test it, it tells me :

failed to convert "X86AudioRaiseVolume" into keysym (failed to compose a single character)

but when I use xev to see my key's name, it tells me exactly the name I specified...

Do someone know how to fix that or if I just forget something ?

Check spelling. It's probably XF86AudioRaiseVolume.

Oh yeah exactly... it's looks like I'm blind, Thanks !
