In this case also, you will unable to close your Zekr normally. It will result with force quit require.
To clear this problem, we need to install Oracle JDK 7.
To install please follow this step,

First of all add this repo,

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java

then update,

sudo apt-get update

then install java,

sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer

after completed you can check java version using this command,

java -version

the latest version for now is,

java version "1.7.0_21"
I hope now you can control you Zekr audio player volume up or down without error.

So, all you have to do is go to Ubuntu Software Center, then search for libwebkitgtk then select and install the libwebkitgtk-1.0-0. Example on the screenshot below.
Installation finished.
You will able to run Zekr without any problem.
I'm do this on Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail gnome session. Hope this work too on previous version and other session.
