Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 80097
PrintScreen keybinding not working
Last modified: 2016-04-18 05:38:46 EDT
Using 8.1b2 on an upcoming HP desktop (nvidia and intel chipsets), the Gnome
Desktop Screen Capture applet is not present/does not function.
Action by: Marcg.Barber
This is Issue Tracker 12521
Is it not present, or is it broken?
I don't think it exists anymore, it was replaced by the "take a screenshot" menu
item (not visible in our default config) and the "take a screenshot" keybinding
(PrintScreen I believe).
If it's just not there I believe that's notabug, deliberate gnome.org decision.
In any case changing it should be done on gnome.org level.
If it's there but doesn't work, please reopen the report.
CUSTOMER HP BELIEVES THIS IS A RED HAT PROBLEM rather than a "works as designed"
The applet in question is gnome-panel-screenshot. While the applet exists, the
keybinding(PrintScreen) does not. The applet can be run from the commandline
and does function.
Re-mapping this functionality using the "gnome-keybinding-properties" app to
another unused key allows this functionality to work.
If you map/re-map the PrintScreen key to the Take a Screenshot functionality,
you will be unable to take a screenshot.
Oh, gnome-panel-screenshot isn't an applet, it's just an application.
Marking as dup of 80373 (80373 is newer than this bug, but it's public, and
to mark the dup the other direction I'd have to mark this one public)
