Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2002-12-19 18:35:46 EST
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.

Retitling appropriately.

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)

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 80373 ***
