Howto activate "Print Screen" button in LXDE?

I've tried this:

You probably do not have the software installed. In my opinion a screenshot that does not take subregion shots is garbage. Last time I installed it, xfce4-screenie took subregions, and Faststone Image Viewer (via Wine) does. Gnome-screenshot does not.

This problem is solved!
Using this script for scrot /usr/bin/screenshot.sh:
Code: Select all
#!/bin/bash
scrot '%Y-%m-%d--%s_$wx$h_scrot.png' -e 'mv $f ~/Desktop'

and add these lines in ~/.config/openbox/lxde-rc.xml:
Code: Select all
<keybind key="Print">
<action name="Execute">
<command>/usr/bin/screenshot.sh</command>
</action>
</keybind>
seems to work well now.
