Print Screen key doesn't work after upgrade to UP5

Postby DougB on Fri Oct 05, 2012 10:19 am

My Print Screen key would take a screenshot of whatever was on the monitor with every version of LMDE up to UP4.
Now after upgrading to UP5 it no longer works. I get a message "No command 33 has been defined".

What can I do about this?

Same here

It seems related with metacity/mutter:

And it is a bug of Gnome 3.4:

I have solved it with gconf-editor. I have added the key apps/metacity/keybinding_commands/command_33 with the string value gnome-screenshot -i

It works now, although the screenshot window is different that after upgrading

Did you install meta cinnamon or mate as instructed in the up5 information?

I know its solved now, but this should solve your issues.

naughty_bit, I didn't see your post till afterwards.
I noticed the instruction to install meta cinnamon only after reporting the bug; then installed meta cinnamon and mate without re-checking Print Screen.
i added command 33 in gonf-editor (which wasn't there after meta cinnamon installation) as suggested by escolar; and of course, it worked.
