I went back and reread that entire thread once again, and I repeat, the DEFAULT save-to directory for the keyboard activated PrintScreen is ALWAYS ~/Pictures/
even after saving a previous snapshot to /Desktop/
it defaults back to Pictures every single time....
in the 1st thread I initiated on this, we did NOT make the PrtScrn button default to Desktop.
I want the Default to always go to Desktop, no where else, and /Pictures is not acceptable because there are too many Date/Time/Stamped names in there already....
and, as I said, that requires that I activate NEMO to find the Pictures folder, and then sort it by Modified time, so that the most recent screenshot goes to the top.
Okay, I looked at
but that is just another utility that gets in the way of selecting a screenshot.....
What everyone is overlooking is that I am trying to capture a screenshot of a Menu.... and once a Menu is up, if you touch any key, or click the mouse anywhere, besides touching the PrtScreen kybd button, that Menu will disappear.....
I don't need to upload directly to Imgur, as that would include stuff that I don't want, I want the default PrtScreen to go to Desktop, no where else. that way I can see it immediately and open it with GIMP to select out just a portion of the total screen to capture a Menu..... The Cinnamon ScreenShot I already have tied to the Panel, so it is easy to click that and capture just a portion of a static screen, but if a Menu is UP, the menu disappears when activating ScreenShot.
So, to reiterate, I want the PrtScreen button snapshot to default to Desktop, and my earlier thread which was referenced never did get that done.
With the current Kernel 4.15.0-24 PrtScrn always defaults to ~/Pictures in-spite of me always selecting Desktop. And every prior Kernel has also:
I never, ever, select any "save to" folder other than Desktop.
Your gsettings command should have already done it.
only effects the Menu activated Screenshot utility, it does NOT change the default for
I recognize that a lot of people use the desktop as a Menu to go to places they use a lot, but I keep that stuff on the Panel. I keep the Desktop totally clear and I use it as a repository for Snapshots.....
The instant that a snapshot is renamed, and edited to contain on the portion of the picture that I want, it is removed from the Desktop... usually to the trash as I upload most of them to Imgur after editing.
a final image to prove my point. This image was captured with a Camera to show that the
Keyboard activated screen snapshot utility always defaults to ~/Pictures/
