I already tried both Shift+Ctrl+print and Shift+SupKey+print but nothing seems to happen. Already visited here Lubuntu keyboard shortcut for menu with no result.

  • Which version of Lubuntu are you using? – DK Bose Apr 12 '18 at 16:25
  • I guess it depends upon what hardware you are using as well. On my Dell there is a key for print screen which works quite well. – Rex Apr 12 '18 at 16:40

Did you check your home directory? When I hit print screen (in Lubuntu 17.10) I get no indication that anything happened, but when I look in my home dir, the desktop picture is there.)

  • yes printscreen takes a screenshot by default but does not provide any notification. – ianorlin Apr 12 '18 at 19:33
  • Shift+Sup K+Print K! I found the shots in the home directory; it doesen't seem to work well, tough: taking shots with that fold opened I can see it only works once out of two/three...better than nothing, anyway! – Vallu Apr 13 '18 at 8:19

there may be a setting in LXDE but you could just bind any key to scrot in ~/.config/openbox/rc.xml (or possibly lxde-rc.xml for lxde sessions)

from /etc/xdg/openbox/rc.xml look for <keyboard>

<!-- Keybindings for running applications -->
<keybind key="W-e">
  <action name="Execute">
