I'm using a Chromebook and this keyboard doesn't have a "Print" button, I'm just confused as to what I would use instead of that for taking a screenshot. Thanks!


There are plenty of terminal apps that will take screenshots without the use of any keyboard function (aside from having a keyboard as input)

My personal favorite is screenfetch as it will print out computer info as well


usage: screenfetch -s

output: Web-Browser Terminal

The default command to take screenshot is actually gnome-screenshot, there's several command-line flags that you can provide in addition to that, such as gnome-screenshot -w for taking a window screenshot. Knowing this you can assign a custom keyboard shortcut via System Settings -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts. I would suggest using AltShiftP since I don't recall any other application using it, however you are free to choose among the myriad of other possible combinations.
