I installed Shutter then removed it, and now Print Screen and Alt+Print Screen shortcuts are no longer triggering screenshots with gnome-screenshot. How do I restore this setting?


Open gconf-editor and change the following keys back to this:

/apps/metacity/keybinding_commands/command_screenshot => /usr/bin/gnome-screenshot

/apps/metacity/keybinding_commands/command_window_screenshot => /usr/bin/gnome-screenshot --window

gconf-editor edits being made

If you don't have gconf-editor Install gconf-editor yet just install it from the software center.

Go to System->Preferences->Keyboard Shortcuts and see if the entries for 'Take a screenshot' and 'Take a screenshot of a window' are present.

Also try

sudo apt-get remove --purge shutter

to remove any leftover configuration.
