I followed this advice Default save directory for gnome-screenshot? and installed it as the top answer suggested.

But the "screenshot" does not appear (see image). https://www.dropbox.com/s/ud2p8bv8v3z0w9m/snapshot7.png?dl=0

And here is my installation https://www.dropbox.com/s/c0gnxuead911dzc/snapshot8.png?dl=0

Edit, myabe this should be a different quesiton now, but I looked in the preferences for Ksnapshot and googled for it but could find no way to do it.

What I want to achieve is: each time I press PrtSc or ctrl+prsc I save a file named




and then the URL is pasted to my clipboard.

  • Why are you using gnome-screen shot in a KDE desktop ? – Mark Kirby Aug 24 '14 at 10:51
  • I did not know Ksnapshot "should" be used and gnome screenshot not; I thought that you could prefer one or the other. My bad. – jacob Aug 24 '14 at 12:49
  • @markkirby I updated the question. – jacob Aug 24 '14 at 12:50

For KDE use KSnapshot, it should be installed, if not

sudo apt-get install ksnapshot

If you must use this I think you will need all the libs required for a gnome environment.

sudo apt-get install gnome-shell 

This should help
