I am a big fan of Mate desktop. Simple and very functional.
But there one thing I'd address to the mate desktop: its screenshot utility is too poor.
The very single feature I miss there is being able to take a screenshot of only a part of the screen. It is apparently available with
gnome-screenshot as from this post: What screenshot tools are available?
Is there any way I could replace
sudo apt-get install gnome-screenshot but then if I try to launch it, I have
▶ gnome-screenshot ** Message: Unable to use GNOME Shell's builtin screenshot interface, resorting to fallback X11.
Besides, I really need the shortcuts (the whole point is to achieve it in two clicks), so even if I get it working, I'll also need this.
FYI, I was using shutter earlier, but removed it because it was lacking the desktop shortcuts and sometimes very buggy (need to hard shutdown the system).
