This is Issue Tracker 12521

Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2002-12-19 23:35:46 UTC
Is it not present, or is it broken?

I don't think it exists anymore, it was replaced by the "take a screenshot" menu
item (not visible in our default config) and the "take a screenshot" keybinding
(PrintScreen I believe).

If it's just not there I believe that's notabug, deliberate decision.
In any case changing it should be done on level.

If it's there but doesn't work, please reopen the report.

Comment 3 Larry Troan 2003-01-02 23:41:50 UTC
CUSTOMER HP BELIEVES THIS IS A RED HAT PROBLEM rather than a "works as designed"

 The applet in question is gnome-panel-screenshot.  While the applet exists, the
keybinding(PrintScreen) does not.  The applet can be run from the commandline
and does function.

Re-mapping this functionality using the "gnome-keybinding-properties" app to
another unused key allows this functionality to work.

If you map/re-map the PrintScreen key to the Take a Screenshot functionality,
you will be unable to take a screenshot.

Oh, gnome-panel-screenshot isn't an applet, it's just an application.

Retitling appropriately.

Comment 5 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-03 03:11:59 UTC
Marking as dup of 80373 (80373 is newer than this bug, but it's public, and 
to mark the dup the other direction I'd have to mark this one public)

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 80373 ***
