gnome – change default screenshot program

Default screenshot program is easy to use and does the job.

If you want to go slightly forward, such as selecting screenshot area, editing screenshot and so on, you should give a go to “shutter” as an alternative.


  1. install shutter:
    sudo apt-get install shutter
  2. set up shutter as default application
    1. go to keyboard shortcuts
    2. under tab “Customs Shortcuts” create a new shortcut running “shutter -s”, as per below
    3. assign the print-screen button as activation button for this shortcut, as per below
