I have a Xiaomi Notebook Air, and my PrtScn Key do not work.

xinput test dont catch any event when I press PrtScn.

So i don't know if I can do something. I'm asking for your help ! (sorry for my bad english)

  • Okay, so that bug is know and we don't have any solution for the moment I think.

  • I'm afraid so. But you have a nice application for screenshots in elementary more complete than PrtScn. In any case, I'm also used to PrtScn and waiting for that bug to be solved. Nov 8, 2016 at 17:08
  • I've found this workaround but haven't tried myself: elementaryos.stackexchange.com/questions/712/… Nov 8, 2016 at 17:13
  • I have tested but the bug is that the native touch is not reconized by xinput so .... I can bind this to another key but that is not my objective (Currently I launch manualy gnome-screenshot)

  • Then the only solution is wait to see if the developers fix this in next upgrades. I could live without it but I'm used to the keyboard shortcut too. Nov 8, 2016 at 17:24
