Just in case someone else stumbles upon this issue, I managed to address my media keys issue with elementaryos loki by using dconf-editor and xbindkeys.
First to identify your keys in terminal type sudo xbindkeys -k and press the the bind key on your keyboard and/or click under the window. You can use one of the two lines after "NoCommand"
in ~/.xbindkeysrc ...
The default one is gnome-screenshot and as far as I can tell it respects the HIG guidelines (see window decorations).
Looking through 3rd-party solutions specifically developed for elementary OS, there's a similar tool which makes use of a dark theme.
There is also a request to pull it in as the new default screenshot tool in the next release of ...
Building on @Fratink's answer, I ran these commands to fix the issue. (For some reasons, the dconf-editor wasn't working for me.)
gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.media-keys volume-down AudioLowerVolume
gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.media-keys volume-up AudioRaiseVolume
gsettings set org.gnome....
I've used ScreenCloud in the past and liked it a lot. It's open source and the maintainer was pretty responsive when I had questions and suggestions.
And it's pretty versatile, too. Its features include:
3 shortcuts which take a screenshot of different areas areas (full screen, a specific window, or an area you select by dragging a rectangle)
The screenshot-tool was moved to the elementary's Launchpad, so what you should execute if you want the latest version is:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elementary-os/daily
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade screenshot-tool
sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:elementary-os/daily
The installation instructions are outdated. I hope that @Ravan is going ...
After a little research and with the help of my Ask Ubuntu friends,
It is clear that there is no PPA with that name.(at present)
The OP might have hidden/deleted the PPA.
After compile (by my AU friend)
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:fabiozaramella/screenshot-tool
[sudo] password for :
Cannot add PPA: 'ppa:~fabiozaramella/ubuntu/screenshot-tool'.
I reuse the answer from here, with small changes
From the command line, run the command sudo apt-get install dconf-editor
Or click here to install from the Ubuntu Software Center:
Install via the software center http://hostmar.co/software-banner
Press Super + T and type dconf-editor

You can not tweak the quality of your screenshot, it only captures your screen or region (as is, the only quality adjustement you can use is the filetype used when you save your document).
If you need to modify your screenshot, you should use additional softwares such as Gimp or Krita
(I do not see your issue in the provided capture.)
Go to your Terminal and with the command screenshot-tool --help you can see all the available options.
Then you can define your personal Keyboard-Shortcut in Switchboard > Keyboard > Custom ...
I do not know how i can set a specified destination but for me, with the following shortcuts, screenshot-tool saves automatically in ~/Pictures/Screenshots
Maybe you will like these options.
Resizer - Quickly resize images from the context menu
A simple image resizer that resizes one or more images, usable from the context menu or as a standalone app.
Image Optimizer - Simple lossless image compression
Use custom screenshot tool such as Shutter. If you look in the preferences - You can predefine multiple settings like resolution and compression ratio.
Here is how you can install it.
Add repository by typing (in the terminal):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:shutter/ppa
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install shutter
Instead of using xbind keys as @GZgidnick suggested, you can also use "AudioRaiseVolume" in dconf-editor instead of the value from xbindkeys as @GZgidnick explains above. Others are:
At least those worked for my Apple Keyboard
Hope that helps!
Please not that with the next release of Gala screenshots will be stored in a ~/Pictures/Screenshots/ folder.
Gala is elementary OS's window manager and the thing that's responsible for taking screenshots.
This was fixed in this PR: https://github.com/elementary/gala/pull/459
Currently we're on Gala version 0.3.2.
You wont be able to take an actual screenshot, although if the error occurs early enough in the shutdown process (before the logger service is stopped and the hdd's have been unmounted) it should be visible in your logs via less /var/log/syslog. If you can't see anything obvious, these answers show various ways to enable more thorough logging.
This could be coused by a lot of things.
Your firewall might be blocking it (not really likely)
You might have no internet connection
The repository might be deleted or renamed (or it might just not exists)
This community is the wrong place for reporting issues, sorry. If you want to report an issue with the developers, you can do that as described in How can I report an issue with elementary OS to the developers?
Unfortunately, elementary OS Luna is not actively developed anymore. While the operating system is still secure (as the Ubuntu base still delivers ...
In Juno, there's a shortcut section for screenshots. It includes several shortcut options. Shift + PrintScreen lets you select an area to grab:
(You can see from the screenshot I started with disabling the default shortcut, but I'm going to re-enable it, as the point in changing it was to get the functionality of the Shift + PrintScreen shortcut.)
Follow @r3bl steps but use this command:

The default screenshot tool of elementary OS offers the possibility to record only a portion of the screen or just the current running app. Have a look at the keyboard options in the system settings. There is a section just for screenshots with all possible hotkeys.
