Ubuntu – Gnome-Screenshot error in Ubuntu GNOME 13.10

command linegnomescreenshotshortcut-keys

I recently installed Ubuntu GNOME 13.10 (it came with GNOME 3.8, but I replaced it by GNOME 3.10) and after a few problems, the only one I couldn't solve was the screenshot problem.

When I press the PrtSc key, nothing happens. No sound, no nothing. When I execute it via Terminal by writing "Gnome-Screenshot", it does work and saves a screenshot in my Pictures folder.

I have already tried to re-install the program, but still didn't work. I also tried to create a shortcut with this command line, but still nothing happened. I tried to replace the PrtSc key by another one, just for make sure the problem wasn't in the key, and it still failed.

Can anyone help me?

via terminal

There should be an entire section of the keyboard settings designated to screenshot:

(Run gnome-control-center keyboard shortcuts)

Keyboard Settings

If that fails, gnome-screenshot itself has a control window

(Run gnome-screenshot --interactive)

Gnome Screenshot

Using Gnome 3.8.
