Solus Budgie - screenshot function key issue

The screenshot shortcut currently does not work with Solus Budgie 3.9999 on Star Labs laptops. This guide will talk you through how to resolve this issue.

1 Open keyboard Settings

Open the Budgie Launcher and click on Settings. On the left menu, navigate to:

Devices > Keyboard

2 Change the current shortcut

The first thing to do is to change the existing screenshot shortcut. Scroll down the list until you find Save a screenshot to Pictures. This will be currently mapped to Print.

Click Save a screenshot to Pictures and you will be prompted to set a new key for this shortcut.

We recommend using the F12 key as its unlikely to interfere with anything but you can chose any unused key.

Next, scroll down to the bottom of the list and click the + icon.

Enter the name of the custom shortcut as Screenshot and the command as:


4 Set the new key

Then click on Set Shortcut. Press the Screenshot function key to set the new shortcut.
