    Default Can't take screenshots

    Opensuse 11.1

    Pressing print screen opens an error box saying "No command 33 has been defined".

    I think Print screen will not work, you can use KSnapshot software.

    xvidcap or qt-recordmydesktop might help

    but ksnapshot will run fro a terminal or you can re-configure the keys in desktop settings

    I looked at the keyboard shortcuts and "Take Screenshot" was set to "print" which is the correct application. I also have a program called "Take Screenshot" which is perfect. But why isn't it using it?!

    Probably you altered some settings. Try setting everything back to defaults.

    Otherwise you can start the screenshot from the menu.

    Theres nothing to set to default. All the settings seem to be correct. I liked at the settings for gnome-screenshot which is the "Take Screenshot" app and it is configured correctly. I need to find some place to manually set the print screen to do the command "gnome-screenshot".

    This caused by wrong keyboard configuration. You don't need to set another hot-key, PrintScreen will also work. Start Sax2 or keytouch and select a compatible keyboard.
    Good luck.

    This is so confusing. I have the same layout I've been using since 11.0. The button is registered, if I go into the keyboards shortcut and change the "Take Screenshot" hotkey, and press the "Print" button, it actually registers it as the "Print" button as it should. But again it feels like saying that command 33 hasn't been defined.

    Any other ideas? I really don't know what to try anymore, it's such a bizarre error.
