    Default How to change default screenshot application

    Open Suse Tumbleweed - KDE plasma


    Just recently shifted from XFCE to KDE. I preferred the XFCE PrntScr ( print screen) application to take screenshot compared to the KDE one which has too many features to my liking and is klunky to use . I installed the XFCE screenshotter using zypper/yast but im not able to figure out how to map it to the print screen key. All tutorials on the internet are for ubuntu only

    In systemsettings (or systemsettings5 if you use the command line) go to the section shortcuts remove spectacle, add your preferred tool and assign the shortcut keys you want.

    Strictly speaking you have not to remove spectacle but you have to make sure that spectacle and the tool of your choice are using different shotcut keys.
