There’s a nice little program for taking screenshots available for Windows and Mac called Greenshot. It’s keybound on my Windows installation with Ctrl+Alt+P.
Greenshot isn’t available on Linux. Wanting to have a consistent experience between machines with Linux’ gnome-screenshot, it was fairly easy to bind that program the same way in Linux.
- Launch Settings. You can search for it by pressing the Super key.
- In Settings, go to Devices >> Displays >> Keyboard.
- Scroll to the very bottom. Click the “+”.
- In the Set Custom Shortcut screen, set the Name, Command and Shortcut as shown below. Note that the -ia flag sets the program to start interactively and defaulted to area selection respectively.
You can review the available flags using man.
