View Full Version : [kubuntu] disable ksnapshot bind to PrintScreen button

March 8th, 2010, 04:43 AM
Kubuntu Jaunty is having trouble with the ksnapshot infinite loop bug (http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=166190). This is where one press of the Printscreen key causes ksnapshot to repeatedly start instances of itself, soon using up all system resources. This trouble appears to have started since a recent system update.

How can I remove the binding that links the PrintScreen key to ksnapshot?
I'd prefer to not have to remove ksnapshot, as it is still useful from kmenu.

system settings > input actions > preset actions > un-check printscreen.

I searched through lots of pages in system settings, but didn't find that one (and search doesn't find it either).

your welcome, also if you view over to right pane' you will have options to change keys or command.
