    popup when you press the printscreen button

    One recent change to Trusty that I am very, very grateful for is the popup when you press the printscreen button. It asks if you want to save the screenie.

    Before I would accidentally hit that button several times a day because it is very close to the backspace button on my keyboard.
    I would wind up with a bunch of unwanted screenies in my downloads folder that I would then have to cull.

    Pretty sure I am not the only one that likes this change.

    Is that new? I've had it for quite some time but I do not know if that is from some ppa or mainline...

    I just got it in an update within the last few days or it could have came on the ISO I recently installed. My previous install was January 9th I believe.
    But yes I just noticed it on my system in the past few days.

    Definitely not here. I have had to clean up the screenshots taken when accidentally touching the key beside backspace forever it seems.
    I would bump that key and hear a sound like a flashbulb going off knowing I had another one in my downloads folder. There was never before a popup asking if I wanted to save it.
    I like it is happening now though for sure.

    Re: popup when you press the printscreen button

    Two scenarios comes to my mind:
    1. I'm remembering wrongly (would not be the first time to happen)...
    2. There is a switch that either me (turned it on) or You (turned it off) hit at random and now it is back to (possibly new) default with upgrade... I'll investigate that scenario once i get some spare time for that...
    I'm sorry for all this off-topic provoked by me
    Update₁:
    Code:
    $ gnome-screenshot --interactive
    is the answer... I might have used this all the time, I'll investigate further...

    Re: popup when you press the printscreen button

    Last I checked which was some time ago Gnome didn't offer interactive on PrtSc, so maybe the 'new' behavior' in flashback is from the recent switch in gnome-panel as mentioned in other thread -
    gnome-panel (1:3.8.0-1ubuntu9) trusty; urgency=low

    * Revert changes to 41_classic_layout.patch introduced in -1ubuntu4,
    this causes two keyboard indicators to be visible.
    * Identify as Unity, again (LP: #1224217).
    * Use unity-settings-daemon instead of gnome-settings-daemon.
    * Add gnome-flashback-services.desktop to autostart indicators.
    * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.5, no changes needed.

    I know I didn't do anything to change the behavior.

    Now that makes sense as it seems that is about when it occurred.
