Where do we post minor bugs? Screenshot is not there

#1 Post by roadapathy » Sat Jan 13, 2018 4:35 pm

Hey all! The keyboard key bindings is off by default. For example, there are no screenshot apps assigned to the key. I have never seen a Linux distro that didn't have a screenshot app assigned. How can we get that into a fix? It would be nice to config all apps and have a choice- Screenshooter is Shutter is awesome but I could never get it configured right. LOL

The other thing, multimedia keyboards don't fully work. My calculator button does nothing. That's very strange. Sure, I can configure this myself but shouldn't it be set by default?

Love MX though. Everything else is just INCREDIBLEEEEEE!

Screenshot is assigned to the Print key by default in MX 17, AS I recall it also was in MX 15 and MX 16.

You don't see one here, either. :p

1) Screenshot app is bound by default to the PrintScreen key.
2) Keyboards are set in Settings > Keyboard (d'uh) > Layout

Both these topics are covered in the handy-dandy Users Manual, easy to find like this:

Alt-F1
Ctrl-F
keyboard (click down a couple)
screenshooter

Yes, mine worked with the print screen key right out of the box.
