Disable Gnome screenshot sound

So whenever I take a screenshot in Manjaro Gnome, there is a shutter sound along with it. I tried to find options to disable it but could not do so. So how do I disable it?

just execute:

sudo mv /usr/share/sounds/freedesktop/stereo/camera-shutter.oga /usr/share/sounds/freedesktop/stereo/camera-shutter.bak

There! Gone!

:grin:

Thanks. It solved the problem. :smiley:
Could you please explain what that command did? I would really like to learn.

  • sudo execute as root
  • mv move
  • /usr/share/sounds/freedesktop/stereo/camera-shutter.oga the camera shutter sound in ogg Vorbis audio format
  • /usr/share/sounds/freedesktop/stereo/camera-shutter.bak backup file in case you want to restore the sound in the future.

Basically, the file that gets played by the Gnome screenshot app just got removed from under its nose and it’s not smart enough to use the backup file instead.

Result: No stinkin’ sound! (which is what you wanted.)
