Printscreen doesn't work on xfce

When I press the key I get : failed to execute child process ‘‘xfce4-screenshooter’’ ( No such file or directory)
PLease step by step help if possible. Thanks

Does Screenshot open from the Applications Menu? If it does, can you take a screenshot? My Print Screen Button doesn’t do anything and I am not certain that it is supposed to.

Cntrl-P in FF works and I can save to pdf as I have cups-pdf installed.

Is xfce4-screenshooter installed?

And as the fellow above asked, you probably don’t have xfce4-screenshooter installed.

Look for it in pamac-gtk, or through the terminal with:

pamac search xfce4-screenshooter

If next to the package that appears it is not written or marked as installed, install it

T+ = See you later

I get:
pamac search xfce4-screenshooter
xfce4-screenshooter-git 1.9.2.r3.gd789db8-1 AUR
Plugin that makes screenshots for the Xfce panel.
xfce4-screenshooter 1.9.9-2 extra
An application to take screenshots

How do I install it?

OK, Found out. Thanks, installed it doing : pamac install xfce4-screenshooter ( for someone as dumb as me) and it works.

Thank you all :slight_smile:

Nobody is dumb, just some have more time to use
