Bug Description

After installing Shutter and configuring to capture Print and <Alt>Print via Preferences, gnome-screenshot is still intercepting those keys for taking screenshots. As noted in the Shutter Preferences dialog, Gnome Compatibility is enabled.

When checking Gnome Compatibility in CCSM, the command for "Take a screenshot" is indeed "/usr/bin/shutter --full" and the command for "Take a screenshot of a window" is "/usr/bin/shutter --select", however Shutter is still not called when using the keyboard to take screenshots.

I'm taking a guess that the bug is in compiz-gnome, but I don't know for sure.
