[kde] [hardy] print screen button does not work

Bug Description

In Kubuntu 8.04 alpha three with KDE4, the printscreen button fails to do anything.

Computer Specs:
hp tx1000z
2.2 ghz AMD Turion TL-64
2 Gigs RAM
120 GB HDD

when i try to configure the keyboard shortcuts, everything becomes very glitchy.

For example, when I try to click on things, it selects the window as a whole and i can only drag windows around.

Print Screen I don't think is mapped by default and that is more than likely the problem. I had mapped my Func+PrtSc to open KSnapShot as it had in KDE 3. This will probably all be completed by the distributions eventually once KDE 4 levels out and stables itself a bit more. Thank you for this report!

In KDE 3, print screen was set up in Kubuntu to launch ksnapshot with kubuntu_97_khotkeys_alt_print_shortcut.diff in kdebase. This needs to be done in KDE 4 as well.

Looking at https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=122288 I don't think upstream is going to do it.

Apologies if I shouldn't have marked this one as a duplicate (since this is already "triaged"), but there was an earlier report with similar content. Please reverse the action if you think it more appropriate.

In Kubuntu using KDE3 it work fine by default. I think it would be great that in the intrepid release it will work again, I think it's not a difficult think to do.

I guess you will provide a debdiff? Considering it isn't difficult anyway...
