Bug Description

fresh install i386.

on keyboard, alt + Prn Scrn or only Prnt Scrn are not printing screen as expected.

scrot from terminal is working as expected though.

maybe the problem is at lubuntu-rc.xml or at Default Applications for LXsession.

lubuntu-rc.xml says:
 <!-- Take a screenshot of the current window with scrot when Alt+Print are pressed -->
    <keybind key="A-Print">
      <action name="Execute">
        <command>lxsession-default screenshot window</command>

<!-- Launch scrot when Print is pressed -->
    <keybind key="Print">
      <action name="Execute">
        <command>lxsession-default screenshot</command>

on the other hand, Default Applications for LXsession says:
Screenshot manager: scrot

pls, could you try to fix once newcomers will not be able to print screen as expected?

best regards,
