How to add user defined screen capture to ParrotOS

Written down, because custom keybindings are nice

Kali has user defined print screen. Parrot doesn’t. Let’s fix that without using the internet.

When I first started using Linux, I googled prettymuch everything. These days I find that the fastest answer is probably already on the terminal. To this end, I frequently lean on apropos; the french term for ‘pertaining to’.

In this situation it yielded exactly what I was looking for. A quick glance at the manpage shows the answer I was looking for in the invocation:

mate-screenshot -a

I navigate to the keyboard shortcuts screen through the gui, and drop in the invocation, and set the keys I want to use. EZPZ, and we’re done.

Very good. Apropos is all the body needs.
