I use the Cinnamon desktop environment, but shortcuts like Ctrl + Alt + T for opening the Terminal or Prt Sc for Print Screen don't work.

How can I set these two shortcuts in the Cinnamon desktop environment and other, but these two are the most important for me?

Versions of my software:

  • Debian 9.8 (x86-64)
  • Cinnamon 3.2.7

(From the Cinnamon menu) Preferences --> Keyboard, then click the Shortcuts tab.

  • Thank you @ajgringo619, it was simpler than I thought :) – simhumileco Aug 12 at 19:14

In my system it looks like this:

Applicatios (the Start Menu) -> Settings -> Keyboard -> Application Shortcuts tab -> Add button

And in command input we could to put this:

xfce4-screenshooter -fs '/home/user_name/Images'


For another options look at a xfce4-screenshooter via comand line section.
