  Neither PrintScreen, SHIFT+PrintScreen, nor CTRL+PrintScreen keyboard
  shortcuts work on Trusty

Status in unity-settings-daemon package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Running Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit with the latest updates. Version of unity-
  settings-daemon is 14.04.0+14.04.20140414-0ubuntu1. Possible that this
  bug either affects unity-settings-daemon, gnome-screenshot, or
  something else.

  I expected PrintScreen to take a screenshot. Ditto for
  CTRL+PrintScreen and ALT+PrintScreen. All my settings under Keyboard
  Shortcuts are normal.

  Everything worked for every prior release of Ubuntu with the Print key
  taking a screenshot. Also, neither CTRL+PrintScreen nor
  SHIFT+PrintScreen work at all. If you reassign the keys for taking a
  screenshot, to any other keys, gnome-screenshot works as expected.
  Assigning either of those three key/key combinations to any command
  does not work. ALT+PrintScreen strangely enough works without issue.
  Running gnome-screenshot from the terminal also works without issue.
  Unlike the other bugs I've seen that sound similar, I do not hear a
  sound at all when pressing any of those three key combinations.
  Toggling the magic sysrq key does nothing for this issue either.
