[Bug 1313754] Re: [HP Pavilion dv6-6c80el Entertainment Notebook PC] PrintScreen button does nothing.


Dear Christopher M. Penalver (penalvch),

Sorry for not replying earlier.
I could check only now this bug.

I tested both Ubuntu 13.04 and 13.10, and both worked the printscreen command by using the printscreen button.
However, on the version 13.10, the key combination fn+del also calls the printscreen command.
Using Ubuntu 14.04 only fn+del works.

Hope this can help somewhat.
