GNOME Screenshot

How to change screenshot save folder in gnome DE for gnome Screenshot?
I tried changing the path in dconf editor, but that didn’t help.

$ gsettings set org.gnome.gnome-screenshot auto-save-directory file:///home/user/Desktop

Edit: I’ll refrain from offering not tested things.
This simple workaround works for me.

gnome-screenshot -a --file=Downloads/Sh$(date +"%Y_%m_%d_%I_%M_%p").jpg

Btw if you create a Custom Keyboard Shortcut exactly:


assigned to PrtSc
the custom auto-save-directory will be used set in dconf-editor

I use this command before and it doesn’t work

Certainly not a bug, but just another new Gnome feature, as the Gnome devs keep them coming…
