[FIX] Current Window Screenshot (Alt+Print) in Xubuntu 12.04

Problem: In Xubuntu 12.04, the key combination 'Alt+Print' should take a current window screenshot, however it does nothing.

Install

Open a terminal window and run:

# configure the sysrq kernel parameter
sudo sysctl -w kernel.sysrq=0
# optionally, remove the old keyboard shortcut
xfconf-query -c xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts -r -p "/commands/custom/<Alt>Print" 
# set the new keyboard shortcut
xfconf-query -c xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts -n -p "/commands/custom/Sys_Req" -t string -s "xfce4-screenshooter -w"
