Cubieboard2 – Lubuntu – Enabling Print Screen

When I installed Lubuntu on my new Cubieboard2, the print screen was not working.
When I hit the “Print Screen” button I got this message:

I’ve fixed it by installing the scrot application:

sudo apt-get install scrot

If you hit “Print Screen” or “Alt+Print Screen” you will see a new file *_scrot.png in you home directory.
