If you're running Gnome, you could take advantage of the [many Gnome extensions}( available to you, including screenshot tools. It seems to me that installing/running a screenshot tool through Wine is a very heavy (from a resources perspective) solution.

You can substitute any screenshot tool of choice by redefining the PrtScr key.

  • Go to Settings - Keyboard and select "View and customize shortcuts"

  • In the "Keyboard shortcuts" dialog, open the "Screenshots" section. When the "Set shortcut" dialog appears, hit BackSpace to clear the key assignment.

  • Return to the "Keyboard Shortcuts" dialog. Open the section "Custom shortcuts".

  • Click the "Add Shortcut" button. In the "Add Custom Shortcut" dialog, provide a name, the command to launch your screenshot tool, then assign PrtScr as the shortcut.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
