Description: It is a weird bug. I can only see it on my desktop computer - my laptop one is ok. I reinstalled from scratch one week ago an archlinux with testing repository enabled.

When I try to use PrintScreen in Gnome 3.4 to do a screenshot, nothing happens. No flash, no sound, no screenshot saved.

When I launch gnome-screenshot from command line, it works. It is not a keyboard issue, switching keyboard doesn't fix the problem. Pure systemd based if it is important to add.

Gnome was added using : pacman -S gnome gnome-extra gnome-utils

As I'm using a nvidia GT 210 graphic card, I tried both nouveau and nvidia driver. Nothing changed.

Tried to bind another shortcut to launch gnome-screenshot : no more luck. Tried to create another bind with PrintScreen : nothing.

Logs seems to be completely unuseful : not a single error message. Any ideas ?

Additional info:
xorg-server : 1.13.0-2
gnome-screenshot : 3.4.1-1

Steps to reproduce: just have a fully archlinux with a fully installed gnome with testing repository enabled
This task depends upon

From what I see on the Arch general mailing list keymapping does work with KDE and testing. I assume this to be a Gnome issue.

Good guess. I tried - a weird idea - to upgrade to gnome-unstable, and PrintScreen key is working again ! Looks like something with last xorg-server in testing is "busting" keyboard with gnome 3.4.

Sorry for the not "technical" speech, but I tried to use human language.
