Configuring Ubuntu 12.04 to take screenshot areas with shortcuts

MacOSX has Command-Shift-4 to take a screenshot area.

You can do the same with Ubuntu...

The instructions are listed below.  The confusing part is that you add the Name/Command and then assign the keyboard shortcut by clicking on the level after adding the entry.

  1. Open System Settings -> Keyboard settings -> Shortcuts
  2. Select Custom Shortcuts(you can go to Screenshot-s too and it will work)
  3. Click +
  4. Fill fields
    • Name to Take a screenshot of area
    • Command to gnome-screenshot -a or shutter -s(if u prefer shutter)
  5. click OK
