Thanks Juan, that fixed my problem.

I'd like to point out again that  under control center -> Regional & 
Accessibility -> Keyboard Shortcuts -> Global Shortcuts -> Miscellaneous, 
these settings are defined, but  myself and several users from the 
open-SuSE-user mailing list can confirm that they do not work:

      Window Screenshot    alt+print
      Desktop Screenshot    ctrl+print

Someone pointed out that:

Maybe this is a bad default setting?

Should I file a bug report?
