I’ve switched some weeks ago to Linux Mint and Cinnamon from Xfce and in these days I’m a kind of exploring the new desktop.

I’m used to take screenshot for work, totake some notes and so I installed the Cinnamon screenshot applet.

Screenshot applet

 

After some day using it I was a bit bored by the screenshots saved in Pictures folder by default so I traied to change this behaviur.

Looking into the applet js file i discover that the applet is based on gnome-screenshot and so I find an easy solution to my problem.

You can edit the with dconf-editor the configuration string

org.gnome.screenshot.auto-save-directory

dconf

ad set you favorite screenshot folder!
