Ubuntu – How to disable the screenshot sound


I am not holding a camera, I do not need to hear a shutter sound to know I pressed the Print Screen key.

Other suggestions on the site encourage people to disable event sounds, but I use these.
So it something I can hack out of the sound theme?

Best Answer

Either disable system sound effects or, I am assuming you want to disable only the screen shot sound, move or rename /usr/share/sounds/freedesktop/stereo/camera-shutter.oga

sudo mv /usr/share/sounds/freedesktop/stereo/camera-shutter.oga /usr/share/sounds/freedesktop/stereo/camera-shutter-disabled.oga
