Screenshot bug - wont save screenshots in Linux Lite

I have been using Linux like program Linux Lite for an entire week. At this point I am just checking out its possibilities.

When I loaded Linux Lite from bootable USB- I could take and save screenshots without any problems.
After installing the LL onto my hard drive, I couldn't save any of my screenshots? It freezes and I have to kill it.

I read that this is solution:

Removing ~/.config/xfce4/xfce4-screenshooter solves this

How on earth am I supose to do this?

~/ is command line shorthand for your users home directory. ~/ = /home/<your user name here>

.config is a hidden folder in your home directory. You can see from the command line with the ls command. ls -a will show the hidden files. Midnight commander will show the hidden files by default. Other file managers may require you to select the View menu and select the View Hidden Files item to see the hidden files.

xfce4 is a folder in .config.

xfce4-screenshooter is a file in xfce4.

To delete the file from the command line, open a terminal and issue these commands:
cd ~/.config/xfce4; rm xfce4-screenshooter

Note the semicolon. It is a seperator which seperates the two commands and allows you to issue the two commands on one line.

Hope this helps you.

PS: welcome to LQ.
