Spectacle is the new screen capture utility for KDE ( Bug 17965 )
Installing it should also associate PrintScreen button with it.
( like it was for ksnapshot in Mageia5 )
Also see "HOWTO Connect PrintScreen key to Spectacle"
( Optimally we should also check how it works when installing other screen capture alternatives, and for other DE . I suggest the last installed should associate with the button? )

No, and that also doesn't make sense and will make the user experience worse. Key bindings are usually provided as a default by the respective desktop environment, and by simply installing another screenshot tool I don't want that to be the new default tool. Same for a text editor or web browser or whatever else I may be testing.
Here it seems the default key binding for spectacle is simply missing, this was also reported e.g. here: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=206600
I can confirm the bug on a Cauldron installed yesterday. And somehow in the khotkeys settings (System settings > Shortcuts > Custom shortcuts) I have no "Screenshot" section, even though I have the /usr/share/khotkeys/spectacle.khotkeys file installed.
Still valid 6_s1
For manual setup of printscreen key see https://forums.mageia.org/en/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=11086
Is it still valid with Plasma 5.7 and KDE Applications 16.04.3 ?
Fixed, thanks :)
In KDE System Settings, section Shortcuts, section "Custom web shortcuts" (or what it is in english/your language), there is now a new group "Screenshots" containing shortcuts to spectacle for various screenshot types.
Probably because i already had made one shortcut using the Print(screen) button manually, that new shortcut had no button associated.
Tomorrow i will check on a non manually modified install and if not OK there repoen. )
