Printscreen

Postby chiefjim » Mon Jan 11, 2010 9:16 pm

Is there a way to get printscreen to allow region copying? I've grown accustomed to that feature when using KDE 3.5. I see KSNAPSHOT in the repository but that is KDE4.
Desktop:
Mint-17.3 Mate 64 bit
Gigabyte H97M-D3H
Intel G3258
Crucial Ballistic Sport 8GB DDR3 1600
2TB HDD WD Black 7200rpm

Laptop:
Acer Aspire AS5552-5898
Mint-17.3 Mate 64 bit
AMD Phenom II Triple-Core N830
4GB Memory DDR3
500GB HDD 5400rpm

Alt-Print Screen will grab a window though if you want something more complex I'd install KSnapshot. You can still install it in Gnome even though it's a KDE application.

You could give Shutter a try: GTK graphical tool.

If you use this app, post back on how well it works or if you like it for other Gnome users to see. **Might be useful for someone else in the future. :idea:


KSnapshot should run as well as long as any needed KDE dependencies are met, like"kdelibs4c2a" or sorts, in order for it to work.

Use apt or your package manager in that case.
