FYI - "ksnip" really nice screen capture app with Imgur upload and built-in painter functions

Post by phd21 »

Hello Everyone,

While I was researching other posts for Linux Mint members and for myself, I came across a really nice screen capture application called "ksnip" which can indeed upload to a user's "Imgur" account or to upload to "Imgur" anonymously, and has some built-in painter functions. I have tested this and it does work. It is perfectly alright to have more than one screen capture (print screen) application installed.

I have been in touch with "Damir" the developer who is actively updating and maintaining this program.

"ksnip" v1.3.0 is in the Mint repositories (Software Manager or Synaptic Package Manager (SPM)), but there is a new version 1.4.0 that is available which for now has to be compiled from its source code. The developer is working on creating easier methods of installing updated versions of this application. The new version has an updated painter program built-in including arrows and numbers.

Hope this helps ...

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all !

Hello Everyone,

Update: There is an easy to install Linux AppImage file for the newest versions of Ksnip, or a Deb file for Ksnip version 1.4 (64bit) available now, but the newer version has many new features.

Ksnip Releases
https://github.com/damirporobic/ksnip/releases


For people who do not have a 64-bit computer, or want to compile (create) Ksnip, here are the relatively simple instructions for that. This does not take long to do, only a few mintues.

First Install the basic packages to build and compile software applications (FYI: "wget", "curl", and "git" are for downloading software source code)

Type in, or copy & paste, each line below one by one: Click "Select All" above command, right click the highlighted command, select Copy (or Ctrl+Insert), click in the console terminal window, and right click paste (or Shift+Insert)

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install build-essential cmake cmake-extras extra-cmake-modules wget git curl checkinstall
A lot of software will have their own requirements (dependencies) for other packages that may also need to be installed, which they will usually tell you on their website or in the package's "readme" file.

I know that this application also needs the "libqt5x11extras5" and "libqt5x11extras5-dev" packages installed to compile properly, so install these.

Type in, or copy & paste, each line below one by one: Click "Select All" above command, right click the highlighted command, select Copy (or Ctrl+Insert), click in the console terminal window, and right click paste (or Shift+Insert)

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install libqt5x11extras5 libqt5x11extras5-dev

Click the link below to download the "Ksnip" archive file "ksnip-master.zip" with the application's source code.
https://github.com/DamirPorobic/ksnip/a ... master.zip

OR bring up a console terminal and run the command below which will clone the master source code folder into your home folder that is ready to compile, no need to extract any archive file.

Code: Select all

git clone https://github.com/DamirPorobic/ksnip.git
Bring up your file manager and right-click the "ksnip-master.zip" file select extract here which creates a new folder with "ksnip-master" the Ksnip source code, click to get into that folder, create a new folder "build" to store the compiled software, and get into that, so you should be in the "~/Downloads/ksnip-master/build/" folder, right-click in the white space and select Actions -> Open Terminal here, which brings up a console terminal window in that folder where you can type in the next console terminal commands below to compile and install "Ksnip".

Or from a console terminal prompt use the commands.
Now get into the Ksnip source code folder which is either "ksnip-master" for the archive file or just 'ksnip" using the "git" command.

Code: Select all

cd ksnip-master
or

Code: Select all

cd ksnip

Code: Select all

mkdir build

Code: Select all

cd build
From the "build" folder, Type in, or copy & paste, each line below one by one: Click "Select All" above command, right-click the highlighted command, select Copy (or Ctrl+Insert), click in the console terminal window, and right click paste (or Shift+Insert), after each command completes, repeat the process to run the next command.

Code: Select all

cmake ..

Code: Select all

make
Now install the newly compiled application ...

Code: Select all

sudo make install
Close or Exit the console terminal window and file manager if that is still open.

That's it, "Ksnip" should be in your menu now ...


Hope this helps ...

Hi "aes2011",

You are welcome...

The developer "Damir" seems really nice and cooperative, and is actively updating this application. So, we can expect more features in the future. If you like this application, be sure to say so by thanking him. Any new features anyone wants should add them to the Github account as a feature request.

Hi Everyone,

Happy New Years to everyone !!!

The developer of 'ksnip", Damir, has provided updates to this excellent screen capture (print screen) application including easy to install Linux ".deb" files for 64-bit and 32-bit computers, and with a little help from "probonopd" there is even an AppImage file available now. (FYI: AppImages developed for Linux Mint 18.x based on Ubuntu 16.04 will usually work on Linux Mint 17.x based on Ubuntu 14.04 ...)

Click the link below for downloading the updated "Ksnip" v1.5.x, or a rapidly evolving updated version called "continuous build".
https://github.com/damirporobic/ksnip/releases


Hope this helps ...

Hi Everyone,

The developer of 'ksnip", Damir, has graciously provided more updates to his excellent screen capture (print screen) and image painter application.

My first video tutorial on using some of the features of Ksnip
https://youtu.be/cG5am_x5nAE

You can now scale (resize) images which makes uploading images to this forum easy. Of course, because Ksnip can also upload to the "imgur" image hosting website, you do not need to shrink or scale your images to use in your posts or replies, you can just copy the "direct link" to an image from Imgur and paste that into this forum using the "rimg" tag.
  • Scaling an image: With my current desktop resolution of 1440 x 900 (widescreen), I can scale down any image to 80% of its original size and my images will usually shrink below the 200kb image upload restriction of this forum. Your scale percentage may vary depending upon your desktop resolution, so may have to try various scaling percentages (50%, 60%, etc...) to see what works for you to get your images below 200kb for directly attaching images to a post or reply in this forum. Once you know what that scaling percentage value for scaling your desktop images to fit into this forum, you can use that scale percentage value from then on.
* Ksnip can also open existing images for cropping, resizing (scaling), or for using the painter (annotation) functions, or for uploading to "Imgur". You can also add to most file managers like KDE's Dolphin or Cinnamon's Nemo (files) the command below into a file manager's right-click option for "open with" an image with Ksnip.

Code: Select all

ksnip -e %u
-- In Cinnamon's Nemo file manager, right-click an image file, go to Properties the "open with" tab options, in the enter command box at the bottom add the line above click "add to list".

-- In KDE Dolphin's file Manager right-click an image file, click properties, click "file type options" button, edit the existing ksnip entry or add a new entry for ksnip, on the application tab's command box enter in the command above, click apply/ok.

Another particularly useful new feature is the ability to turn off the "Dynamic Cursor" in the painter options for the various painter tools which gives users a very visible (easy to see) painter tool cursor versus using the Dynamic Tool Cursor which changed with the painter tool size selection, sometimes making the tool cursor so small that it was practically impossible for me to see where the painter tool was on the image if their sizes were below 3px.

Click the link below for downloading the updated "Ksnip" v1.5.x as an AppImage or its source code (tar.gz) to compile and install it yourself. If you use the AppImage, then you may have to update your menu item or shortcut launcher to point to the new Ksnip AppImage file.
https://github.com/damirporobic/ksnip/releases

FYI: If for whatever reasons you are having issues with AppImages make sure "fuse" is installed from the Software Manager or Synaptic Package Manager (SPM), and consider installing the application below.
AppImageLauncher:
Helper application for Linux distributions serving as a kind of "entry point" for running and integrating AppImages. "AppImageLauncher makes your Linux desktop AppImage ready™". Under Installation click "release page" download the regular Linux deb file for Linux Mint 18.x or earlier and the Bionic for Linux Mint 19.x, then double-click it to install it, may want to restart your computer before using this the first time.
https://github.com/TheAssassin/AppImageLauncher

Simple console terminal commands to compile and install Ksnip wrote: For people who do not have a 64-bit computer, or want to compile (create) Ksnip and have it installed in your menu, here are the relatively simple instructions for that. This does not take long to do, only a few minutes.

Open a console terminal window and at the command prompt, type in, or copy & paste, each line below one by one: Click "Select All" above command, right-click the highlighted command, select Copy (or Ctrl+Insert), click in the console terminal window, and right click paste (or Shift+Insert), hit enter, repeat this process for each command.

I.a.) Download a small script program file and run it to automatically download, compile, and install Ksnip into Linux Mint 18.x or 19.x. I recommend moving or copying this to your home folder, give yourself permission to run the script file, and running it from there. This can be run again for updates.

ksnip-install.sh
https://mega.nz/#!oUEnFCpZ!RQxMJysR8FV4 ... ZX2Tg-Zjcs

I.b.) Give yourself permission to run this script program.

Code: Select all

chmod a+x ksnip-install*.sh
I.c.) run the command below which runs the ksnip bash installation script program I created.

Code: Select all

bash ksnip-install.sh
OR
II.) Manually run each command

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install build-essential cmake cmake-extras extra-cmake-modules wget git curl checkinstall

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install libqt5x11extras5 libqt5x11extras5-dev
- remove any existing ksnip source code folder

Code: Select all

sudo rm -r ~/ksnip
- download current ksnip source code using "git clone"

Code: Select all

git clone https://github.com/DamirPorobic/ksnip.git

Code: Select all

cd ksnip

Code: Select all

mkdir build

Code: Select all

cd build

Code: Select all

cmake ..

Code: Select all

make

Code: Select all

sudo make install
Close or Exit the console terminal window and file manager if that is still open.

That's it, "Ksnip" should be in your menu now ...

FYI: It is also relatively easy to make Ksnip your default screen capture (print screen) application or to assign a global shortcut like the "pause" key to trigger Ksnip.
Hope this helps ...

Can you please help me out as I do love the program. When I ran just the image file to try it out it was really great; so with CZ I went back to a previous image and started off again but came to that stand still. BTW, it is version 1.5 and I am using Linux Mate 19.2 on a x64 machine.

I don't use "Mate", but you should be able to create your own shortcut using the menu editor that comes with you desktop. That's what I do in xfsc or cinnamon or kde. You'll just need to add an icon of your own.

I created that Apps folder in my home folder and after downloading ksnip-1.6.0-continuous-x86_64.AppImage and then created the keyboard shortcut pointing to the pause button and have got it working fine but can't get it on the menu.

In Mate, right click on your menu > menu editor.

In the Window that opens navigate to the preferred category (e.g. Accessories) and then click New Item.

In the Dialog that opens add your preferred name for the menu entry - e.g Ksnip

Then click the browse button next to the command entry. You'll get a file picker dialog. Navigate to the folder with the Ksnip AppImage in and select the AppImage and then click open. Your command field will then be populated with the full path to the AppImage

Optionally click the icon to select your preferred icon for the menu entry.

Hint - you can grab the offical Ksnip icon from https://github.com/DamirPorobic/ksnip/b ... /ksnip.svg

Once done click OK, then close the menu editor. Your Ksnip entry should be in the menu.

Hi Smurphos, firts of all thanks for the link to the icon image and downloaded that fine. However, the instructions you give about adding Ksnip to the menu is not tying up with what I have here. I get to the menu editor, not quite the way you describe it but get there and select Accessories I do not see any where to add new item. When I click Accessories
Browse-Selection.png
I am only given two choices, Browse Icons and Browse Files. If I select browse Files and browse to /muffy/Apps/ksnip-1.6.0-continuous-x86_64.AppImage/ the page is blank so from there I am stumped. Can you please advise.

Ah, - I've got a different menu editor in my MATE install - mozo, rather than menulibre that is in your screenshot.

So the icon on the top left that is not very visible in your theme is the add button, click on that one and then select add launcher.

You'll get GUI like this
Screenshot at 2019-11-28 14-19-05.png
Click on New Launcher to give it name
Click on the 'A small descritive blurb....' to give it a description.
Click the icon to choose your icon.
Then click the folder icon in the command field to find the path to the AppImage
Click the save icon when you are done.

Hi muffybean,

I just read your post and the good replies to it. Here are my thoughts on this as well.

A.) Ksnip has easy to install Linux ".deb" files for either the Continuous developer v1.6.x or the Stable v1.5 which anyone can save and double-click the deb file to install it. You may want to remove any previous installation of Ksnip to avoid version conflicts.

Linux deb files
Ksnip v1.6.0 Continuous
https://github.com/DamirPorobic/ksnip/r ... inuous.deb

Ksnip v1.5.0 Stable
https://github.com/DamirPorobic/ksnip/r ... -1.5.0.deb

B.) From your reply, it looks like you tried to compile ksnip from their GitHub source code, but something went wrong. It could be that your download of the ksnip source code (git clone ...) did not complete or there was something wrong with it.

C.) AppImage are a great option as well and allows you to use either version or both. But, Ksnip does not have a built-in installation and integration like some other software's AppImages have. You could install the AppImage Launcher helper (see my previous replies) which would help to install and manage software packaged as AppImages including creating a menu launcher shortcut item.

D.) Regarding creating menu items or desktop launchers, each edition of Linux Mint has slightly different methods and or procedures to do that. Sometimes you can just browse or copy the location to the AppImage file and paste that into the menu or desktop launcher shortcut's command box and sometimes you have to put a "./" in front of that path location of the AppImage.

Hope this helps ...

Hi muffybean,

I just updated my last reply.

To uninstall AppImages, you can just delete them and any menu or desktop entries.

To remove installed versions of any software from a deb file or compiling, you can use the "Synaptic Package Manager (SPM)" or the console terminal prompt.

Code: Select all

sudo apt remove ksnip
FYI: You do not need to create a menu item or desktop launcher for invoking (triggering) ksnip as a screenshot tool, just create a new keyboard shortcut (or change an existing one) to the ksnip application or ksnip AppImage file. But, it does help to create a menu item if you want to right-click an existing image from a file manager and open it with ksnip which you can add the " -e" to the end of the command for open image for editing.

Hope this helps ...
