Screen Shot

#1 Post by Distro-Don » Wed Mar 11, 2009 5:36 pm

I am having a problem with my stock broker's web page. I sent them a message about it and they replied:

"If it is possible could you send us a screen shot of the error you are having."

I don't know how to get a screen shot.

Kmenu>Graphics>Screen Capture Program. Pretty self explanatory from there.

Pressing the key labeled Print Scr on my keyboard pops up the screen shot dialog on my install of Mepis 8. You can then save it or copy it to the clipboard.

Yes, that works on my M7 too!
Thanks for the tip - it was new to me.
Now I can dispense with the Ksnapshot button which I had on my taskbar.

If anyone is interested, there's also Shutter in the community test repo, which has quite a few features.

I wrote a zenity script for taking complete or partial screen shots. It also allows you to select the image type, png, jpg etc. OU812 has since converted it into gdialog. It works very well.

On Mepis you would need scrot, zenity and gdialog for it to work. It was actually written for antiX which is why it doesn't use kdialog, no KDE.

@Stevo: shutter wants to install something like 40 megs! Does that sound right?
