Here is a cool screen capture implementation

#1

I like a lot the implementation of Manjaro XFCE screen capture.
If I screen capture something, the tool easily allow me to create a IMGUR link…
So fast !

This is the IMGUR Link here

Here the animated gif to show you (made using peek)

Nice. :nod:
I was looking for something like that.
Does it react to the PrtSc key, too?

It’s not that I want to promote another distro LOL but we can take / steal good ideas from them.

So yes , print screen for full screen and CTRL + SHIFT print screen to select an area. it’s the IMGUR integration made simple that save me so much time when providing screen capture on forums ( here, other, reddit, )

It looks nice. ‘One tool for one task’ means I need to open a image editor to highlight something (to show what is the main point or where to click with the mouse), or maybe I need to make some areas unreadable (screenshot from a Email client or Chat program).
In that cases I don’t want to open an extra tool. Under windows I’m happy with greenshot. I don’t know what to use under Linux. This is one of the reasons I am writing more text, than show a picture.

Sure! And it looks good :slight_smile:
What is the name of the tool ? and how much resources it needs? (that’s important for elive, heh)

Tip: use “pstree” to find the name of a process (maximize terminal first), and the RES column in htop to know the used ram memory of a process

What I would do with the actual tool:

  • Press the hotkey to take a screenshot in Elive
  • Hit Alt + Esc, run gimp
  • Paste the copied screenshot on it (there should be a simple way to paste as a new project or something similar)
  • modify something…
  • Save, or maybe there’s an option to copy the new image to clipboard

Yeah, (touch)-phones are much more practical for these things :slight_smile:

I have recently seen many xfce4-something applications to be pretty nice and with a good unix philosophy (do one thing and do it well), they are pretty light too so they will be probably included in Elive in the future versions, good point for this one!

Let me note this in my unbeliable-infinite todo list :slight_smile: :rofl2:
