Theres a cool little command line screenshot application (scrot_0.8-11) that works well on lucid 5.1 in the ubuntu repository - maybe one to add to the lucid repo?


I find the mtPaint-screenshot and this command line option helpful but less efficient than a possible alternative.

Humble proposal/request: Can a keyboard key be scripted, or a bottom toolbar icon, that with a single press or click captures the screen?

Reasons:

1. In some cases any screen activity causes what it displayed to change or to disappear.

2. In some cases mtPaint or a command line app is too slow and what is to be captured has changed or disappeared.

3. Complicated seems unnecessary decades after "PrtSc" was added to every keyboard.

Am I missing something? Other than my mind, that is?


Not sure with mtpaint but with scrot just make a script in root call it scrot.
Code:

#!/bin/sh
scrot


and add it to .jwmrc-tray in root
Code:

<TrayButton label="screen">exec:/root/scrot</TrayButton>

You may need to right-click on the volume control and choose Full Window and scroll down and make sure the correct Capture inputs are selected and they have volume.


Yes, it worked. Thanks Smile

PostPosted: Sat 14 Aug 2010, 13:19    Post_subject: Lucid strong point  

These latest 3D games illustrate a big strength of Lucid i.e. the excellent Ubuntu compatibility. The extra libraries that contribute to the larger-than-normal ISO size is the reason that it's possible to take Ubuntu Lucid Lynx packages and easily (usually) build a pet from them that's simple to install for the average end-user (one click on the pet). So the extra 30MB is a good trade-off between size and usefulness.

If you are recommending a version of Puppy to anyone, this aspect of ease of creation of good pet packages, is a good reason for recommending Lucid Puppy.

If I get the time I'll look into getting the Flight Gear flight simulator running as a pet.

Do you reckon it would be easy to get Xfce desktop up and running all?

as far as I know icewm does that with one of the icons bottom left - the quick options button - or did I imagine that?

I know the principle, but never did it.
The command for the screen shot is mtpaint -s
You could assign this command to the printkey.
There is where my memory fails. I don't recall how to do it.
You need the keycode for the printkey for this.
You can find that code by executing xev in a terminal/console.

I made a tool (see my signature) that makes it super easy for anyone to make a pet or sfs out of debs, if you want you can try it and maybe suggest where I can make improvements. debs2pkg or alien2puppy, the former is what it says and the latter supports Slack tgz and txz formats.

James C and tubeguy were busy making packages and James managed to get at least 1 in the repo, arora, a neat qt, webkit browser, and don570 liked it too.

Basically all it does is run a loop to unpack the debs in a folder, has an option to strip, has a pause to give you a chance to sort out the .desktop file and icon then runs mksquashfs or petget. It has a help option too, all command line but I tried to word it very simply with error messages if you make a boo boo and just a splash of colour for fun. (There is also a fun version of debs2pkg called debs2pkgfun which gives you a little reward at the end. courtesy of Pizzasgood). It may be a time saver for you, though I know you are professional programmer Wink

Cheers

Would this work on a avi to dpg or wmv to avi converter app?

Or are those specialized and need particular attention to convert to Puppy?
