Alt-F2 usually presents a 'run' dialog

Scrot is a screen capture tool that is usually installed.

Press Alt-F2, enter a command such as
Code:
scrot -d 5
and click OK and 5 seconds later there will be a screen capture image in your home folder.

Hi rufwoof.

Does that key combo exist in all WM's ?

Also, in the ex-factory DpupStretch-7, there is no scrot utility. For a basic
screen capture function, one can type < mtpaint -s > in console.

TIA

Not sure musher0, certainly works in debian gnome and debian lxde. This web page suggests it also works in KDE and Xfce.

Hi rufwoof.

Ah. Then probably not in other WM's unless you adapt their config file.

I remember that on some Puppies with jwm, a screen cap app is run by
hitting the "print screen" key.

BFN.

@rufwoof

Alt-F2 in tahr (and I remember from many earlier pups) is an alternative to the right-click functionality on the ROX header ... gives Send to, Layer, Stick option etc.

Thanks B.K. Johnson.

I've just been experimenting with ctrl-alt-f2 ... f7 multi user key combinations Smile that switches to a login prompt (multi-user).

Log in as user, startx, ... multiple times (frugally booted). Make changes in one and its not reflected into the others i.e. totally separate instances. At least I guess that is until you save changes.
