Dear all,

I'm looking for a screen capture program for inclusion into puppy. I need a simple, fast and memory intensive capture utility. Mpaint is there but I'm not so impressed with it. I know there is shutterbug but can it capture a selected region as well as full screen ? where can I get the shuterbug? It is not available at the foxtool's site. any suggestion / feedback is welcome.

thanks and regards

Shutterbug can easily capture just a section of screen. Just drag and resize the box over whatever you want.
Shutterbug is part of a library system of small utilities which is needed to run the XFileExplorer.
http://puppyfiles.org/dotpupsde/dotpups/Libraries/Fox-1.6.23-Vector.pup

"This dotpup includes:
- shutterbug (create screenshots)
- Adie (Texteditor)
- Fox-calculator."

Thank Fossil,

It is more than enough. I was thinking to include the adie but the dotpup has all these utilities.

thanks

Is there any configuration option in shutterbug to define keyboard shortcut to take screen capture. any way to configure shutterbug to work as well as ksnapshot ?
thanks

I don't know about configuring shutterbug, but I know even less about ksnapshot. What is it exactly that you're wanting the app to do, apart from taking snapshots?

See this thread, where I've uploaded scrot:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=1012075335&t=24806

It's a commandline screencapture program, & needs libgiblib & Imlib2 installed. The output from scrot -h gives:

Code:

# scrot -h
Usage : scrot [OPTIONS]... [FILE]
  Where FILE is the target file for the screenshot.
  If FILE is not specified, a date-stamped file will be dropped in the
  current directory.
  See man scrot for more details
  -h, --help                display this help and exit
  -v, --version             output version information and exit
  -b, --border              When selecting a window, grab wm border too
  -c, --count               show a countdown before taking the shot
  -d, --delay NUM           wait NUM seconds before taking a shot
  -e, --exec APP            run APP on the resulting screenshot
  -q, --quality NUM         Image quality (1-100) high value means
                            high size, low compression. Default: 75.
                            For lossless compression formats, like png,
                            low quality means high compression.
  -m, --multidisp           For multiple heads, grab shot from each
                            and join them together.
  -s, --select              interactively choose a window or rectnagle
                            with the mouse
  -t, --thumb NUM           generate thumbnail too. NUM is the percentage
                            of the original size for the thumbnail to be,
                            or the geometry in percent, e.g. 50x60 or 80x20.

  SPECIAL STRINGS
  Both the --exec and filename parameters can take format specifiers
  that are expanded by scrot when encountered.
  There are two types of format specifier. Characters preceded by a '%'
 are interpretted by strftime(2). See man strftime for examples.
  These options may be used to refer to the current date and time.
  The second kind are internal to scrot  and are prefixed by '$'
  The following specifiers are recognised:
                  $f image path/filename (ignored when used in the filename)
                  $m thumbnail path/filename
                  $n image name (ignored when used in the filename)
                  $s image size (bytes) (ignored when used in the filename)
                  $p image pixel size
                  $w image width
                  $h image height
                  $t image format
                  $$  prints a literal '$'
                  \n prints a newline (ignored when used in the filename)
  Example:
          scrot '%Y-%m-%d_$wx$h_scrot.png' -e 'mv $f ~/images/shots/'
          Creates a file called something like 2000-10-30_2560x1024_scrot.png
          and moves it to your images directory.

This program is free software see the file COPYING for licensing info.
