Does any one have any advise on a screen capture program for puppy 4.2.1 beside mtpaint that will let you select your own window or margins. I have found one called Xnview on this site that is in zip form and how would I download to my puppy? Any input on this would be surely appreciated.
Thank You,
Jodi

All sorts of things can take screenshots if you just write a little script and set up a shortcut key or menu entry to call them - gimp, something I think called fox shutterbug, xpaint...
I suggest you run petget and install xpaint from the Puppy 2 repository. If it doesn't come with the screenshot menu entry that it used to have, I can upload that for you. It lets you drag a box around the part of the screen you want to capture.
Or you could look through the recent posts... someone posted some new script for screen captures not long ago, although I don't remember exactly what it did. Hopefully it wasn't a certain person with a habit of posting unnecessary bloat to do simple tasks Smile

BTW, do you have the Windows version of Xnview (it requires Wine, and is the best program for viewing photos on most digital cameras), the old Linux one, or the new Xnview MP (which isn't complete enough to be really useful)?

There's already a puppy app called shot you can get from Dingo's site or mine.

http://www.gposil.com/pets/shot-0.1.2.pet

You use the Print Screen Key and it asks whether you want full screen or just window... Smile

In case that xpaint package doesn't come with a snapshot menu entry, here it is.
This script saved as /usr/local/bin/xpaintsnapshot.sh
Code:
#!/bin/sh

xmessage -center -bg "#ff00ff" -title "Screen snapshot utility" -buttons "" -timeout 8 "
There will now be a pause of 10 seconds to allow you to adjust
windows as you wish, then the mouse cursor will change.
Note, you cannot take a snapshot of an open menu.

...then, drag and release mouse left button over area of interest.

This window will disappear in 8 seconds from its creation." &

sleep 10
exec xpaint -snapshot

This saved as /usr/share/applications/Xpaint-snapshot-screen-capture.desktop
Code:
[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=Xpaint-snapshot screen capture
Icon=mini-camera.xpm
Comment=Xpaint-snapshot screen capture
Exec=xpaintsnapshot.sh
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=Graphics;Utility
GenericName=Xpaint-snapshot screen capture

Could you describe in more detail just what it is you want to do? Perhaps there is a way to do it in mtPaint.

jodi5549 maybe i've misunderstood what you want , do you want to capture a window or screen to file or not.

search for "shutterbug" here:
http://wellminded.com/puppy/pupsearch.html

It allows to set a "lasso-frame" on your screen to choose a region to grab.

Very Happy Wow! Thank you everyone for all the good answers. I'm am really enjoying the new pup 4.2.1 w/seamonkey. Just really don't like mtpaint for doing screen shots.
The xnview 1.70.pup from dotpups.de/dotpups to my win desktop and is a zip file at 2.52 Mb and not sure on how to get that installed on the linux machine anyway.
Thank you MU, I found the link to shutterbug at puppylover.netsons.org and it is as a pet, I have no problem with downloading those on the linux system and looks like what I'm looking for especially the lasso-frame part and as long as I can send the copies through an email or such, also looks fairly small.
Thank you also to disciple, never done any coding yet, too new w/puppy. I don't know where to begin or where to go to do that. Can you tell me where I go and do I put everything that you got in both the boxes, is there a way to copy and paste in puppy?

I just posted those in case they aren't included with the xpaint available in petget, but I think they are included.
If they aren't, you just need to create new blank files with the paths/names I posted, put the text in them, and right-click > permissions on the .sh one in rox, to make it executable.

Is it possible to change the default save location in CAPTURA?

And if so how?

Doesn't seem to be able to capture:
The cursor...
Open drop-down menus.

Unfortunately...
I want to save the jpg files in /00, but don't want to put the CAPTURA binary file in there, because I reserve that folder for temporary storage only.
Ideally I'd like it to be empty most of the time, so that anything in there is noticed immediately, and easy to find, being at the top of the folder hierarchy.

Well downloaded Shutterbug, but unfortunately won't come up when clicked on. It was showing after download of missing library file libfox01.6 so.O. How will I download that please?

@ Sylvander

Just create a link every time you run Captura

Try:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
ln -s /usr/local/bin/Captura /00/Captura
cd /00
./Captura
