I guess it is a stupid question but I did not find out how to do screen shot?
I do not remember if I already had done it in the past ...
I am using LXDE Desk Top (also have KDE)

You can use e.g. spectacle (from KDE Applications) and configure a global shortcut for it (don't know how you do that in LXDE).

taken from my i3.confg for i3wm

Quote:
bindsym Print exec "scrot '%d-%m-%Y_%H:%M:%S_screenshot.png' -e 'mv $f ~/Screenshots/'"



You need to define a key for this command line.
Code:
scrot '%d-%m-%Y_%H:%M:%S_screenshot.png' -e 'mv $f ~/Screenshots/'


for i3wm i use the acpi keyevent Print to execute teh command of scrot '%d-%m-%Y_%H:%M:%S_screenshot.png' -e 'mv $f ~/Screenshots/'

There are other ways of course also

genstorm,

I did not find 'spectacle' but found KSnapshot in KDE and it works ok!
Hope there is any application for LXDE as well...


tw04l124,

This command should be ok for LXDE? I will install scrot and see...

Thanks

Yes it should be.

I think every desctop environment allows to define custom keycombinations.

You need to define a custom key combination and than add that command.

It is a very small program which does it jobs. I use a very small memory footprint X-server, very minimalistic.

LXDE is much too big for my demands and requirements, memory and cpu cycles wise

You need to create a folder named Screenshots in your home-folder or Change ~/Screenshots/ to a folder to your liking.

the %... thingies are for date and time. i have my reason why i use it like that way. (% thingies ... are bash internals)

you can check the manpage and adapt it to your needs.

Or like these as taken from fluxbox where 107 is the printkey and Mod1 is Alt.
Code:
None 107 :Exec tm=$(date +%F,%T) && import -window root /tmp/screenshot$tm.png && display /tmp/screenshot$tm.png
Mod1 107 :Exec tm=$(date +%F,%T) && import -frame -window $(xprop _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW -root | awk '{print $5}') /tmp/screenshot$tm.png && display /tmp/screenshot$tm.png
But you need imagemagick installed for having "import" and "display".

Yup sounds like OP's on KDE 4 / LXDE (rather than Plasma 5 / LXQt)... ksnapshot is nice though. 8)

I just alt+f2 then scrot -d 1, the one second delay avoids capturing the run pop up box.

Do you mean, that there is no ksnapshot for Plasma 5?
As I was looking for good olde ksnapshot (and tried prtscrn button, which was by default opening ksnapshot before) and was surprised to see that "emerge -s" did not find it. Also couldn't find it from packages.gentoo.org either as its own package.

But well, that spectacle does look good! Just have to bind it to prtscrn button...

spectacle is replacement of ksnapshot for plasma 5

There is a generic (command line) tool, part of imagemagick

/usr/bin/import

Can take individual windows or the root window.
