Hi,

First of all- this is my first Linux experience- wonderful distro, and one I now pretty much know my way around.

My question is, is there an equivalent of PrintScreen for Puppy where I can take a screenshot of the desktop and save it, as I'm wondering how the screenshots on the main page were taken?

Thanks Very Happy

Start / graphic processing / a choice of two screen capture routines

if using mtpaint (an excellent program with very good support from Mark Tyler)
go straight into any area (on the "print screen" capture) you wish to highlight and press delete - it will crop

Hope that is what you require

if you have icewm installed, you can press ctrl+alt+P to take a screenshot ... or just press the PrintScrn key (it dosn't work on my machine, but it might on yours)

Description  I just tried this on my machine - using Puppy 1.0.3 installed on 512meg Lexar JumpDrive and the combination worked like a champ - see attached photo - the Print Screen alternative did not, however.

I know next to nothing about Linux, but so far have

Where the heck does it put the screenshot file when you press ctrl+alt+P?

Hi,

when I do the Cntl-Alt-P keystroke combination, the m-paint program comes up in a new window and that allows me to name the photo (be sure to put a .jpg or other graphics extention on it or it saves it as a text file), and save it where I want - either Puppy or more likely the hard drive (aka WindowsXP), to save space in Puppy.

yes, the screenshot is done by mtpaint

you can select an area and crop the area

in any case, save the picture by clicking File, Save As (or press ctrl+shift+S) ... then close the mtpaint window

and, yes, include the extension in the file name (jpg, png, xpm, and so on)
