Don't like waiting 10 seconds to arrange your screen for a screenshot, when 2 seconds would do? No problem. Just untar this revised mtpaintsnapshot.sh script, put it in /usr/bin, run it, wait 2 (or 5) seconds instead of 10, and make good use of all those saved seconds. If you want yet another number of seconds, it's as easy for you to modify this script as it was for me. Just look at this code:

Code:
<button>
    <input file icon=\"gtk-refresh\"></input>
    <label>Wait 5 Sec</label>
   <action>(echo 20; sleep 1 ; echo 40; sleep 1 ; echo 60 ; sleep 1 ; echo 80; sleep 1 ; echo 100 ) | Xdialog --title 'Puppy Screenshot' --beep-after --wrap --screen-center --center --no-buttons --gauge 'Please wait & prepare your screen ' 10 50 100 ; exec mtpaint -s &</action>
   <action>exit: Screenshot</action>
   </button>


On the "action" line, you'll note that the numbers after the "echoes" are percentages of the total time to wait. So, if you wanted 4 instead of 5 seconds, you'd just change "5" to "4" in the label, and change "echo 20" (etc.) to this:

Code:
(echo 25; sleep 1 ; echo 50; sleep 1 ; echo 75 ; sleep 1 ; echo 100 )
