Subject description: smaller than scrot, more functional than "mtpaint -s"
 

This is something I knocked together for my own use at the commandline, but it was simple enough to write a small gtkdialog GUI and share..

Screeny

Language support thread

Like the name?

It does what it says, takes a screeny, either fullscreen or window, for fullscreen there is a customisable delay setting that is remembered.

It does have a dependency not included in Puppy, it's only small..

xwd

This is included with slackware/debian so if running Slacko or dpup-Exprimo please search your PPM for "xwd". Or if you can't find it the reports are that the Wary/Racy version works fine. (edited 120224)

For Racy/Wary/Lupu you can use the attached xwd.

Enjoy!

(sorry, no screen shot Laughing )

EDIT
0.8 posted
-bugfix in "waiting.." splash, thanks Tman,L18L
-added NLS ar (thanks BDX) and fr (thanks charlie6)
0.7 posted
-added gettext for localisation. Many thanks to L18L
-consolidated all code to one script, I thought that would be easier and probably smaller for gettext
-bugfix for window shots resizing if smaller than 600px, again L18L
-added "noarch" to the extension, only "xwd" is arch dependent
--NOTE: I have removed all the older versions.
0.6 posted
-changed the delay from an entry box to comboboxtext and hard coded delays from 1-10 to prevent the use of insane values in the entrybox
0.5 posted
-rearranged the gui, all checkboxes now in "File" menu under Preferences
-added option to open in defaultpaint (usually mtpaint, but can be gimp or whatever you set as defaultpaint)
-added simple help file and about file.
-windowed shots get the forum compat treatment if chosen too, be aware that small windows get enlarged, but if you don't want that turn off forum compatibility
NOTE: your settings will be removed on installation, easy to reset
0.4 posted
-forum compatibility mode for fullscreen only, thanks to Flash
0.3 posted 120731
-added frame to window shot, thanks to CatDude
0.2 posted
-removed duplicate code
-added naming
-bugfix, fullscreen splash was running concurrent to main function.

Just d/l and tried it out.

a) Did not include the cursor in the screenshot

b) Saved to /root with name of capturexxxx.png

c) FIletype provided by program

It is a small program and gives you either a full screen or the window you specify by hovering mouse over the window.

Nice--

May I ask for some help?

I have Lucid Puppy 5.2.8-004.

I tried to configure package manager to include ubuntu-lucid-main, and then searched for xwd

Not found.

Thank you.

I downloaded the screeny. pet and the xwd provided by 01micko in this post and it works in my full install of puppy 5.2.8-004. I am posting from this version and have captured both full and window with no problems.
I tried in slacko-5.3.2.4 and it works there also

yep it works on 5.29 too, just using the racy xwd.pet

however, i loaded all three ubuntu repositories main, multi and uni - xwd not to be found -

Does this mean it isn't in the repositories - could have been added after lucid?

Nice one Smile.

And small, at that.

In regard to the comments above about including the cursor and mouse pointer - yes, please, but this feature is seemingly hard to implement, judging from all the screen-shooters out there ...

Cheers /MHHP

Hi guys

Thanks for reports.

Sorry about that ubuntu thing , I'll edit the main post.

I am not going to add features, I made this for myself and decided to share.. adding "features" makes bloat and introduces potential for bugs, This does what it does, and it's very simple to edit the image in mtpaint, gimp or whatever.
I may consider including the user's choice for naming the file.

Have fun Razz

-EDIT

Ok, I posted v0.2 and added naming.. if you must save in other than your $HOME directory you should be able to add any subdirectory as part of the entry. For example:
Code:
my-documents/my-screeny
will save as $HOME/my-documents/my-screeny.png. Don't add the file extension.
Also fixed a couple of small bugs.

see up page

I don't see how you can say Screeny is more functional than mtPaint. True, Screeny can capture just an open window, which could be very handy, but mtPaint can crop and/or scale any screenshot to 600 pixels wide, so the forum will show it, then save it as a jpeg. Smile

"mtpaint -s" Wink , which is the engine behind the mtpaintsnapshot.sh in most Puppies.

Maybe I could add a checkbox to auto scale full screen snaps to 600px wide.. I think you would like that feature and it shouldn't create much bloat or introduce bugs.

--------------------------------------------

Later, ok now has a forum compatibility checkbox Smile

Very nice. Quick, too. Smile

In that shot, if you had chosen "Window", which window would Screeny choose?

I'm glad you asked that Flash.

The cursor turns into a cross hair looking cursor and you just hover over the window you want and click.

Cheers
