psnapshot application -system to edit screenshots
German French and Spanish locales available
Edit: Jan 2012 ... now totally localized!!

I put together this group of apps to work together
to take a screenshot, save it in a folder
(called Screenshots) then edit it later with mtpaint
if you wish.

It is all done simply. They are just small scripts,
so there is no waste of RAM or hard disk space.

It is currently used by Exprimo and Lucid Puppy
among others.

To install: Just download and install psnapshot.
The NLS locals are for French,
Spanish and German translations. They are optional.

Here's another option that you may be interested in.
It's easy to create a one key launcher such as pressing
the 'Print Screen' key to launch the psnapshot program.
(It actually launchs 'mtpaintsnapshot.sh')

Here's how...
Find the number of the key you want to be your launcher.
A method to do this is explained here

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=68164

Once you get the key number , it's easy to set up
if the operating system hasn't reserved this key for something else.

A keystroke combination such a CTRL-shift-P
is easy to set up for JWM (Joe's Window Manager)
I explain in the posting below.

Both SVEN or Xbindkeys utility don't need the
key number to launch 'psnapshot' because
of a well written config app.

With SVEN make sure you turn off its on-screen message
(it's irritating)

SVEN is explained here
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=1537373318&t=63158

Note: Sven or Xbindkeys has to be running to be effective!!
You can check this by typing 'top' at the terminal

So it's a very powerful but slimned-down system for
screen snapshots.

Most other attempts to do this have resulted in bloatware.
It has been localized using Zigbert's method.

To install in JWM here's how I did it.

I put the following line in /root/.jwmrc
(near the bottom is fine)

...and now I can open psnapshot with the keystrokes
ctrl-shift-P

Alternatively the file /root/.jwm/jwmrc-personal can be edited.

new version 1.4 of psnapshot

I put it all in one easy to install package.

Now there should be only one menu entry for
screen capture. It should now say 'psnapshot screen capture'

Corrected a grammatical mistake in German translation.

I explain how to set up a computer to launch an application
with one press of a key here. By the way this
applications name is 'psnapshot' not 'mtpaint -s',
so use the name 'psnapshot' when executing an application launcher.

New version 1.6 of psnapshot

Improvements:

1) The name of the program is prominent in window
so the user knows what program he is using

2) I corrected the spelling error in name of .desktop file.
This required a new pinstall script to be written.

3) It is now totally locallized. I tried my high school German. Laughing

4) I took some German expressions from RSH (who has
put together Lazy Puppy).

5) .desktop file changed slightly to show German name in menu.

Hi don570,

Thanks for doing this... some nice improvements overall.

I modified your scripts slightly... since I already had a "screenshots" folder at another location. For pSnapshot screen capture I did:
Code:
cd /root/my-documents/photos
mkdir -p screenshots
echo -e "\nlast_dir = /root/my-documents/photos/screenshots" > /tmp/add_text


I made similar changes to the screenshot browser also.... but really this is just a matter of personal preference.

Cheers,
Monsie
