The Xfce4-screenshooter is an application that can be used to take snapshots of your desktop screen.
This application allows you to capture the entire screen, the active window or a selected region. You can set the delay that elapses before the screenshot is taken and the action that will be done with the screenshot: save it to a PNG file, copy it to the clipboard, open it using another application, or host it on Imgur, a free online image hosting service.
This manual describes how you can use Xfce4-screenshooter, and how you can configure it to your preferences.
- Using the application – Make screenshots with the application interface or the command-line
- Using the Xfce panel plugin – How to add and configure the panel plugin
xfce4-screenshooter currently supports three different levels of debugging support, which can be setup using the configure flag `–enable-debug` (check the output of `configure –help`):
|yes||This is the default for Git snapshot builds. It adds all kinds of checks to the code, and is therefore likely to run slower. Use this for development of xfce4-screenshooter and locating bugs in xfce4-screenshooter.|
|minimum||This is the default for release builds. This is the recommended behaviour.|
|no||Disables all sanity checks. Don't use this unless you know exactly what you do.|
